Prom Invitations For Clayton HS

My niece Nicci attends Clayton High School and is on the Prom Committee. She knows I stamp so she asked if I would help make the invitations and tickets. With it being such a small school with limited "funds" and it just sounded like it would be fun to do, she didn't have to ask twice! ;o) I asked the girls from my Scrap N' Stampers Group if they would be willing to help. And they were MORE than willing!!! (THANKS AGAIN GIRLS!!)

My sister (Nicci's Mom) and I came up with the prototype and she typed it all out. We had most of the paper cut & scored. Then on Tuesday April 15th we brought the "goods" to class. Some of the girls brought some supplies like adhesive and star punches. We set up stations and got to work. We had fun so I shouldn't call it "work"! It didn't take long to get 100 invitations and tickets done. We still had time to talk and snack!

This is the front:

The colors are Night of Navy, Basic Black and Silver.

{I wish this was a better picture!!}

On the inside all the info was typed out and the right side lifted up and the lyrics for the Prom Theme Song were typed inside. The song was I'll Be by the Goo Goo Dolls.

They were very simple design and turned out so nice.

We were all happy to help!

Hostess Luncheon April 13th, 2008

3rd Quarter 2008 Hostess Thank You Gifts:

As a way for me to say "Thanks" to Hostesses, I hold Quarterly Luncheons. Hostesses and their guest are invited to my home for a Soup & Salad Lunch, a FREE Make-N-Take and Dessert. (Click *here* for the yummy dessert recipe. I didn't use the berries just raspberry pie filling to top my cheesecake.) I also made the "love you a latte" cups for each Hostess. The Hostess with the highest workshop also received a cute Turtle Tote filled with a stamp set, wasabi cards, ribbon and a treat. (I forgot to take a picture of that. I'll see her tomorrow so I will ask her to bring it so I can take a picture!!)
{ **Turtle Tote Picture** added}

Here are the goodies inside each cup............................

A stamped napkin, kisses, and a latte or cappuccino to go!

Again, I would like to THANK last quarter's Hostesses for hosting a Collection Workshop or a Collection Catalog Show with me!! If you WANT to be at the NEXT Hostess Luncheon PLEASE contact me today!! ;o) The next Luncheon is Sunday July 13th for April, May & June Hostesses!

This is OUR Thing

This is OUR Thing. Jabin & Evan love to "craft" and "stamp" especially in MOM's Stamp Room! They have "their" drawers of stuff. But frequently move the chairs around to reach the things they shouldn't!! Last week I was getting ready for a Trade Show and seeing my Display Board must have gave them inspiration! Here are some things they made for me:
From Jabin:
Can you tell that this is Me??? I have heart eyes, a heart nose & a heart mouth!

Jabin with the inside of his card. I told him I wanted to take his picture. He held up his card and said, "Chee....Oh, I mean CARD!" It was SO FUNNY!

From Evan:

After seeing some cards he went and found the sets and got to work!

After making these pictures he stuck them in my display board by the card he copied.

I may have two new recruits in 13 1/2 years!
