I love this die from Simons Says Stamps and I've seen it with the waste used with coloured card stock behind to show up the word. Maybe its me but I have to add the bits inside the letters and swirl bits.
Its fairly easy to do I use the actual word that was cut out as a guide and place the loose bits with a glue pen.
The papers are from the Simon Says Stamps February Kit although I already looked inside the box and thought how much I liked them. I didn't realise was beautiful papers were inside and here's my problem, they're so pretty I can't bear to cut them!
The secret celebration was my parents renewing their vows. Dad never brought Mum a Wedding Ring when they got married so he wanted to buy a ring for their anniversary it snowballed into renewing their vow and a blessing with a little party afterwards. You may know Mum is in a Nursing Home but the staff got behind it and even came in on their day off. Emma even brought her wedding veil for mum to wear.
