A Mardi Gras Wedding..2 LO's and a FREEBIE!!

Well, my Beautiful Daughter got married on the 18th! Finally, it's not like they've been together for, they are 'Middle School Sweethearts' and have been together since they were 14yrs old!
It was a beautiful wedding, she did such an awesome job planning it. She also saved some money and made the veil, Ring Bearer's pillow, Garter Belts, Money Bag for the money dance, tags for one of the wedding favors and some other stuff!!
It was Mardi Gras/New Orleans themed, instead of Bouquets for the Bridesmaids they carried Mardi Gras masks like the ones on the cake below. We also did the 'Second Line' from the wedding venue to the Reciption at the Mardi Gras Museum. Instead of the 'garder belt' my Son-in-law pulled out a huge pair of Mardi Gras was so funny! But he did eventually find the Garter and toss that! lol...My other daughter caught the Bouquet....Hint Leigha and Tommy!!!
 I cannot wait to post some LO's with her wedding pics, I'm looking for some really nice wedding and Mardi Gras kits...I'd LOVE it if I can find a good combination kit to use, but I know I'm pushing my!! Here's a couple of 'show off' pics...
1st there was laughter.....

Then there were tears.

Back to School and 'Wiggin Out' Bachlorette Party LO's

Ok, so I have SEVERAL LO's to post! lol been a busy lil bee lately. My Grandson started Pre-K and his Mom and Dad are finally getting married! On Sept. 18th...WOW that's soon ain't it?! Well, this past Saturday we had her Bachlorette Party, it was a 'Wiggin' Out' party where we all wore wigs. Since we live in the New Orleans area, you guessed it we went to Bourbon Street!! It was also Decedance Weekend, which is a festival for gay/lesbian/transgenders, so we ran into a few that night and we wanted to take pics of them and they of was fun to say the least, but some pics are too 'risky' to put!! It was my first time going out with both my girls and we had a Grand time!! Bri rode a Whale, which is just like riding a Bull, but it was a whale. She got pretty drunk by the end of the night, but my sister and I took care of her, along with a few friends and family that stuck it out until 4 a.m.!! On the way back one of my nieces wanted to bring Bri into a strip club w/men in it, Bri's never been to Bourbon Street bar hoping like that and she wouldn't have went into the club. But as drunk as she was she followed my niece in, not knowing that it was a strip club AND the also simulate certain acts on stage, me and my sister went running in, her daughter got into an arguement w/someone cause he put his hand up her skirt. As we were leaving, my other niece started screaming and stuff, we looked back and seen she was hugging someone, we thought it was someone she wasn't it was Danny Bonaduce...ya know the red head from The Partridge Family! Well, she took pictures with him and snuck my daughter back in and got one of her with him! That pic is in one of the LO's below!

First I'll post the LO's for Mag's Graphics, whom I'm CT'ing for over at Moo Too Designs. Then after I'll post some other LO's from some wonderful Designers also over at Moo Too Designs!
