Since this is my very first hop I'm participating in I'm super excited to share my project with you. My project for this hop is an invite to my son's birthday party being held at a slot car race track, hence the theme on the invite, lol. Of course, all pieces were cut using my Cameo, and there sure were a lot of pieces, lol! The pattern to the slide card was found on YouTube, the link is included in the recipe below. A lot of pieces and work but my son thinks it's totally cool so that's all that counts!!

Invitation closed...

Invitation slid open, party details are on the pull-out.

I'd like to share a tray I made for Easter. The first picture was taken before I glazed it, the second picture is after glazing. My first time trying this technique, a learning experience for sure but a lot of fun. Now my $2 Target tray is forever preserved even though I'll be lucky if my son believes for one more year, sigh....

Tray & Ribbon- Target $1 section
Paper piecing - Scraptastical Kreations
Papers - recollections Bold Basics
assorted silk flowers from my stash 
Glaze - Studio Multi-Medium
