I'm back-LO's and bday invite

Sorry I've been Mia. My work office was moving to a new space and it's been mentally and physically exhausting. I made the switch from an office to a cube, so my internet access isn't so good:)

I did the "too cute" LO for the Virtual crop and these other pages came recently.






We are doing Yo Gabba Gabba for Karl's bday. I decided to make the invites, but I think I'll just be copying it and printing as a 4x6 picture.

So here is what I have so far:

I would like to put DJ Lance on the left side:

and Karl on the right (which picture do you like best?):

also, I'd like to be the YGG logo some where, but I don't want it to crowded. I'm not going to use much text. Probably just It's a party at my house... rest on the back.

What do you gals think? If I need some digital help, would I have a volunteer to help me?

All your pages are great! I think the "cute" one is my fav.

But I have to tell you that your paper piecing for the invites is AWESOME! Really, really cool effect!

Let me see if I've got the idea down for your invites ... you'll print out the picture and put it on the outside? Then you'll put the picture of Karl and DJ Lance on the inside along with the invitation wording?

I like the picture of Karl on the left, btw. Smile

I'm not quite sure about the execution of the rest of the invite.

I'm thinking either, printing dj lance and Karl really small and putting them on the side of the charaters.. or scanning as is, and adding dj lance and Karl in digitally.

The info on the back will have no pics, just the when, where, why...

Does that make sense?

Love your pages. Just love how you used the ribbon between the flowers. For the invites, I like the left picture best.

Ah-ha! I gotcha now. I'm a little slow. You want to add DJ Lance and Karl onto the front along with the other characters. Smile

I would scan your card now. Then ask someone who's good with digital work to extract (take out the backgrounds) Karl and DJ Lance. The quality of their pictures will be better to print if you add them in digitally.

Very cool idea! Smile

I am digging the invite!!! Natalie is hugely into YGG right now, so I see a lot of them. Smile

I like the right picture of Karl if you had to use one of those two ... but if it were me, I'd take a fresh picture of him without anything in the background and see if you can get eye contact. Smile

Wow, that card is fantastic! I can see where you'd want to make copies for the rest. Save that one for his scrapbook!

Did you use Lorita's stamping class for the owls? So cool! and I love the clothespins on the Cute layout. Great job! Missed you around!

Those are great! Love the family pic LO. The whole design is really neat. Love the clothespins on the too cute LO too, darling! I am no help on the invites, but wanted to say you really put a lot of work into them and it shows and I like the pic on the right best. TFS and welcome back girl!

Thanks ladies.

Karl has his brobee sweatshirt on today, so I might try some pictures tonight, but I really don't have a "blank" back drop. I'll let you know if any turn out.

Charys- Yep, the owls (and the flowers, which were too dark) are from Lorita's class. I had fun doing both of those.
