So my first entry in the Sassy Cheryls Show Me Thurday Blog two week challenge is the fruit of my labors. So far this has been a Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday endeavor, but I can happily report that I am done.
First on the agenda was the invitations. I went surfing the web for monkey invitations since that was the theme she wanted to use. I found tons, but we agreed on the wording of one, and this is the final result. The monkey clipart is from a kit from Clipart Corner and the polka dotted papers are from a digital kit called Modern Dotty Blue Brown from Cupcake Cuties. I have used the two kits for all my birthday projects.
My second project was note cards. In the South, we're all about monogramming, so I had to used the diamond monograms that I purchased from the Silhouette Store and then added the monkeys to the bottom.
My niece wanted a Birthday Banner, so this is what I came up with. It took me all day to figure this one out to keep from having duplicate papers next to each other. I also blue up and print and cut out the monkey in the palm tree as a starting and ending point for the banner.
She also wanted a photo banner. Having no idea what pictures she's going to be using and whether they'll be 4x6 or 6 x 4, I made the months separate circles, and then made slits in the frames so that they can be turned in either direction. The wonderful thing, is that the Silhouette cut all slits so they're centered in the frame. Now to make them a bit sturdier, I have blank frames glued to the back of each of them.
Finally I saw a high chair banner and had to make one for baby Charles.
So that's my SMT post for the first week of the Challenge. Be sure to grab your camera and snap a pic of what you've got going on in your life. It's a two week challenge, but there are also two winners of a Sassy Cheryl Image of your choice. Now how can you lose?
