I got these done and mailed out on 11/18/10 - exactly 1 year to the day. These were actually fun to make and I love the responses I've rec'd already. I originally had a couple of typos that caused me to re-print all of them which was so annoying and frustrating but all worth it in the end. I printed them on glossy brochure paper that I purchased from Office Depot. I used the Alyee's free template and used someone's ticket jacket template. So sorry for not remembering who...I have so many saved and didn't save them under the user's name. I created our monogram in publisher purely by hand. Just messed around with stuff until I found what I liked. I will start working on my passport invites in Dec/Jan.
Thank you to everyone who has posted their DIY projects. You have all inspired me.
