She is going to kill me when she sees this on here!! Oh well... Love you Myra!! :) So, since I was kind of pressed for time, I decided to combine her party decorations with our new challenge at Practical Scrappers!! This week the challenge is EMBOSSING!! You can heat emboss (like I did) or use your Cuttlebug or any other machine you have to emboss!! Easy Peasy!!
As you can see on my birthday banner (the entire banner is in the picture at the top of the post!) I heat embossed the brown triangles with a clear ink and clear embossing powder. I thought that the brown by itself was too plain, but using patterned paper would be too busy! Doesn't it add a nice elegant look to the banner?! I used my Gypsy to design the banner and the font is Gypsy Wanderings.
And these were the centerpieces on all the tables. Since Myra's husband specifically requested that I stay away for black and all the negatives to having 40 signs hanging everywhere, I decided on the subtle brown with the green, purple and blue. Which, btw, whe LOVED the color scheme!! Yay!!
And here is a LO I did for her album using the sketch from A Crafty Little Place! The sketch was fun to play with... go over and check it out... you have until the 14th to submit your LO! And while you are there, be sure to check out the fabulous sale they are having to get ready for CHA... you can find it by clicking HERE!!
Well.... I love to throw a party but I have to admit, I am glad to have this one behind me!! Now maybe I can take the next few days to stop by all the blogs I neglected all last week!! And then, I might actually get some time to get my scrapbooking done!! LOL!!
