UR invited...

a lot of you blog readers know that deb and i named "maya road" as a combination of our nicknames as kids but we talked a bit less about the 3 gal in the club - j. j's nick name is jujub to us still and she is a straight up from brooklyn gal who must now admit she lives in NJ (for those from that area, you would know why that is hard - LOL).

j is getting married next year (yay!) and while looking at some invites for her, i told her that the cool ones she liked which were like $15-$30 each were expensive. so i tried my hand at making her a sample today.

this is shatung silk i had leftover from my own wedding where i made our ring bearer pillow and lavendar pillows for my bridesmaids. good thing i am a pack rat b/c now, 5 years later, i could did it out and try an invitation for j.

i was telling j i went out and bought pellon wonder under for this along with some fusible interfacing and being the city gal she was, she said "um what is that?" LOL! i personally hadn't bought that stuff in years but luckily i still knew how to use it.
so with that and my iron, i created this invitation. i think it is pretty sweet. the trick is if j is going to like it and also how am i going to teach her to make them herself? (of course, i had to throw in some maya road ribbon slides, photo corners and ribbon!)

i just sent j an email so she should get it tomorrow. i hope she likes it. i will need to send her the actual invite to have her feel it and start getting crafty! LOL!

good night, ya'll!
