Bryan is our churches Worship Director. He is one of the nicest young men I know and like a son to me. He is extremely talented, super humble, kindhearted, patient and someone who really loves and appreciates FOOD.
I always wondered when he would meet someone because he lives a very busy life and doesn't have a ton of free time on his hands due to all of his musical endeavors. I remember once when one of his friends was asked, "Does Bryan have a Girlfriend", his friend replied, "Why, Yes he does! Her name is MUSIC".
Well... things have SIGNIFICANTLY changed in Bryan's life recently. At the end of June he popped the question to this wonderful girl who joined our worship ministry at church about a year ago. Her name is Kileigh. The more I get to know her, the more I love her. She is joyful, sweet and fun! Her smile lights up a room and I can totally see how Bryan fell head over heels in love with her in such a short time.
To celebrate their engagement, I wanted to make a card and also bless them with a cheesecake which is Bryan's favorite dessert. I looked through the catalog to find a set to match this occaison and since Bryan and Kileigh are so cute and sweet together, I decided Foxy Friends would be the perfect set to use.
It was fun to see their expression when they saw the card and immediatly discussed which one was the Fox and which one was the Cat. I told Bryan he was the Cat because its darker and if you take a closer look, the Fox is wearing a diamond ring and has rosy cheeks that I made with a Pink Pirrouette marker. I also drew in a smile with a Project Life Journaling pen.
The Foxy Friends has a coordinating punch that you can use to create all kinds of critters. In this sample however, I purposely didn't use the punch to show how easy it is to make some of the animals with just stamping alone.
I fussy cut the characters out with Paper Snips and used one on a card and one on the coordinating cake decor. I was REALLY happy with how this turned out and was hopeful that Bryan and Kileigh would be blessed by the gesture.
Well, would you like to meet the Happy Couple?
Here they are.
Aren't they cute? And know what else?
They SUPRISED us ALL by getting MARRIED on the Fourth of July so now they are officially Mr. and Mrs. Sanchez.
It is exciting to see how God brought these two together. I wish them nothing but the best as they begin this exciting journey as Husband and Wife.
Congratulations Bryan and Kileigh, you will be Foxy Friends Forever!
