A friend of mine is getting married in June, and has asked me to make her invitations. So I've had this thought in my head for a while of what I would do - I just never got it on paper. Well, I sat down tonight and FINALLY worked up my prototype. I'm pretty pleased with it - I just hope the bride is also!!!
I also wanted to get in on the challenge over on Nichole Heady's blog - for a chance to win a great Papertrey Ink canvas bag and a $100 gift card to PTI! Woo-hoo! Being my hubby just got reduced to a 4 day work week, this could CERTAINLY come in handy :)
I used one of Lauren's Timeless Templates, and got to work. I decided to make the uber-cute Purse-onality Clutch, and make it match the prototype of the invite...I'll give it to the bride to be, as a thank you for giving me some business...but WHAT could I put in it???
I looked around, and had some chocolate 'Riesens' candy...how PERFECT!! I wrote a little note inside listing all the 'riesens' Jackie and Jim are such a great couple. And I finished it off with a tag made from PTI's borders and corners monogram set and Mixed Messages.
You can see the invite in the BG, but I want to wait to post details, as Jackie hasn't seen them yet - and I don't have her permission to post names and such. That I'll save for another day... :)
Thanks for stopping by!!
