Military Formal

Here's my prettied up photo! With the dress that when I bought it a few years ago was tight and when the formal that I intended to wear it to came around was too small! Now I can wear it!!! WooHoo! I created the tatted heart pendant with Swarovski crystals and I cut a length of lace fabric I had in my CQ stash for my wrap.
I love this photo of me and my hubby! We went to Sonic for ice cream afterwards and the girl who served us asked if we just got married! LOL Funny thing is we are always asked if we are newlyweds but we have been married for 7 years! It's because we have so much fun together, my hubby is my best friend in the whole world!
I love this photo too, because you can see my dress and you can see my hubby's medals! He usually has the most medals in the room when we go to the formals, this time there were a few others that had as many but they've been in the Army for more years.
This last one you can see my flowers I picked from the garden, it's a wonderful smelling red rose with a purple clematis and a pink sweet pea all wrapped in a vintage hankie that has net lace edging.

Funny thing, I never get compliments on my tatted necklaces!!! The other day I wore one into a needlework store and I got my first compliments there but no one else ever seems to notice!

Thanks you each of you for your compliments! You all are very sweet!

What a handsome and beautiful pair. I love the pic of you two cheek to cheek. That should be enlarged and framed.
