This weekend I had the privilege of hosting a baby shower celebrating the arrival of my dear friends sweet new baby girl. It takes lots of planning to successfully host a party, and for me it all started with the invitation.
I started with a blank piece of high quality card stock and wondered around Michael's looking for a piece of craft paper that spoke to me and the ocean theme I was planning. Found a fishy one I liked and scanned it onto my computer. Next, I added some clip art, and then got some help from my husband using Pixelmator and Swift Publisher 3 apps on his Mac to use the scanned image to create a border, and then change the color so that one of the background fish was pink. A few finishing touches (including false eyelashes from my makeup bag) and voila! A simple, but totally unique Baby Shower Invitation.
