Invitation to Fun

Hello and happy 2015.  Every year I invite several dear friends over for a day (now weekend) of crafting, laughing, eating, drinking, and FUN.  This year is the first year I’ve held this event on the island, while all of my friends live in California, thus adding some logistics to the weekend (think big slumber party). The theme is crafting and cooking (how yummy is that). The invitation consists of 3 parts:

  • The front part is the basic invitation.  The images were cut from the Cricut “From My Kitchen” cartridge.  The paper is Strawberry Slush, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Baked Brown Sugar, and retired DSP from Stampin’ Up!

  • The last part of the invitation is the “Menu” which outlines the events during the weekend.

I’m thrilled to say that all of my friends are attending and are making the trip from California to the island for the party.  I’m so excited!  Now, on to making the fun decorations, games, and goody bags.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Happy stamping!



Wow – I cannot believe it’s been so long since I’ve been able to post anything. Between the remodel and my annual scrapbook/stamp party, it has been difficult to get to the computer. Hopefully, I’ll be able to post on a more regular basis now. Here are some photos from my party:
