November 3 - Baby Shower Invitations

I'm going to be an aunt! :)
My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are having a baby girl, which means I got to make 30 baby shower invitations this past week (FUN!)

I tried to make the design pretty simple due to the fact that I had to make so many of them, but I really do love how they turned out. And here are the instructions just in case you would want to make something similar someday.

And GREAT NEWS! You can now order all of the great Stampin' Up! stuff you see featured on my blog through my website here: http://hollyvandyne.stampinup.net. Just put your mouse over "Stampin' Up! Products" in the menu and select the SHOP NOW link. If you list me as your hostess to order you'll actually save on shipping, etc! :)
