These were the invites to my son’s 10th birthday Pool Party from this past weekend. This was not my original idea…I cased it from THIS card on The invites were very bright- I used the striped paper from the Fall/Winter 2007 hostess scrappin kit: Creative license. This would work great with The Stampin Up paper Pack Spring Break or Jersey Shore. Awesome colors for a Boy invite. I got tons of compliments! The outer envelope was stamped with “your invited for fun in the sun”

We had 11 kids to swim– it was a great (and easy) party!

Stay Tuned for the Party bags and the treat inside of them!


Stamps: Various clear Alphabets (CTMH & Technique Tuesday)

Paper: Creative License simply scrapping kit, wild wasabi, pumpkin pie, whisper white

Ink:wild wasabi, pumpkin pie, black

Accessories: 1 1/4 inch square punch (to make the pennants), pumpkin grosgrain ribbon, brads, decorative edge scissors, pumpkin marker
