Puttin' on the Ritz

Heading out of town today for a wedding at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Atlanta.

I admit that I am more than a little nervous. Because, although I've never been there, I've heard that it's "fancy". And that the wedding and reception will be "fancy". And, I am just not a very fancy gal. My fingernails aren't manicured...they are broken and usually have dirt under them from working in the garden. My hair isn't styled...it's normally pulled back in a ponytail. I don't usually dress up...you will normally find me in comfy shorts, tee shirt, and tennis shoes. Give me a weedeater or a rake and I'm fine. Give me a room full of people in suits and cocktail dresses and I am sooo out of my element. I am excited about seeing my family though. And, while I joked with my uncle about showing up in my "best pair of overalls", I will be there...in a dress and heels. Still...THIS is more my idea of RITZ:



See the pretty scalloped edges on these crackers? Fancy, right? biggrin

Create something with scalloped edges and link back here by Thursday, April 29th for a chance to win a prize. Have fun!! Oh...and wish me luck on my night of "fancy".
