Putt'n on the Ritz

Yep - that' s me and my hubby. We clean up pretty well huh? ;) This pic isn't the best because it is a Polaroid - so sad Polaroids are almost down for the count. They really were a GREAT invention!

I designed this fun Top Hat frame for the Putt'n on the Ritz Dance sponsored by the Rockford/Milwaukee/Madison Marriage Encounter. This was our fourth year attending, and second year coordinating this dance. It is a wonderful, inexpensive Date Night for married couples. Couples attending pay a low registration fee to cover the DJ cost, plus bring an appetizer or dessert to share. We make a dinner out of it, because there is always plenty to choose from! You can also add to the fun by donating a raffle item and buying raffle tickets. There were several packages of hand-stamped cards donated by yours truly, and they were quite popular! So all you stampers out there take heart - recipients of your cards DO APPRECIATE receiving your lovely, handmade creations!

If you see what looks like specks on the Basic Black part of the Hat, and the Whisper White Designer Label Punch (from SU!) it's really Silver Glitter Mist Spray by Tattered Angels. It was perfect to make my top hats look satiny! You can find it in many colors! And I believe they are ON SALE now through April 18th too! Haven't used this yet? You'll LOVE it! I have received some lovely cards that used the Glimmer Mist. It gives such a lovely, all-over, light coating of glitter. I think of it like hairspray - the PERFECT finishing touch, or in this case embellishment. Buzz on over to CreativePlayStamps and get some to play with for yourself and a friend! :)

Cardstock: Basic Black, Metallic Brushed Silver and Whisper White.

Accessories: Silver Glitter Mist, Designer Label Punch and whisper White Taffeta Ribbon(both SU!),and the Creative Memories Oval Cutting System.

Juli, this is a very cute idea for the dance theme. Did you make them for all of the couples attending? Very cute!
