party time

our son turns two in january, and i am trying to beat the rush and get his invitations made now. i had planned to use some kind of printable cards, but shopping time is scarce these days. i also haven't found any websites that sell what i was looking for at an affordable price.

i want my kids to have cute themed parties, but our budget doesn't allow a lot of money for that. so, i usually hit the dollar store around party time, and try to supplement with things from there. (careful, though, on plates - i bought some once and they were so thin, they were useless!) last year, i found his invites there, and they were so cute! this year - not so much luck. i did grab 2 packs of these generic ones, just in case. and the more i looked at them, the more i realized they had potential.

i printed off some wallet size photos of aj, and cropped the corners. i backed them with some yellow cardstock, and glued them inside the invite. better, but i still wanted more. so tonight, i hit walmart looking for stickers. i was thinking jungle animals, but then i found these car stickers and they just happened to have the number 2 on the side of the car! only 44 cents a sheet, and each one had 5 cars. so for under $5, i made all the invites i needed. and i think they turned out pretty cute! now i just need to design the cake...
