John & Candy Slabaugh
June 6, 1992
New Paris Church of the Brethren

Today is not only a special day because it is Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, it is also my 20th Wedding Anniversary!  I can't believe it has been 20 years already.  John and I started dating at the age of 17, our senior year of high school, and we dated for five years.  We were married on June 6, 1992, one month after he graduated with a B.S. degree in Aviation from Purdue.  I wore my mother's wedding gown, which we added just a few extra embellishments to.  I can't imagine life without him.  We are planning a special vacation later in the year to celebrate.

For my Heartfelt Creations projects this week I used HCPC 3472 - China Fragments PreCut Set and cut each teacup out with the Spellbinders Nested Tea Cups Shapeabilities.  I just love teacups and this set is so fun to color with Copics.  I think most ladies would love to receive a card or tag with a beautifully colored teacup on it!




Make sure and check out the other great projects this week from the Design Team on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.  Join me next week for Heartfelt Creations June release, the Garden Romance Collection.  Have a good week!
