On February 2, I realized that Morgan would be turning 2 in exactly one month. And that holy crap, I hadn't even started planning her birthday! I'm still working out the details & plans, but I knew I had to get the invitations done first. Last year I went with a bird theme, this year her party is going to have a rainbow theme. So I hit Etsy. I came across this lovely art by a shop called Art By Erin Leigh. This print was the inspiration for my invitations.
I don't have Word or Photoshop or any of those, so I typed the wording up in Microsoft Works. Each line is a different color. The last two are indigo & violet.
After printing, I cut them slightly smaller so I could better tell where to put the rainbows. Every piece of the rainbow was cut freehand from Bazzill cardstock.
After they were all attached & dry (I was worried they would move if I didn't wait), I trimmed them up using my paper trimmer.
And then matted them on more Bazzill.
I'm pretty happy with them!
Now, on to the rest of the planning & prep. I've got some ideas in my head, I need to get everything down on paper I guess so I can see what I've got going. But I think I need some help on activities to keep them busy. MOST of the kids at the party will be boys from ages 4-10. The only girls that I know of will be Layla (6), Morgan & another almost 3 year old. Most of the ideas I find are kind of girly. Any suggestions?
