i'm wanted (want-e-e-ed) dead or alive

I've seen a million faces -- and I've ROCKED them all!

If there’s one thing I know in life, it’s that people like to dress up as cowboys. So you might as well give them a legitimate reason to by throwing a Western-themed party and creating this hilarious Wanted photo op that's perfect for children or adults.

My friend Adam, of Guac Bowl fame, created the above bit of genius with Adobe Illustrator, using Internet examples as references. To make this yourself, he suggests:

  • Use a color printer to print this in pieces (called "tile printing") to get the poster the right size.  (Another option: Save your Adobe Illustration to a CD and have Kinko’s print it out poster-size.)
  • Tape the pieces onto a poster board.
  • Spray-matte them onto a matboard.
  • Cut a hole in the middle for people to stick their heads through.
  • Hang it from the ceiling.
  • Get ready to snap pics of all the wanted criminals at your party.

My face is already on too many "Wanted Dead or Alive" posters, so I may sit this one out! :)

Now, I have Bon Jovi stuck in my head. (To be clear: That's not always a bad thing.)

Hi, I apologize for being selfish and asking something else in relation to your post... But I don't know who to ask to!

Is there any way to send a reminder to my guests so the ones that did not respond yet are able to let me know if they are coming or not?! Or should I just re-send it to everybody again?!


Answer to Carolina:
Go under Host toolbox and there is an option to send a message to guests. That will allow you to only send it to the non-responders.

I have both songs in my head now. I need coffee.
