My little sister is getting married in September…so we’re planning another shower for August. My mom wanted to go a different route with these invites because my little sister, K, has different tastes than my other sister, A, does. (we had A’s shower last year and her theme was Frog Prince)
My mom bought a few different magazines to look through to look for ideas for K’s shower invites and she finally found one that she really liked. I am not sure of the name of the magazine, but it was a scrapbooking invitation one. it had a lot of examples and then had where to get the materials for it and what to do. Well, I told her I could copy any design in the book as long as we could find a similar vintage picture.
The site where the picture came from was listed, so we went there and luckily the same picture was available for digital download! So we bought the sheet, and got started. The vintage picture came from www.lunagirl.com.
And here’s the completed outside of the invite!
I am a horrible scrapbooker and I am not sure where I got the pieces from, so I will have to go back searching to give the proper credits…and I will definitely make sure that I do so!
In the middle of printing them…well actually I got about 10 done, my printer died!!! My mom owed me a birthday present, so off we went to Best Buy for a new one.
Here’s my new little baby…an HP Photosmart C6380 All-in-One:
It’s WIRELESS too!! woo hoo! I can finally print from my laptop. And omg, the ease of not having an extra cable to hook up! I didn’t need to spend the extra money on the new cable or spent the time under the desk hooking it up.
The new printer prints SUPER fast too! It just FLEW through the invitations! It’s SOO noisy though! Sounds horrible, but does a great job, so I am pleased with it.
Thanks Mom and Dad for my HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPY Birthday gift!
Yesterday was such a long day…my mom got here at 9am and left at 12:30am!! I barely slept the night before, so I was totally wiped out by the time she left! Of course I had some time to tweet a little and play some Farkle on Facebook…ugh, my new addiction!! So dumb…but this morning the dogs got me up around 9:30. I got up, fed them and got online for a bit and then around 12:30 pm I laid back down to sleep. I ended up sleeping till like 4! I was sooo tired!
My husband and I were going to dinner with his folks tonight, so I got up and got ready and we headed to Buca di Beppo and amazingly, we got there before they did! We had a really nice dinner…they have the BEST food there! YUM! We got this Pizza called Pizza Angelo.
Tender chicken breast, mozzarella, roasted corn, fresh mushrooms, fresh thyme and Alfredo sauce topped with Parmesan potato chips.
It was SO good! Sounds weird, but soo yummy! We also had a great salad. It was a good time!
My husband’s parents gave us a Costco card for gas or groceries or whatever and the hubbs wanted to go fill up his tank for tomorrow so he went up there tonight. Of course, he went in to look around and they had the first season of True Blood. I’ve heard it’s the Twilight for adults and that it’s loosely based on the Sookie Stackhouse books…which I have a few of on my iPod, but I haven’t listened to any of them yet and I’ve wanted to see the show, but we don’t have the cable channel that it comes on.
So, he bought the 1st season because it was like 15.00 cheaper there than it is in any other store! Costco rules! Anyway, tomorrow we’ll start watching that! I will have to write about it after we’ve watched a few of them.
I think it’s funny also that some of the other Twilight fans who’s blogs I read are also going to be watching True Blood for the first time!
Ok…gotta go help the hubbs check for kitty poop under the bed…fun job…NOT!
