{Invitations} Drew Rebecca's First Birthday

My baby girl's FIRST birthday is approaching quickly...AHHH! I'm not sure how it's been a whole year already, but it has and a party is in the works. I made Drew a first birthday invitation similar to her big brother's first birthday invitation. I chose to make a card that opens to display her picture on the left and the party details on the right.

My friend Karen {Karen Carpenter Photography} took Drew's first birthday pictures a few weeks ago, and I love them! I choose one of the close-ups of her sweet face for the invite. I am going to try and keep this birthday party on the simple side with girly touches like pink and lace, and also touches of burlap for a little rustic flare.

The front of the card is simple as well, with a cut-out of a burlap #1.

I usually always make wrap labels, but my little girl's birthday kind of crept up on me, and I didn't have time. No biggie....I ditched the wraps for burlap hearts and my own hand-writing. I also hand delivered the invites to my family, so addresses weren't needed.
Our little "LOVE" is almost one. Stay tuned for her birthday party details!

**I made a simple Halloween treat for my son's preschool teachers that I will share by the end of the week. Check back in soon!
**Our mini-getaway is almost here. Goodness, I can't wait! I'm anxious about leaving my babies, but so so excited to have a little time with my hubby ;-}
**Have I mentioned that I've taken up running again, and I'm feeling better than I have in a long time?! I'm running a 5 mile race this weekend...nervous and excited! It's a far cry from the miles I used to log back in my running prime, but hey, I'm closer to 40 than I am 30 these days, so I'm just proud of myself for getting back in the game so to speak ;-} Wish me luck!
