High/Low - May 9th + Freebie

Hi everyone!

I know it's been like a month and half since I did the Friday Freebie and High/Low and I'm sorry, but hopefully I'm back into it now!

So since it has been so long, I am just going to let you know about one of my HIGHs in the past month! And that is my brother's wedding. I think one of the neatest things for me about Cody and Becki is that I got to see them fall in love. Becki lived right across the street from our family in Orderville, Utah, so my brother literally married the girl next door! Becki is a year younger than Cody and they were friends, but never dated in high school. But then she was there after Cody's 2-year mission for our church.

Becki was going to school in St. George finishing up her Associates Degree and Cody began school here in Orem. He took several trips down south to see her and as far as we all knew they were just friends. Cody's best friend, Austin was on a LDS mission and somehow they decided to play a joke on him that they were getting married in November. This would be about a month after Austin would get home. They even had me do a FAKE announcement to send to him! Crazy huh?

I remember asking him:So Cody are you really interested in Becky and I expected him to say no, we are just friends. But he paused and said Yea, I like her. And then Becki ended up moving up here to go to school and they would come over to my house for Sunday dinner. It was a lot of fun getting to know her and see them together. And just the neatest thing is that I got to see it happen!

Anyways, so their wedding was on April 25th in the Mt. Timpanogos LDS Temple in American Fork, Utah and then their reception was a week later in our hometown of Orderville and I thought they did some really fun displays and decorations for their reception and I just want to share some of that with you! And they had the most unique wedding cake I have ever seen, so you gotta check it out!

I didn't take too many pictures because I was chasing my kids the whole time, but my sister took lots and then they had a professional photographer there too, so as soon as they get those I'm sure I will have lots to share. My daughter and my sister's daughter were little flower girls and looked so cute and my little Bethie caught the bouquet and that made her so happy! :)

And one of the LOWs for this past month, is just my overwhelmed schedule. I keep thinking that things are going to get better, but my to-do list stays long and never gets any shorter. I am definitely looking forward to my month break in June. Hopefully I can just find myself a little bit and get organized and find my balance!

JUST A REMINDER....that tomorrow is the last day for the 30% off sale at Digitals and my NSD Grab Bag! Next week the grab bag items will be put in the store seperately, but get it now for only $3!

Anyways, that is all for today...I am going to leave you with a freebie that coordinates with my NEW Kit, LILAC SPRING. It should be in the stores by tomorrow!

One of my newest product series is called SCATTERZ and it includes little element creations that is just a great edition to any page. The freebie I have for you today includes a Corner ScatterZ that goes along with my new kit! So enjoy!
