Send A Message

Hello fellow crafters,
Well, I'm not sure how to title this project, but as you read and see the pictures below, you'll understand why I named this post Send A Message.

Our friend has turned 60 and she is retiring from 42 years with the same company.  She's having a birthday/retirement party...get it 60*42... "Who's Counting Anyway"  I used the Jasmine cartridge for the lettering and welded them together in the Cricut Craft Room.
I'm a picture taker, not a professional by any means, and as most of you know from my comments about your beautiful scrapbook pages, I've often noted that I don't scrapbook. I have never done a single page **YIKES**
However, what I do with my pictures, I create a digital photo book online (I use Photo Center, very easy to work their site) and have the book printed.   You add the photos then you can add comments to the photos etc.

Being that I will not know many people at this party, and I'm taking their picture, there will be no way for me to add comments of what those party guests would like to say to Janel.  
So I thought outside the BOX...and came up with a DRY ERASE BOARD and putting the title of her party as the header on the board.  I bought some fun colored dry erase pens and I'm going to let guests write their own comments to Janel and have them hold the board up in front of them and take their picture then I can add it to the photo book. 

I think Janel is going to get a kick out of this...especially when she sees the board being passed around at her party and not really know what the heck that's all about LOL
