Happy 51st Anniversary Momma & Poppa

I can't believe how quickly this past year has gone by.  I swear it was only moments ago that I was wishing my parents a happy 50th!!!  

Fifty-one years ago today my momma and poppa exchanged vows at an alter in a church in Toronto, Ontario.  There have been lots of changes in their lives this past half century but the one thing that has remained consistent is their love for each other.

So, happy anniversary to two of the best parents any child could possibly dream of and thank you for being the role models I have looked up to all these many years.  I am sorry that we can't be there with you today but know that you are in our thoughts, as always.

Now to the rest of you out there reading this, as some of you know, special occasions in my life and in the lives of people that are important to me means that everyone gets to celebrate.  So, on that note I have created a special digital paper freebie for you.  Actually, there are a total of three, just different variations on a theme...

Each of these papers is 3600 x 3600 pixels (i.e. 12 inches) and is published at 300 dpi.  Credit information for the templates used to create these papers can be found in the credit note below.  If you are a card maker you can always resize them smaller without distorting the quality.

Psst...I have a couple more papers planned to go out tomorrow in honour of Remembrance day as long as everything goes as scheduled so pop by tomorrow evening for some more freebies.

Until next time,

Congratulations to your parents for reaching such a milestone in their marriage. I envy people who stay together through all sorts of trials, tribulations and love as love is what keeps everything alive and together. So many younger people just give up when they are faced with problems and I find this sad that they are not prepared to give things a go and sort out differences or problems that may have. I (unfortunately) will never get to celebrate 50 years of marriage and I celebrate along with families and friends who have got to this wonderful length of time. I hope your parents had a marvellous time celebrating their wonderful milestone and may they enjoy many other years to come. Hugs, Jen xx
