Halloween Birthday Party Invite

Oh my, I just realized I haven't posted anything in a month.  I must say my life has been incredibly busy!  I know, I know no excuse....YOU MUST TAKE TIME TO CRAFT!!!!!!  I have made a few things in the last month but really haven't had the time to keep up with my blog, shame on me! :(  I will try harder I promise! I have been busy making invites for my sweet Grandson Brayden's Halloween birthday party!  Take a look, let me know what you think! 

 Please excuse the quality of the pics, I took them with my iPhone at the kitchen table to send to my daughter for approval.  LOL  These have to go in the mail so I keep embellishing kinda light.  My images are cut from Happy Hauntings: Tree: all layers cut at 3.5  Headless Horseman: all layers cut at 3.  I added glossy accents to my pumpkin and the eyes on my tree just to give it a little shine.  The "you're invited to a" is from MPS invitation only stamp set.  It is not really glued down yet, that's why its a bit crooked, I actually decided to ink around the edges, so my finished product that I don't have a pic of is a little different than this one.  I printed the actual information on my computer and added it to the inside.  I also inked around the edges of these on the final products.  I made 20 of these invites! 

On a personal note, I don't normally post anything personal on my blog but I am so SUPER DUPER EXCITED I really need to share.  I decided about 11 weeks ago to make some life changes one of the most important is my health translating to being way over weight!  I joined Weight Watchers Online and am happy to report that in 11 weeks I have lost a total of 18.5 lbs and approximately 3 inches overall!  This is a huge accomplishment for me as I love, love, love food, especially fast food!  I have given up a lot but I must say I feel tons better!  Thanks Callie for all the great encouragement!  You are my inspiration!!!!!!!!!!  Sorry for the ramble but as I said I am bursting at the seems with my accomplishment thus far! 

Have an Awesome Weekend!
Until Next Time (hopefully not so long, lol), Happy Crafting!
