Pumpkin Pie meets Melon Mambo along with a not so Bashful Blue!

Friends of ours from church, Tim and Becca, will be getting married in June. When Becca asked me to do her wedding invites I agreed under the condition she enlist people to help out with the invites. A few weeks ago 5 us met to work on the base of the invites.

This past Saturday, a bunch of us gathered at my house to finish the invites. Becca, Sarah, Julia, Ashley, Faith, Mary Ann] mom of groom], Daryl Lynn [mother of bride], Louise, Sera & Nina [my daughters] and myself! We had a full house and a BLAST! These girls can ROCK when it comes to stamping and assembling and most of them are newbies!

Becca & Tim's colors are orange. So I combined pumpkin pie, melon mambo & bashful blue for the invites. We completed 120 invites. My friend Vicki did an awesome job addressing envelopes with calligraphy.

Here's Becca with the 120 invites. She wanted an invitation that was fun. I used the Circle Circus stamp set. This stamp set screamed Becca to me!

Here's a close up of the invites. I got the invitation layout idea from page 49 of the
Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog.

We had a great time! Thanks girls for all your hard work, you're awesome!

What a fabulous idea to have a 'party of friends' to build the invites. The invites give the feeling of being fun and happy! Love them.
