Everybody loves leftovers...

Everybody loves leftovers

For the older [read: frugal] generation, the best part of the wedding is the "after-party"...the one where they get to pack the leftovers! Pictured are my mum and aunt, beaming away because they scored loads of leftovers...everybody loves leftovers! *LOL*


My cousin had one of those international buffet-style wedding dinners where they keep replenishing the trays even after people have stopped eating [probably to make the $130/person price tag seem less pricey]. So when the party was over, there was still plenty of food. And the older folks started to "party" with their leftover containers! *LOL* It was hilarious to watch...so glad I have that on video! *winks*

This layout was made with Artful Delight's May 2012 kit where I'm the guest designer this month. :)

Supplies: Artful Delight's May 2012 kit, Mister Huey's mists, Studio Calico banner mask, iron grid (as a mask), Prima canvas letters, buttons, brown pen.

I too love the misting and the banners.

$130 a plate is that true? Our family is the opposite, no leftovers here, please.

Congrats on your GDT position! What a beautiful photo and lovely layout!! The oldies are funny but their generation was indeed very frugal and we could learn from that!

Awesome page and such a fun topic to scrap! I'm not officially from the frugal generation, but I certainly wouldn't turn down leftovers!

Alex said...

Evelin said...

haha... leftovers... yea... I totally get that... LOL

Love your layout... whoa on the misting!.. how do you get your paper flatten out when you mist so much on it? doesn't it become wavy? hehe.. that's my dilemma ...

Alice Wertz said...

oh yes, it's the "no leftover left behind" policy! =) my mom and aunts are the followers of that policy, too. still remember when we went to weddings in Taiwan and we always come home with bags of leftovers. =) super layout, Yvonne! now, lets see that video... =)
