Carnival/Circus Birthday Invite

Well Hello There!

I bet you all thought I completely disappeared from the blogging world!

I have been hiding out doing lots of crafting and sewing, but haven't learned to juggle it all with blogging yet, so I hope you will stay with me until I get better at it!

I'm really excited to show you all what I have been working on lately and here is one of the first items I want to showcase - a Birthday Invitation I made for my Granddaughter's First Birthday!

I made this using the My Memories Suite Digital Scrap Booking program and was so pleased with the results!
I am so amazed at all the cool stuff this program does!

If you are interested in trying it out, I have a link to purchase the software in my sidebar and below this post. If you use the code you see listed there (STMMMS91285), you will receive $10.00 off your purchase!

I also purchased some additional graphic sets (digital kits) to make this invitation.

They were: 

I found the fonts for free from sites such as: dafont and fontspace and some were from the installed Windows Fonts I already had on my computer.

It was so much fun making this invitation!

When I was all done designing the invite, I uploaded it to Snapfish and then ordered 1 hour prints (5x7) to be printed at my local Walgreens.

They turned out really nice and I was lucky that Walgreens was running a 50% off on prints that day, so I received 20 (5x7) prints for $15.45!

The Birthday theme was of course old school carnival/circus and my awesome DIL "K" along with her Sister  "S" did a great job decorating:

The best part of all...was watching my sweet princess "C" eating her cake and enjoying every minute of it!

Well, that's all for now...but stay tuned...because I have more on the Birthday Party...I made some cute matching dresses for "C" and her big Sis "B" to wear for the party and that will be the subject of my next post!

Thanks for visiting me and I hope you'll return soon!
