Family Memories

Good afternoon all, hope everyone is well. 
Has anyone else been getting spam in their blogstream this week? First it was stuff about the XBox then it was cleaning all from places I wasn't following! At least the spam comments seem to have stopped for the time being - you'd think people would have better things to do with their time!!
It's been a busy week making a start on my nephew's wedding stationery - so far so good! All the invites and RSVPs are cut and half are scored and folded with ribbon attached, hopefully the rest will be done today between the laundry and housework! I'm still awaiting final confirmation of the wording to be used so nothing is printed yet.
Managed to fit in a play with a new kit from Template Dreams between batches of invites. Called Distressed Elegance it goes on sale today and it's gorgeous! It includes a mix of papers (31 total) and elements (65 total).

I've used it to scrap photos of my hubbies maternal grandparents taken on their honeymoon in 1935. Pages have been made in Craft Artist.
