LUAU Party Invitations

Thanks for visiting my blog so often! I really enjoy all of you who follow me and leave me great comments. :)

Earlier this week I showed you the College Graduation Invitations that I created with our daughter, Kati. If you missed it, CLICK HERE, or scroll down to Tuesday, May 1st's post.

Today I want to show you the Graduation Party Invitations Kati and I created.

Kati decided she wanted a LUAU party as her Graduation Party theme. How fun is that?! They have spent the last 3 months slowly gathering party supplies and planning every detail of this LUAU, including constructing by hand a TIKI BAR for the backyard. Yes, our daughter knows how to buy wood at LOWES and use POWER TOOLS. Don't let her beauty fool you, she's well-rounded, brilliant (hence the graduating with HONORS), and knows how to build. (Okay, her daddy gave her advice every now and then, but Kati made the plans for it, built it, and only asked a couple of questions about joining. )

Projects #139-169 of this year

  • LIFE IS A BEACH for Tiki Masks cut @ 3"
  • Squares cut from PLANTIN SCHOOL BOOK with Shadow feature cut @ 2 1/2"
  • Bamboo stalks from LIFE IS A BEACH cut @ 3 1/2"
  • "Swiss Dots" Cuttlebug folder for Teal background dry embossing
  • Kati chalked all of the masks using white chalk
  • LUAU cut @ 1 1/2" from LIFE IS A BEACH

Easy Peasy! These took a little longer to assemble than the Graduation invitations because of the chalking, layering with shadows, and getting glue on the bamboo stalks and all the letters. Kati ended up using the 2-Way Glue Pen for the bamboo stalks, but put all of the letters through the Xyron. I love my Xyron!

Be sure and come back here tomorrow to see what this week's Tag Theme Challenge is & enter your tag!

Aloha! :) Janis
