new baby announcements

i just got done finishing up some baby announcements for precious baby cole. i gave tori three to choose from, and while i'm sure she is hard at work addressing, stamping, and mailing out the one she did pick, i figured i'd share the ones she didn't because they will be going in my etsy shop in the next couple of days along with some others. i'll post the one she did pick in the upcoming weeks. isn't he perfect?!?

oink, moo, cock-a-doodle-doo

this next invite was for the one of the cutest little boys i know, so i knew the invitations had to be just as adorable. he turned two and his mom, ashley, wanted to throw a backyard barnyard bash since he loves animals. she really outdid herself from baking an amazing barn cake with matching animal cupcakes to organizing such a fun-filled party; i think we were all impressed with her awesome par-tay throwing skills. but above all, she was such a dream to work with for trace's invite. here is the final product:

in addition to the invite, i created labels/tags for ashley put up in front of the food and drinks like this:

for an assortment of veggies and dip:

a yummy chocolate dip that everyone dipped animal crackers in:

pretzel sticks:

crunch and munch (i think):

for the drinks:

another cute idea she had was to make arrows to all the fun activities the party had to offer:

it was such a great day, and trace racked up with all his gifts! joel and i actually might have made a little scene in target bc we couldn't decided between mr. potato head and a magna potato head won because joel convinced me of all the learning possibilities mr. potato head had to offer and how trace will learn facial expressions and what not...i can't compete with him when he starts throwing out psychology terms. :)

thanks ashley for allowing me to be a part of trace's birthday! :)
