To Have and To Hold

It's a public holiday today so we've had a long weekend to play with! We've been babysitting two of our grandies and as our son is working away from home and our DIL was interstate we decided to head off for an overnight stay with our son and then leave the two grandies there today. DIL and our eldest granddaughter were arriving there today as it's school holidays. It was a pleasant little trip and got to walk down the jetty and along the foreshore on a wonderful Spring Day.
Well it's now quite late and I've realised that I haven't done my post for the new challenge at Get Creative Challenge. Our theme is - Wedding and the sponsors are the wonderful ~ All Dressed Up, Bugaboo Stamps and The Fantasy Art of Nikki Burnette
Here is what I made using an image from All Dressed Up.
