Teddy Bo - Let's Celebrate!

This week Team A are hosting the challenge at Teddy Bo and our theme for this time is
Let's Celebrate!
we would love to see cards or projects celebrating absolutely any occasion you like, for example - Birthday, Christmas (for the super organised LOL!), a New Baby, New Home, Summer, Wedding, Anniversary, mowing the grass, changing your underwear, opening a paper bag LOL!, you get the idea

My mum and dad in law will have been married for sixty years in July and I thought this was the perfect image for an anniversary card. I've made a double easel with a twist (sounds a bit like a gymnastic or ice skating move LOL!) the double part is quite apt as they had a double wedding - Eric's (my hubby) dad and brother married Eric's mum and her niece (she's two years older than my MiL) which makes for a very complicated family tree, as my FiL was also his older brothers uncle and my MiL is also her nieces sister-in-law, and as for the offspring, well don't even go there LOL!
