The Cake Topper

Once Sara saw little Wedding Birds on other wedding cakes, it was all over. So be it...here is my humble attempt...not quite finished.

A BIG thanks to the free pattern from 'Spool Sewing' for helping me along with this project!!!

soooo cute! I love those birds! Will you be making some to sell after the wedding? I know those dresses are keeping you pretty busy now.

I love the idea of "love birds" as the cake topper! You did a wonderful job! As if you could do anything less.

I normally don't care for weddings or the horrific amount of prep for them, but I've SO enjoyed this. I think it's all the fun and refreshing ideas.

Also? These are some of the best engagement photos I've ever seen. The one with them sipping from a milkshake may be my favorite. :)

I love your birds! I think they are the cutest out of all of the other ones, they are gonna be perfect!

And I could look at Sara's pictures all day, they are so adorable! Eeek, I'm getting so excited for it all, and I won't even be there (sadly). It's gonna be awesome. Love you my twin aunt! ;)

I was having problems for the last two days viewing your blog. Err. It was driving me crazy. I'm so glad whatever it was cleared up.

Love the birds. M.L. I just love everything about this wedding.

The pictures are so great too. They are truly a cute couple.

Looks like I wasn't the only one with problems viewing and posting on your blog...it's fine now. When I saw the bird pictures the other day, the engagement pictures weren't showing...they are all so cute, but then so is the couple!!
