Anna's 5th Birthday Invitations


As you might have seen from my last Weekend Lens post, Anna wanted a rainbow themed party for her 5th birthday.

I loved the rainbow idea - especially since this time of year tends to be so grey outside (or white as the case may be).


We (Katie and I - because that's how we roll around here) decided to create a photo card in Photoshop that included a photo of her plus the details for the party. We used the "you're invited" word art which is part of this package that includes a bunch of party/event sorts of words: You're Invited Collection

We sized the photo card to fit inside these white cards from American Crafts.


And then we invited her to draw rainbows on the outside and write her name on the inside of the card.


It was awesome and so fun to include her in the process and see what kinds of rainbows (and other things) she drew. She's been really into these Crayola paint pens lately and they were great for this project.


And speaking of rainbows I love this new stencil and stamp set that's included in Simon Says Stamp's March card kit. It's now available here. Bring on the rainbows!
