i've been busy the last little bit, planning and getting ready for my little z man's second birthday.
i really can't believe he's going to be two next week!
we decided we are going to throw him a circus party with our families. it should be good times. i'll post pictures after the party.
here are the details on the invites i created for the party. . .
first, i took the little guy out to have a mini photo shoot with a big red balloon. i never thought he'd hold still, but i think he liked the balloon. i turned the images into faux "polaroids" using photoshop and i had them printed to polaroid size on 4x6 photo paper then cut them out.
next, i created some long address labels and printed them on full sheet label paper and then cut them out. the front had the addressee and our return address was on the other end of the label that wrapped around the back of the envelope.
i also created the "circus ticket" invitation, and printed it on textured red cardstock paper and cut them out. the date and time are on each end where you'd normally see the ticket number on a real circus ticket.
a fun addition to the invitation and polaroid was the red balloon. on the back of the ticket invitation i put details about a secret password to redeem a prize at the circus party. the password is found on the balloon if you blow it up. my favorite part of the ticket [may be hard to read from the picture] is where it says "disclaimer: password may self-destruct."
so, there you have it. my little z man's birthday invitations.
now, just pray for me that the actual party will go well. i'll post pictures after the party next week!
wish me luck!
