Snow Cute

Morning all

I'm in sunny Florida right now, weather's beautiful and I'm a happy camper!! 

It's been a rollercoaster of a week! Literally and figuratively. I've gone on some CRAZY rides in Universal Studios, I literally thought I was going to die on the Hulk rollercoaster. No joke. 

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is just…indescribable. It is the most magical place on earth, and I never want to leave here haha, just wow! 

And to top the wonderful time we spent in The Wizarding World, my boyfriend got down on one knee outside of Hogwarts Castle, and asked me to marry him…Needless to say, I SAID YES!!! :D 

We're both massive Harry Potter fans, and it was a Very Harry Potter Proposal haha, he presented me with this:
For any non-Harry fans, this is a Snitch. It is a huge part of the Harry Potter story, and very symbolic, and it's just the most amazing way to be proposed to ever. I cried like a baby. It was just before closing time in the park, so it was very quiet, just the two of us… so romantic :) i couldn't have asked for a more perfect proposal! 

We went ring shopping the following day, I chose a beautiful white gold ring with three stones, it had to be resized though so I don't actually have it just yet, when it's on my hand I'll put up a picture ^_^ I'm the happiest girl on the planet right now :) And the luckiest one! 

Anyway onto crafty matters. 

Yesterday (yes I'm a day late, sowwy!) the Papertake Weekly challenge for this week opened, and here's the info for this week's challenge :)
