Getting Ready for Alli's Birthday...





I have got so much going on here in the next couple of months so one of the first things I think about when I start my day is getting Alli's birthday party planned, and I can put it off no longer. So, Landon went to Mom's Day Out and Alli and I put some invites together this afternoon. They were so quick and easy and I didn't spend hardly a dime on it all, okay, a little more than a dime. I was at Big Lots last week just wasting time and found these blocks of 8x8 scrapbooking paper packs. They have a lot of solid and patterned paper in them, vellum sheets, punch outs, just a bunch of cool little things and only $3.00 for the whole thing. So I got one for me to make birthday cards - "Celebration" and I got one for Alli to scrap her own book for our beach trip as well. Anyway, we ended up using some of the papers inside to make her invites and they turned out really cute. Each kid gets there own "Alli-made" invite and each one is unique.

Love the invitations! How great that you found that kit at Big Lots. I am in the process of trying to make Ethan and Ella's invitation-joint party this year. :) I say "trying" to make because you know that I'm not creative!!

Okay - so I think I just left my last comment in your feedback box. DERRRR. I'm a little dense tonight. :P

Anywhoo - Alli's invites are fabulous! I love that each is unique - how cute!
