Birthday party invite - updated at top

Here's the updated version - I matted the circle picture, changed the color of the text, and used an image alphabet for the "title". What do you think?

------------

Natalie turns 3 on the 19th. We're doing a small party for her, just inviting three families for a dance party. But the older two kids had real parties last year with a photo card invitation, so I had to do one for her too. Wink What do you think? Is it too busy? I'm not sure I really want the favorite dress up clothes on the invite - but my kids LOVE to dress up and I don't think I have enough to go around (if everyone comes, as siblings are invited, there will be 13 kids needing dress up).

Gwen, that's my favorite invite of yours'. I can't get over how cute the photo progression is! You are going to make each recipient really smile!!! Mark my words, I bet everyone is going to commment on them. And I would definitely include the dress up clothes wording, because that will be part of the fun of the party! Smile oh, I love it!

thanks girls!! especially for your kind words, Charys. Smile you always make me smile.

however, DH can't stand the color of the invite writing. He thinks it's hard to read and that I should use black (red was his initial suggestion, but that would really clash). I didn't think it was hard to read at all. Sad He also thinks the "Natalie is three" should be a different color too. ay yi yi I don't know what colors to use as I wanted to stay in the same color scheme (you know, the pink family!)

Hmmm... I think the Natalie is 3 shows up great. I'm only suggesting this b/c DH isn't set on it b/c like I said I think it looks perfect. What about if you did the shadowing on the Natalie is 3 in a dark pink (like fuschia?) that may make it stand out more than the lighter shadowing. And if the writing has him worried, how about using a white paper to make the pink show up better. You could even go a shade darker on that wording. Just suggestions- but I really do like it the way that it is.

I think it's amazing Gwen! I agree with Charys, it will make everyone smile. It made me smile. I love the little pic of her holding up the 3 fingers! What a good idea! I think it looks fine.

Well, I really don't think it's too light at all. Black would stand out too much IMO. Maybe brown? Personally I would keep the pink!

Very cute! I love the pics of Natalie!

And I agree with the others, I don't think the color scheme is hard to read at all!

Rich liked them, I guess. He said he liked them but he doesn't really get enthusiastic abou the parties.

if it wasn't pouring rain, I'd get my butt to Costco to pick them up ... I am not a fan of errands in the rain with kids.

That is so adorable. The progression of pictures is great and what a neat idea to have her holding up 3 fingers. So cute!
