" Be Inspired #51 Thank you Notes! "

It is week number five in their month-long celebration. The first week, we had to create an invitation to our "themed" party, then we had to create a gift bag & card and then a matching mini album, then our centerpiece for our table. Last but not least is the thank you notes.
We were to choose a theme and follow it all the way through this month to end up with a fantastic party theme completely ready to go! We also have to use a Cuttlebug embossing folder of our choice. My party theme is fishing.

Here it is allll together! For you guys that are not following Cuttlebug Challenges, you should head over there now to see what all the excitement is about! You cannot possibly know the excitement I am feeling right now knowing that I am finished and may be chosen to be featured in a magazine! GO there NOW! HURRY!

For this Challenge I used: Stamp Sets: Close to My Heart "Gone Fishing", "Hook, Line, and Sinker", and "World's Best Dad"; Cardstock: Stampin' Up! "Ivory", "Kiwi Kiss", "Soft Suede" Club Scrap, Martha Stewart; Ink: Stampin' Up! "Soft Suede", "Riding Hood Red", "Pacific Point"; Sizzix Pocket Die Cut, Cuttlebug Folders: "Tiny Mosiac", "With Love A2 Embossing Border Folders", "Swiss Dots"; Prisacolor Markers: "Dark Brown", "True Blue"; Hemp, Google Eyes, Stampin' Up! Wire Works & Crystal Effects.

Here is my invitation...tada...

Upclose of the Cuttlebug folder that I used. It was just enough to give my water waves.


There are so many possibilities for this theme. But when I was young, my mom had a fishing party for us. We invited all our friends and she filled a pool in the yard full of water. We all made poles out of sticks and she added a big hook made from cloths hangers. We fished. She had some prizes in the pool and we caught them. What fun! Everything that day was a fishing adventure. It was a fun memory!
