Party Time

It has been exactly one month since my last post. Did you miss me? Better yet are you sick of seeing my last post? I am!!!! I went out of town earlier in the month, and came down with the flu, and have been a bit wiped out since. I took a break from blogging, just couldn't wrap my head head around anything else. I  am so easily distracted, so I had to use my energy on other things.  So anyway, hopefully I will post a bit more regularly. Please forgive me for not stopping by I have neglected that too. I will be by shortly though. I have been peeking at everyone's awesome projects, Just did not have much energy to comment.

In the summer and often the kid's winter break, I throw a party of some sort for the girls in our congregation, before they go back to school. This winter I got brave and had a slumber party. We had nine girls! There was pizza, dancing, games and lots of fun! It was loud, but lots of fun. Anyway, these are the invitations.  It is a bit of work, but doing it assembly line style, it goes pretty quick. 

This is laying them all out, then I attached everything all at once. 

 Mt attempt at darker skin. Still working on that one.

 All of them completed

You obviously enjoy a challenge, and I don't just mean having 9 girls for a sleep over! Making all those identical cards was also quite an undertaking and one which paid off. They look amazing, I love the image you chose, the colours are great as are your bows.

WOW, Stacey. This batch of cards must have taken a while to do! Those were the days when my daughter had a slumber party with a few of her friends - we only had two stop over at a time though. No room for more!
Isn't that image of Mo's just perfect? I am sure the girls all loved their cards too. Brilliant!

Stacey, I am sorry you were so ill, and felt 'out of it' for a while. (Sometimes, we need a break from blogging, too)

I love that you had a slumber party for all those girls, and that is the NICEST slumber party invite I've ever seen!
