Arrr, Matey!

This is the quick and easy invite for my little guy's birthday party next week. He absolutely loves Peter Pan, and walks around with pretend "swords" all of the time (ie., drum sticks, play screw drivers, spoons, play gulf clubs - you name it!). So, it was no surprise when he decided, after being presented with numerous choices for party theme, he decided on a pirate party.

I needed to get 20 invites done ASAP, so that I could give some of them to friends today. To aid me in this task, I enlisted the help of my hubby for cutting paper and ribbon and stamping the map and sentiment! He actually did pretty good! While he was doing that, I was coloring. I got 10 done, and I have to finish them today.

It's going to be a pretty busy week, actually. I have to finish and mail off my other ATC swap on Monday, and prepare for my in-law's arrival on Thursday, and get ready for Wyatt's party. It's pretty bad when you start to gauge how good you're week is going to be by how much stamping time you'll get to have! (Not that I do that... A friend was telling me... Wink!) I'm actually very excited about my inlaws coming. They're bringing my little niece to play with Wyatt, so he'll have a blast!

Anywho, I've decided that, for my Prismacolor Pencils, the Papertrey new CS is SO nice to color on. Even (hate to say it) better than my cherished WW! I'm really loving that paper, and am wondering how long I can wait to buy another pack! Is it just me, or do you start to panic when you're running low on white CS???

And lastly, I have some awesome news that I can't share with you for a while, but it's killing me, because I'm dying to tell you! Stay tuned! (Insert evil laugh here.)
