Monster Party

After the excitement of Christmas & New Year, I always feel a bit down when normality resumes so I kept myself busy making 50 invitations for Owen's upcoming 5th Birthday....


The inserts....


& to keep one step ahead I've also made the thank you cards....

Recipe: Images, Sentiments & Background - Hero Arts; Papertrey Ink / Tools - EK Success Punches; Spellbinder Nestabilities / Other - Vellum


We've just returned from a week in Tenerife, it was so nice to feel the sun on my skin again!  It's been lovely having Hubby around the last 4 weeks but I am so ready for him to return to work Monday lol x

Oh my goodness Steph those invites are fantastic and my god you did 50of them and matching Thank you cards too....you are incredible!!!! They are absolutely fantastic and I'm sure his little friends will think so too....you're the best!!! Gorgeous pic of you and Jasmine....very sweet! We're not off to Florida this year boohoo....we're going to Australia instead.....hubby's family live there so we have to travel there which I hate as the flight is soooo long....it's horrendous, especially with 2 little ones! Florida flight is much more bearable :) Happy New Year to you sweetie, big hugs xx

I love your invites Steph. You always do mass production so well and with such attention to detail. I can imagine the time you put in. I have a 7th birthday coming up, and I'd love to do something similar, but don't think I have your dedication!

Lisa said...

Wow Steph these are fab! Glad you had a lovely holiday even if the kids thought it was rubbish lol!

Oops! Hope hubby doesn't read this post (he he)! Do you think I could come instead of Jasmine next time - I could crouch down small.... Great invites too - hope the party goes with a swing. You are so good at multi-crafting - they all look perfect.

Michelle said...

Hi Stephanie
Your invites are so cute I love the colour combination you have used.
I had a lovely Christmas Thankyou I hope you did too.
I hope we are going to see lots more creations from you Hun as I have missed you. X

scrappyjacky said...

You are just so organised, Steph....and brave too....50 kids at a party!!!! Gorgeous invites.
The holiday sounds wonderfully relaxing [not to mention warm]...I s'pose the kids are so used to all the action at Disneyworld that it seemed a bit dull to them. Maybe you need to take some more beach holidays so that they can see how much fun they can be. Bury dad in the sand anybody??

Katiejane said...

I love your chosen colours for Owen's invites Steph! You sure know how to keep yourself busy!
Lovely photo of you both soaking up the rays (so jealous lol!).
There's only so much Mickey Mouse you can take right? ;)
Have a great week (without hubby!) :)

Love the invites and thank you cards.
If you think your kids are bad now give them a few more years and they will be telling you exactly where they will and will not be going lol. You got to love them though eh.
