Happy Paper Anniversary, Beth and Chris!

I was delighted to be asked to decorate my sister’s wedding cake last year, for Beth and Chris’s beautiful snowy wedding (it was so snowy, everyone got stuck there the next day!)

I am currently working on a memory box to keep our daughter’s very first baby things and early [...]
