Party Invites

I'm a fan of gadgets ... that's well known.  So I really enjoyed making the invitations for a family party that we're having at our little house.  It's partly to celebrate Christmas, and partly to celebrate the house being loved again.  Anyway, these invitations were cut from a download from SVG cuts and have been sent out to family groups rather than individuals ... which may actually mean that we've got a little over 40 people coming!!!  I'll panic nearer the time as to how we'll get everyone in LOL.

Anyway, I really enjoyed making these - mind you these were the 2nd try - the first lot my mother in law didn't feel were christmassy enough - she likes traditional colours and wanted holly leaves, so now that I know how to fill a page with the same cut, which means I have so many holly leaves that I can do the invitations all over again .. and again ... and again.

Pirate Layouts

Each year Queenborough has a Pirates Day, and as this year it was our first at the little house - I just had such fun scrapping the memory.  We had a little b-b-q for the day, and being lucky enough to live right on the creek - we had the enjoyment of watching the show from our back garden.

I can't wait for next years, as we're going to make sure we all dress up too ... and have a Pirate theme party on that day, I've already started stocking up on all pirate theme things I see.
