Project Life 2015 - My Hen Party (part 1)

I had my hen party last weekend. Crazy, right? It's ten weeks now until I get married and things are really starting to happen. I'm booking things. I'm making decisions about decorations, cars and cake. I've actually nearly booked a photographer! It's getting pretty real now - and I couldn't be more excited!

I'm not sure how ladies outside the UK celebrate with their girl friends before their wedding, but over here we have hen parties which can last anything from an evening to a whole weekend! If you compare UK celebrations to how ladies celebrate in the US, I guess you could say a hen party is a bridal shower and a bachelorette party combined. All of the women in your life are there: your friends, your family, your future in laws. Your mum in there - quite often, so is your nan! You might split the party into two parts: the under age and grandma friendly, then later on the over 18 part of the celebration. Some people throw two hen parties to cater for everyone. Either way, there are no real rules for throwing a hen party - anything goes.

My friends surprised me with a crafty hen party where we made little sewing projects, such as headbands and broaches. We popped some Prosecco and ate cake - my kind of afternoon. Later on we took the party bus (think party limo with flashing lights but inside a mini bus!) to London to see the Dream Boys. If you haven't heard of the Dream Boys, I think you can probably guess what the show was about ;)

I created this layout using mostly cards from Studio Calico and various embellishments from my stash. The 'love' card is from Laurel Lane Designs and the 'let's run amok' is an August add-on from Studio Calico; both are digital printables. 

That's all from me! I've got another hen party layout to create yet, showing photographs from the evening part of my hen. Do you know anyone who has scrapped their hen party or wedding? I'd love to hear from you if you have. Someone on Instagram recently mentioned how few wedding layouts there are on on scrapbooking galleries and blogs. Have you or do you know someone who has recorded their wedding plans and day using Project Life? Leave a link in the comments below.
