I did snap a few pictures, but the quality is not that great still. I need to start a fund for a new camera! Anyway, first up is the Altered Lunchbox I made for Catherine. I still need to print the photos of all the guests and stick them to the other side of each of the cards – but you get the idea. Next is the decorations. I made the invitation, altered a candle, made a pennant, and candlelit paperbags to line our sidewalk.
I wanted to include the text of the invitation here since you cannot read it on the invites. It is pretty clever if I do say so myself. However, I cannot take complete credit for it – I found part of the text online on a Fourth of July invite. Here it is:
We the people, of ______________ (The Anderson’s) in order to form a more perfect party, establish good will, insure memories, provide beer, hot dogs and other good things, promote a good time, and secure the blessings of friendship hereby invite you to a American Style Going Away Party for the Elfick family.
I was getting tired of the old look of my blog so I spent some time searching online yesterday for a new look. I was originally thinking of going wintry, but the more I searched I thought, no I think an ‘almost spring’ look would be better – so here it is! What do you think?
