Celebrating Life

We began Dads' 90th birthday celebration at Creekside Park near Mom & Dads' childhood homes.  His 91 year old first cousin Bernice and her niece Gerry were first to arrive.  After one hour we moved to Keyser where the Michaels were glad to let us chill in the game room of their pub.  Family and friends attended.  Young and old, it was a fitting celebration of life.

The watch is an actual watch piece Bob gave me for "potential scrapbook material".  I recall getting it as a token gift one year we purchased a subscription to Time magazine.  It features the "Life" logo.

Here's the digital invitation I made for the event.  I used this same format for Michelle's shower invitation.  The kit was a sampler from Michelle Shefveland of Cottage Arts.  I love the mask and the color.


 My sister was able to feature part of this postcard size invitation on the Evite she sent to many of the guests.
