Someone has a first birthday coming

Our goddaughter is turning one at the end of this month. Here's a picture of her that I took while we were babysitting her recently. I touched it up a tiny bit, mostly for color, but her eyes are really that amazing!

Her mom was kind enough to let me help with her invitations. We wanted something that wasn't super girly, but which pointed out that it was a girl's birthday. We used the Sweet Always designer series paper which has some super cute polka dot paper with the unexpected color combination of orange and pink.

We made 20 copies, so we also kept it a simple card. We used the turtle from last year's Older & Wiser set, which was a hostess set from last year.

Just a couple pictures of the completed cards and envelopes.

Good thing it was just 20 because my table didn't have more room! They needed to be spread out like this to dry. Both the envelopes and cards had glitter on them that needed to dry.

Rats! In this picture you can't see that her shell is glittered! But they're cute as can be in person.
