I'm back!

It sure doesn't feel like it's been that long since I posted....but it has been forever!!

I have been busy working on my sisters baby shower. I finally finished her invitations!! All 84 of them!! I completely changed my mind from the last post about her invites. She found out she's having a girl (YEAH) so I designed the invites to match the crib bedding she picked out.
I used Papertrey Blush and Chocolate Brown, and also used the polkadot color match ribbon on some of them. I ordered 15 yrds of ribbon but that only got me through half of the invitations. I ran to three different stores trying to find a similar ribbon. I found the brown satin ribbon at Walmart and actually like it better than the polka dotted ribbon. I had all the info printed up at Kinkos in dark brown ink on white paper.
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE how they turned out! They're so her style!

HER BEDDING (super cute!)
