Turtle Invitation -Turtle Fun birthday invitation

Turtle Fun birthday invitation is the brand new design for today. The colors can be changed and it can be worded for any age birthday. Turtle fun for boy's or a girl's birthday. You can see the design at
Below is a new design with a sea turtle invitation too. The name of the below design is Sea Turtle Fun

When I was little, about 9 years old, my cousin Valerie and I had a turtle club. We had matching turtle rings and made up turtle club member cards. There was a place in Arnonld's Park, Iowa called the Curio Castle where we would often ride our bikes on summer afternoons. The Curio Castle had a museum in the back with a huge sea turtle that was real but stuffed on display. It was over 6 feet long.  It was cool to go and look at it.

We also would find live turtles on the lakes of Okaboji that we would catch and hold. My favorite were the painted turtles. If we were really quiet we could catch one sunning himself on the rocks.

 Above are the matching 2 inch party circles to be used for flapper girl cupcake toppers, gift tags, party favor tags or straw toppers. Available for $7.50 with your name added to the design and a printable file e-mailed to you.

I was so busy making this design and my daughter kept asking me if I was done yet. So I stopped working on this and remembered my real focus. To work at home to be near my children. My children are the real driving force behind this business. So I can be there for the and watch them grow up. When I took a break, we went into the kitchen for a snack. I watched in amazement as my 6yr old, for the first time, made a recipe for flat bread dough all on her own. She said, "Mom, don't help me. I know how to do it." And she did.  I was only needed to cook them on the hot skillet and she did everything else. I would have missed this if I had been away at some office working. I am so thankful for being able to work near my children so I don't miss their accomplishments. Thank you to everyone for looking at my designs and please share my website with everyone you know who is planning a party!

Best Wishes,

PS. this is the other design with the Roaring 20's theme. Which one do you like best?

Bee and Sunflower Baby Shower Invitation

We were out walking the other day in Colorado Springs when my girls spotted the most beautiful wild sunflower growing next to a fence. I snapped a photo and that flower is now the inspiration for this Bee and Sunflower Baby Shower invitation design. I wanted to get a photo with the girls standing by the sunflowers but the bees were also enjoying the sunflowers and I didn't want them to get stung. You can change the wording to bee anything that you like :)
