Birthday Party Invite

My little man is turning two in less than 2 week!  Wow time really does fly!  If you don't know it my husband is a full time farmer and my son wants to be just like his daddy.  He has been in the barn and on tractors since no long after birth.  I still remember the day I went back to work and left Wyatt with his daddy, as I pulled out of the drive William was strapping Wyatt into his front carrier on the tractor!  That connection has strength into a deep love of tractors for my son.  He loves his vroom vrooms.  So in honor of his favorite thing we are having a Terrific Tractor Trailblazing Party!  I created the invitation for the party using my scrapbooking software from Creative Memories.

This is the front of the invitation.  It was created using a freebie and rubber stamping the image in yellow and green.  I added a text box.  I then saved as a jpeg and printed 4 to a page (wallet size pic).  I cut the print out and glue it to the front of a 4 * 6 inch piece of brown cardstock.  You could add some more embellishments if you wish. 

Above is the back of the invitation where all the important stuff is.  Again I used the rubber stamping option for creating the running border and the shadow for the party title.  Save as a jpeg print at a wallet size pic, cut and glue and you have created an invitation.  You can embellish as you like.  This would be simple to do in any graphic program.  Enjoy!

Break is over!

It is official my crafting break is over.  I took a good bit of time off after Christmas, mainly to focus on helping out my family and preparing for the AFBF Discussion Meet Contest.  I made it into the Semifinals and like to say I was one of the top 10 in the nation however I have no confirmation of that since we don't do an Elite Eight.  I have started laying out many projects in my head and hope to create a few tutorials for you to enjoy.  I also plan to do some giveaways in the near future.  Soon I will be posting pictures of my Christmas crafts as well.  I hope everyone has enjoyed embarking on the new year!  Get busy crafting!
