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.

A big pile of invites, lol!

Goodie bags - labels made using the color, print and cut feature.
Same for the label on the Rita's gift card (one of the goodies in the bag).
Silhouette files
Various papers from my stash
Wobblers - each car is mounted on one
