The challenge this week is "Family Reunion" and it was a difficult one for me. We don't tend to do the big reunions in England like they do here in the US so I had no previous experience to fall back on for ideas. But I've seen them on the TV and the internet and I know it tend to be a "matchy matchy" kind of affair and so that's what I went with :)

I created the logo using lots of the pieces of clipart, it has png versions of each image which makes for super simple layering, and then added the lettering. To print the logo you simply flip it so the whole thing prints backwards and then iron it on to the T-Shirt, a very simple process.
I thought it would be an easy way to remember who attended the reunion if they signed in. This could be printed multiple times and bound at the top into a pad if needed. The actual pages could be added to a scrapbook page so there would be a permanent reminder.
I used the same logo on the invitations, just printed smaller.
The rosettes simply have a cut out flower in the center (from the clip art set) and a rhinestone on top. I added a jewelry button/badge pin to the back so it can be worn.
I hope you like this, it was fun to do and very simple. And with the clip art set being only $1 it made it inexpensive too!
