Ballerina Invitation Second Set

Quickutz came out with the Paper Doll...and tons of Outfits..and one of those outfit dies was the ballet you know I had to get that!! I am loving this die! I had to make one of the invitations using this adorable die! Savanna wears Black Leotard/Pink Leggings/Pink Ballet Slippers...though on this one I had to add the Tutu....hahahaha...I so cannot wait to get her "costumes"..she will have two..for her for Ballet and another for tap!!!

I also added to the sidebar to keep on here..the 12x12 layout of her getting fitted at Dance Outfitters in Chespeake. I used tulle to add the Tutu..even though she does not have that yet..but I just had to Thank My Best Bud for this great idea..she had it in her I was at her house scrapping and did not take my ribbons..(me without my ribbons..shame..holding head down..) I am very please with this it was a sad time..the camera setting with mirrors in the store was not cooperating one there are blurry what could I do..I used white acrylic paint (Airondack Dabber) with a small dauber..and lightly went around the sofen the picture! The second layout is in the works..and I will post today I spent the day organizing all her BARBIES...and I had to finish the last few invitations for her party..

I even got bold and posted the Fall's Beauty on Two Peas..and the invites from the first set...go check it out and vote !! The next few days will be busy so I thought I would do this I am gonna be working for the two days and both nights I have things going on.

Hope Everyone enjoys my pictures and thanks for looking.

Ballerina Girl, invitations and more

Front & Back of invitation

Inside of Invitation, the actual invite!

I had to make the Ballerina Birthday Invitations. I visited several websites and local stores and no Ballet Party supplies, no invites, meaning I had to get my but in gear to make them. Using The QK Silhouette, I was able to cut out the Ballet Slippers and the ribbon bow..the tiny bow on the slipper. I had a stamp that was just the right size for the actual invitation in the card. I even had an acrylic stamp that was a cake with four candles which amazed me, Savanna turns 4! What luck..

Layout of my Cuddlebug getting fitted for her Leotard, leggings, Ballet shoes and Tap Shoes...the pictures were blurry, with the mirrors at Dance Outfitters made it hard for the setting on the camera. I need to learn more about that camera!! But I used the QK Silhouette for the ballerina, copy and pasted and then I mirrored the copied image and welded it together. Using Airondack Dabber paint and a small dauber..I was able to soften the pictures up! This layout was inspired by a layout I had seen in a book by Donna Downey. I will be posting pictures of that layout when the second page is completed!!!

Fall Is Here

Fall's Beauty

A Fall Center Piece For the Kitchen Table, I found this watering can at Hobby Lobby while visiting in Alabama. Just one of my buys there while visiting my uncle.
This is Fall's Beauty Class at All About Scrapbooks I will be doing on October 28th. I put my QK Silhouette to work big time and came up with Fall's Beauty. Call 436-4300 to reserve your spot. All you see (not pictures) are pre-cut for students. $20.00

I have been out of the loop getting back from our Trip to the Mountains. We had a wonderful time. Though I have to say, I love the colors of Fall, while there we were seeing some beautiful changing in the leaves, which is early for that time of year.

Another project I took on was making my Cuddlebug's Birthday Invitations. I looked everywhere for Balleerina party supplies and invitations, as she wants a Ballerina theme party, all over the place! I have been so busy with work, decorating the home for Fall, working on my layout and Recipe swap! Just not enough time in the day! I am working more hours these days to help Tara at work to get the product back into our computer system.

Getting Ready for a wonderful Fall Season, soon I will be adding labels to showcase what I have been working on and keeping it updated.

Have a Blessed Weekend.
