Image Swap - Suzanne's Aug. Image - Invitation

This month is our SCS image swap it was Suzanne's turn to share.  And boy did she ever give us a doozie!!  Suzanne sent us image bits and pieces of a scrapbook store front and challenged us to create our own Store.  What a brilliant idea!!  So much fun.  Now, I must confess that I had a bit of a different idea!  I decided to create an INVITATION to come to my house for a  stamping party.  I have been planning to invite a few friends over to make Christmas cards and thoguht this would be the perfect opportunity. 

Here are some photos of my end invitation:
The front of my Invite.  The "your invited" sentiment if a Studio g stamp.

A close up to show some of the details.  See the bottle of pink glitter - real glitter on that baby!!  (click pic to get a larger image).


More details - see the wood grain door, the vellum window panes, and the gold door knob.... so  much fun!


And here is a picture to show the details inside my 'house'.  I used one piece as a bench and shelf and added things to it.  I cut off the top few woodmounted stamps and added it to the bottom pile.  I also covered a few of the scrap books and recolored them so that it did look too repetative.  Also, I had to change the 'Paper For Sale' sign (because at my stamping party I would not be selling stuff but would be sharing my stash with my friends) to Help Yourself!  I picked a background that might look like wallpaper, and even added a piece of artwork ....


And here is the back of my Invite ... it has all the details!   A full day of stamping, laughing, and having fun! Wish all my swap friends could come!!!

Well, have a great Sunday. 
Next week I have a new Take 3 Challenge so drop back in on Monday!

I want to be there too! Great job and great ideas. I have no idea so far so it is just sitting on my table. You were definitely thinking outside the box, the idea of having a door open is fantastic.
