Classic Pooh nvitations

Well, I spent my day putting together Classic Pooh invitations for the shower. I'm sure you are sitting there going, "With only 2 weeks to do this thing why on earth would you hand make 23 invitations?" I have to say I searched high and low for Classic Pooh invitations. There are about 30,000 different variations of Winnie the Pooh out there and my SIL has chosen Classic for her nursery. There are, however, no Classic Pooh invitations to be found. Anywhere. So, I decided to make them...back before I knew I only had 2 weeks to pull this thing together. Fun, fun. Anyhow, here is my first attempt.

Not bad, but very bland. No color at all. So, I spiced it up with some scrapbook paper. I desperately did not want to take the kids to the store today, but I didn't have enough of any one paper to make all the invites, so we ended up with lots of different ones, scraping together all the supplies I had on hand. I think they turned out cute, and, more importantly, they went into the mail today! Yay!

This one is my fave. I wish I could have done them all like this. I think it's super cute.

I must mention just how bad I am at tying bows. Man, oh man, I am rotten at it...it was not fun tying a bunch of teeny tiny little bows...not fun at all, but it was worth it in the end. The little bows do ooze cuteness, and I am all about cuteness :)
