Collins' First Birthday Invite!

The Theme: The Very Hungry Caterpillar!! 

Why?: When we found out we were pregnant, part of the gift we gave our parents was this very book with my pregnancy blog written on the inside to follow. Who would have thought it would be one of Collins' favorite books!

Making the Invites:  I truly had a lot of fun creating these from scratch. I used Avery templates for the circles and caterpillar face, scrapbook paper for the circles, pipe cleaners for the antennae, Shutterfly to print Collins' faces, tiny brads to hook the parts together, and two sided tape of course! Kuddos to Trent for helping to cut out the circles! They're made with love!

I'm so thankful that I have this blog, so that all of you can see his special invite. While we weren't able to invite everyone, we truly thank all of you for loving our sweet boy!
It's been a wonderful year!
