Announcements, Birthdays and Babies...Oh My!!

Well, I said I was busy, and this is why......I started off with a birthday announcement in October. Little Corbin loves everything Elmo, and of course cowboy...So, I had to combine the two for this perfect little announcement that let's all of his out of town family know he is a big 2 year old now!Next, came Meela's Rainbow 1st birthday. Isn't she the most adorable thing ever?? This invite of course inspired a great rainbow party internet search...I will blog those ideas at a later date.Then, came Mycah and Storm's last minute baby shower invitation. The mommy-to-be wanted all pink and princess theme. Since I am unable to help plan this shower(due to baby being born this week), I decided to make it pretty and simple. This way her sister can pretty much go with any type of pink princess decorations.This is a cupcake invitation I just finished last week for my niece, Jenna's 1st birthday party. I just adore the colors, and of course, her sweet little face!
And last, comes one of my favorites!! This is what I am calling "Operation Baby". My brother and his beautiful wife are expecting a baby in 3 months. He is a devoted military man, and they live far far away from her family. With his hectic military schedule, a shower is not possible to plan. So, I am sending out an announcement to friends and family letting them know where they can go to find gifts and necessities for the baby. We are going to send them directly to their home. It may not be a conventional shower, but baby JD will know he is loved!!
I have just finished our Holiday Card/Baby Announcement this week. So, after they are printed and sent out I will post the blog. I LOVE the card this year...It is not the typical bright, holiday colors I usually go for, but very cute still. I decided to do a double holiday/baby announcement card. I just hope the pics of Marshall turn out as great as the family/Catie pics used on the card....

  2. Hi! I know this is an old post but, I love your cowboy Elmo announcement. I'm doing that theme for my son's 2nd birthday. How did you put the announcement together? I can't seem to him a picture of Elmo wearing a cowboy hat anywhere.
