the dess

I got a call the other day from Traci and Accucut, they were going through things at the warehouse and she wondered if I wanted the wedding dress I created for them for CHA a few years back. I went and picked it up. What I'm going to do with it , I have no idea.. but it's here. lol I have to say, it's the largest altered project I've ever done. It was a whole new experience for me... but I loved it.
It's now in the closet covered up with a big bag..but I thought I'd show you some photos before it's officially in retirement. lol



Just gots to prove what an AccuCut machine can really do huh. All the pieces are AccuCut dies.





After I finished the dress late one night, I realized ..hey she need a bouquet.


Here are a couple of photos from CHA that year. This is the matching table setting.


I have to say.. the whole thing was set up just so beautiful, it brought me to tears. Thank you Tammi, Jen and Traci!

I little walk down memory lane. lol

Oh wow! That is quite the piece. You should display it! Or I bet a bridal boutique would be interested in it. So unique!

Lots of catching up today as you came all at once. The dress, you need to see if it can be used in advertising.....it is so pretty and so innovative. The gifts, you richly deserve them. The pictures, as always, stunningly beautiful.

Simply BEAUTIFUL!!!

Charlene said...

WOW! HOW LONG DID THAT TAKE YOU TO DO? I can't imagine! You need to save it until one of your boys get married & use it to decorate at a shower or bridal luncheon or the reception. Don't ya think?

Angela said...

WOW! Loved it the first time I ever saw it! Always wondered how long it took to complete???

Oh my Heavens! I am speechless.

You cannot allow something this unbelievably exquisite to remain in a closet. There can't be a museum in the world that wouldn't want to display your magnificent creations. Please, please, please don't keep these hidden away Vicki.
