Mum and Dads 50th Anniversary

I've been naughty and neglected my blog for over 2 months. I've been so busy with my sisters preparing scrapbooks for our Mum and Dads 50th Wedding Anniversary. At the beginning of March we spent a fantastic long weekend in Devon celebrating their anniversary. Me and my 2 sisters (plus hubbies) booked a farmhouse, did all the catering and made scrapbook albums for them. The albums took ages to do as we needed to trawl through boxes and boxes of photos (pretending they were for my family tree), they needed scanning, printing, trimming and embellishing. We had planned for 6 months and kept it a secret. They didn't know they were doing anything until 2 days before we left and still didn't know where they were going until they arrived. When we got there my mum burst into tears. A great weekend was had by all, loads of food, wine, relaxation and a very smelly farmyard next door.

I'm not a big fan of gold, so decided to make them a card using red and hearts.
