Little Miss Avery was born one year ago today! She came into the world on Mother’s Day last year. I can’t believe how fast time flies. Avery’s Mom is my dear friend, Julie. If I had a twin sister, it would be Julie. I need to dedicate a whole blog post to that another time though. Today is Avery’s day!

I had the pleasure of doing Avery’s first birthday invitation! It is the most adorable thing I have ever seen. I can say that, right? To be honest, I think it’s the photographs that make this birthday invitation so cute! These beautiful photographs were taken by Jennifer Cordero Photography . Jennifer is a super talented photographer. I can’t wait to work with her on some future projects I have coming up! This won’t be the last time you will see her featured on my blog. That’s for sure! You won’t even believe where Jennifer took these photos. Oh, don’t look at me!? I’m not telling!

Julie selected a 4.5″ by 5″ accordion fold birthday invitation. We had these press printed on pearl cardstock. They are so shimmery and beautiful. I’ll let you see for yourself.

Aren’t they adorable? Wait, there’s more!!!

And a few more. . .

You want to see the back too, right?

I couldn’t resist making some matching Scrabble tiles too. I thought Julie could wear them to Avery’s party or give them to Avery’s Grandmas to proudly display.

Avery’s party will be later this week and I have a lot more exciting things to post. I collaborated with another Etsy seller, who shall remain nameless until later, to make something extra special for Avery’s birthday party! I’m so excited to show you, I can hardly stand it!!! You will have to wait though and check back later in the week. Let’s just say this item will be perfect on the dessert table!


P.S. Can you guess which photos I took with my new Mother’s Day present???
