~Toning Down My Frilly Scrapbook Ways~

Good morning my friends,

Since I usually scrap for show, or for "artistic" reasons, I find it
hard to tone it down a bit for my regular every day life occasions.
This week (for instance) I had to make invitations for my son's 9th B-day party.

I made these invites and I knew if I went crazy it was
going to take me days instead of hours, and it would also cost me
more than the party itself LOL
But in the end I am happy with my project.
It was so cool to be able to print and cut the entire thing with my
Cricut Imagine, then just add the stickles and label tape.
Justice was blown away! That is what counts! :)
Sometimes I have to remember that "simple" is just dandy!
Not everything is going into a museum of art LOL
It was a fun project and 100% worth it.
So...who's coming to our pool party??!! YEEHAW!!!!!

Please stop mentioning the Cricut Imagine. If I end up wanting one of those I think my hubby will divorce me (especially after he bought me the Expression and the Gypsy!)...Seriously these came out amazing! You are very talented.
