Be Inspired # 47- Birthday Invitation Challenge

Cuttlebug Challenge blog is one year old! To celebrate, each week of September our challenges will be a birthday theme. Each DT member chose a different theme, and I chose my personal favorite: Spa. Head over to Cuttlebug Challenges to see fab inspiration for all sorts of party themes (not yet...leave me some love first; I love comments!)

I used Core'dinations cardstock (whitewash collection.) I used both sides of the pink. The Provo Craft Cuttlebug embossing folder is "Spots and Dots." My designer paper is BasicGrey Urban Prairie, and the stamp set is My Favorite Things (MFT). I used SU! punches for the sentiment and SU! dimensionals for the main image panel. I colored the image using copic markers I borrowed from my friend, Dora. I own one copic marker, E00. Time to invest in these *sigh*. I love them!

I've had two spa parties; both about 4 years ago. About time to plan another, don't you think? I have a friend who is a massage therapist; she sets up her table in my living room and gives a 20 minute massage. In my kitchen I have a Mary Kay consultant come to do their version of a facial and satin hands. In my den/family room I have a Body Shop at Home consultant come and do hot stone foot treatments. Ahhhhhh...
