Abby's Anniversary Challenge

Hello my dear followers and visitors!!! Happy 15th Anniversary to me!!!!! Today, 15 years ago I woke up to become Mrs. Grimaldi!! 
Funny thing about that last name.... one of my uncles made a joke about me marrying my hubby just for the last name!! hehehehe 

Well, on the 23rd of December 1995 I got up and started to get ready.... everything was going great...... when it came the time for my dad to give me his blessing...omg!!! I am the oldest and very close to my dad. Just the thought of him giving me his blessing made me cry! Everyone came close to where I was (the den), keep in mind, I was ready for church, my make-up and hair was already done! I saw my dad come and he was already crying!!! He could not even speak!!! I started bawling!!! I don't remember if he did give me his blessing, I just remember all the crying!!! LOL funny, right?? I went to the kitchen to get a drink of water and one of my aunts thought that a sip of COKE would help me better............yep!!! you thought it right!!! I DROPPED IT RIGHT ON MY DRESS!!!!!!! You think that's bad.... wait!!!! We misplaced the keys the to rental car!!!!!! We were 20 minutes late to church!!!

But, after all that Church was the most beautiful thing ever! and the party afterwards, WOW! It was so much fun!!! 
I have to say that we just loved our wedding!!!

Thank you honey for these 15 years and 4 beautiful kids!!!

So without further ado, here is my project celebrating my anniversary!

What do you think?! I liked LOVE how they turned out!!!
I used Make The Cut software and the cuts I bought online.... need to look where! 
Paper is all DCWV and I used a Sixxix embossing folder for the dress.

and I have a little surprise for you guys! 

Joining me on this celebration I have an awesome Guest Designer!!! 
Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut
