VIP invites


So, when I asked you all to visit Shaye's blog and leave a comment, a lot of you did and she was thrilled - so thanks!  Gina left a comment on her 8th birthday post suggesting VIP lanyards for the  rock star theme that Shaye was contemplating.   I read the comment and a light bulb went off!  I rushed out to WalMart and though I couldn't find lanyards, I did find ID badge holders and badge holder clips.  (less than $5 for both!)  A pack of neon card stock and a few minutes on the computer and the invites were done...

I bought some bubble wrap mailers and we are mailing them out next week.   We liked how they came out so much that we are now planning to make a SECURITY badge for Brielle, who is going to "work" the door, a STAFF one for Gianna, and a PRESS one for me- the MAMArazzi.  Fun!

FABULOUS idea! How cool is that. You are a full fledged rock star and I'm going to totally rip you off one day, when my kids figure out how cool Metallica is and want a birthday party in that vain. :) I love it.

Poppin in from SITS!
