    Default Hi girls! (update and bday invite pics)

    Sorry its been so long since I posted! I really haven't scrapped much lately. After my blitz for Xmas (11 reindeer crafts - thanks Charys for the idea! and 9? separate LOs to give away) I was kind of scrapped out lol. I even (gasp) bought cards for several birthdays this year so far, which I hadn't done since starting scrapbooking last January.

    Things have been pretty crazy around here and are about to get crazier. We bought our first house (yay!) and will be moving in at the end of May. DH and I have our 5yr anniversary this weekend and are celebrating by going to a concert next week...10hrs away, and I'll be 37wks pregnant I'm taking the infant seat and a hospital bag just in case lol! My church is hosting a ladies conference the week after we move into our house, the same week I'm due, and I'm supposed to be playing on the music team AND hosting my mom and sister (my mom's one of the speakers, plus being around hopefully for baby). So my scrapbooking stuff is packed and it'll probably be a while before I post anything new on here lol.

    BUT, my last project before packing it all away was the invites I did for DD's 2nd bday party on April 26th. They're super simple, but I just wanted to share

    The front. I used textured cardstock, some adhesive foam shapes and stamped the words with a set of stamps from Michaels, and ink from a Colorblok/box? (alpine shade):

    The back. I bought 6 Jolee cupcakes for them and they worked perfectly with the ribbon colors I had I just wrote the invites out, stamping would have taken forever! Pics taken before personal info added of course:

    Thanks for looking!
