B5 likes the following things....orange, green, books, owls and Harry Potter, so I tried to incorporate those into the invite (which also goes with the theme of the shower which we can discuss later). She also likes Christian Bale, Pearl Jam and Liver Pudding but I didn't really know how to work those in.
I started by trying to 'draw' something in Microsoft Paint. I didn't really like those that much.
Then I scanned it on to my computer and saved it in the highest resolution I could. I opened it up in Picasa and added text with all the shower info. I printed it out (using the high quality photo setting) onto card stock from Michaels and trimmed them up with my paper cutter.
And here's the final product (ok I altered the text a bit).
What do you think?
Should I have used pastel colors to be more babyshowerriffic?
Have you ever made your own invitations?
Would you read 'Hedwig Flies Again' if it were a real book?
