So, my son is turning 10

and I wanted to do something special for his invite. One year I wrote in chalk on the driveway, posed him near it and took a photo. I sent that to all as the invite. It was a big hit.

Now, what to do for 10? I mean that's a big birthday, right...double digits!! ;) I had the great idea to take his picture holding up 10 fingers but what else???

Then my friend Libby showed me an invite she made for a friend and I knew that was it. She is such a talented digital designer with her own line and everything. So all I did was send her a photo give the particulars and voila....she created this masterpiece....



We went with the American theme as his birthday is May 30th. I *LOVE* it!!

So, if you are looking to do something creative for your next invite go see Libby ...
