CC115 Reason To Smile

This is for Color Challenge CC115. Use Vintage Violet, Certainly Celery & Old Olive. I have had "Reason to Smile" for a while now and it was collecting dust (not really) so I thought I would dust it off and use it. I really like this set and should use it more. TFL

Andy Picks Tessa...

I am so happy but so sad at the same time. Andy picked Tessa over Bevin. I have watched previous episode's of The bachelor in the past and I can honestly say, this time around was totally different. I cried for 2 hours about nothing but everything. Andy was such an amazing guy, that I had hoped at the end there would be 4 Andy's for four great girls. All four girls at the end deserved Andy's heart. I know the girls at the end were brave but we the viewers, felt you pain and wished with all our hearts that Andy would pick all of you.

Congratulations Tessa & Andy!

Nick, Birttney, Hannah & Jake

Sunday, I was able to get all four kids in one spot. They are growing up way to fast. I look at each of them and say "I just took them home from the hospital". Anyways...I took a ton of pictures but I think this one is my favorite. I hope all of you enjoyed your special day with family and friends.
