My latest project and a challenge!

So, now that I have the baby album for my great niece done and the 9X9 album that I was commissioned to do for a friend done, it is time to address the needs of my own family. My son is celebrating his Eagle Scout award on June 19th and I am just starting the invitations. I have a list of 60 and I am sure I have forgotten some. I am going to be up nights all week doing this. And to top it off, I just discovered I don't have a silver ink pad! Who doesn't have a silver ink pad?? that is just crazy!

Does this layout look familiar?? It is the same layout we used for the YOU ROCK workshop. I knew when I saw the layout for club that this was what I wanted to use for Jamie's invitations. I didn't use CTMH paper, but I found some really fun paper that glitters and really represents what this award is (to me anyway!)

I got all the paper cut, and went to stamp the eagle that I have for the invites, and the stamp apparently grew legs. I hunted for a half hour for it before I gave up and called a friend to see if she could help me out. We ended up finding an eagle on the STAND AND SALUTE cricut cartridge. I tried it in red, blue and black and this is what my final product looks like.

And this is what the original card from club looked like. Isn't it amazing what changing some paper and the accents will do for a layout. I am thinking that his THANK YOU cards may have the same layout and I will use the D1408 A LITTLE EVERYTHING stamp set. I don't know what papers I will use, but I have a lot of the SASPARILLA papers left. And that is pretty masculine. Hhhhmmmm.... that could work.
Anyway, your challenge this week. Change up one of your club card patterns and send it to me. I will post it and you can rack up points! I am still keeping track of them. You might even want to give this card a shot! have fun!
