5 years...where does the time go?

Annabelle is going to be 5 in a couple weeks...I can't believe she is almost 5. 5 years already...amazing. As first time parents, we had no idea what to do with her when she was born. Everyone just kept telling us it would get better after a few months...a few months, that seemed like a lifetime, now here we are almost 5 years later!
We are having a birthday party in a couple weeks and these are the invitations that I made. She has never had a real birthday party so the excitement builds each day. Every day she tells me how many days left until her birthday and how many days until her party (which is the day after her birthday). She is just so cute!
For the invites I used the JustRite DIY monogram stamper and a clear kids birthday set from Fiskars. I wanted to stay as simple as possible since I was making 20 of these, LOL.
I didn't have the rhinestones on my first version but I thought they were too plain so the rhinestones added the finishing touch (and an extra $0.20 per invite to mail)



Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day!
