Thank you Ruthann for allowing us to use your template this weekend. In addition to picking up the free template, please stop by Ruthann's Blog and check out her podcast called Mirkwood Designs - Adventures in Creativity! The podcast is all about all areas of creative endeavors, including paper arts, fiber arts, culinary arts, and music.
This template was super easy to work with. I initially thought I would make a father's day BBQ type apron but when I got to working on it I came up with a completely different idea... Funny how Mojo works sometimes...
I thought this would be a fun way to invite some girls to help celebrate a friend's retirement. The stamps are both from JustRite - I used the Happy Hour stamp from the Girl Time Centers and Borders set and then I filled in a rectangle with the beautiful sentiment, Celebrate from the new All Occasion Nested Sentiments. I'm in love with these new sentiments - they are generously sized and a lovely font. My "invitation" is tucked into the pocket on the apron.
This was made on the computer. I also realized after I made the invite that it could also have been attached to the back of my apron. I didn't tie my apron strings with knots - I taped them to the back then covered the back with a piece of coordinating paper. (Papers are Lemonade from Basic Grey.) This is the back of my card with the invitation - kind of cool!
Here's a close up of the Happy Hour image - I added Crystal Effects to the glass for dimension.
I finished off the set with ribbon ties, bits of pink and green rhinestones for some bling and some nesties to set things off. Here's another look at the whole set...
Please go over to Ruthann's site and pick up the apron template then come play along with Just Us Girls. For some additional inspiration, please check out our Design Team. The girls have all cooked up some wonderfulness for you. THANKS Maria for a fun challenge.
