An invite for our lil' lovebug

I hope this new year, this new decade has been treating you and yours well- Happy New Year friends! It has been quite a busy one for my family; cars breaking down, found a stray dog (trying to find a home for it), and most importantly getting ready for a VERY special day- Our sweet baby girl is getting ready to celebrate her 1st. birthday in a few weeks! In truth, that is why I have been MIA for the past couple of weeks- I've been deep in preparation for her party :). There are SO many fantastic party blogs out there and I've been in awe at so many fabulous parties that have been featured. What are some of your fav. party blogs?

One of the first task I've tackled for M's 1st. birthday party is the party invitations, of course :). Her party is going to be a ladybug theme so a cute, sweet ladybug invite was in order.
I embossed the ladybug to give it some added texture and loved what it did to the card- really took it up a notch
When you open the ladybug's wings, you see a picture of our lil' lovebug all dressed up as a lil' lady (She was a ladybug for Halloween and my friend Steph took the most fantastic pic. of M all dressed up- SO perfect for this invite!) I placed a banner across the pic. that reads, "Our sweet baby is turning into a lil' lady"

When you move the picture aside, you are then greeted by the invite. The invite reads, "Our lil' lady Makayla Grace is turning one so please come join us and have some fun....Hope to spot you there"...All of the other party details are included as well.
And lastly to finish it all off, I created a cute address label wrap with some matching return labels. This is the backside of the wrap on the envelope.

All of the invitations have been sent off, so now it's time to concentrate on all of the other fun details of the party. I can't wait to share them with you all!
