Birds and Squirrel and Butterfly, Oh My!

We are entering Birthday Season here in the Creative Compulsive household!  We have 3 out 4 birthdays with in a month of each other.  Baby Girl has the first birthday of the season.  For her fifth birthday she has requested a bird, squirrel, butterfly party......with all of her friends from school.  

I've been working on her invitation for about a week now.  Our scanner is currently only scanning in black and white, so I thought I would have a little fun making vector graphics look like cutout paper.  I thought, perhaps, I might talk her into just one animal.  So I started with the birds.  Being the generally agreeable child she is, she loved the birds.  But after a few days I got to thinking that a squirrel really would be cute on the trunk of the tree....

so I added a squirrel.  Baby Girl was very excited about the squirrel!  I showed the invitation to Bouncing Boy, who insisted that I really should go ahead and add a butterfly...perhaps a butterfly and a flower....

so I added a butterfly and a flower.  So now we have it all, 5 birds for a fifth birthday, a squirrel, a butterfly, and some bonus flowers!  My Italian still needs to be proofread, and I think I will add our phone number...but it's close, very close, to being printed....except for the fact I am out of printer ink!  


  1. An invitation as fun to get as to give, setting the tone for a great birthday.

  2. Thanks, Donna! Of course,if your 5 any party with cake is a great party!

  3. Ah-mazing! Can you teach me to do this?
