FALL Back Into Blogging

It's time to FALL back into blogging.  I owe an apology to my readers for my absence from the DIY scene.  I am dying to start DIYing again, it's just that I haven't had much time for projects between my full-time job, motherhood and being a wife.  I've also been fishing for ideas, sanity, and balance. 

With that being said my main focus these days has been planning my little lady her first real birthday party....she's turning 3!!  I can't believe how fast the time has flown by, it seems like just yesterday she was just a little tater tot ;-)

The DIYer in me kicked in and I decided to make Kennedy's invitations myself using PicMonkey and they turned out great!

Using PicMonkey I uploaded the picture of Kennedy that I wanted to use for the invitation.

 
 
Using PicMonkey I did some editing, making the photo black and white and adding a comic bubble.
 
 


Next, I started on the other half of the invitation with all of the pertinent party information.  I uploaded a white background picture and played with all of the fun fonts PicMonkey offers and came up with this....


 Then, I simply went into PicMonkey and used the collage feature and combined the two photos and voila!

I went to Wal-Mart's photo center and uploaded the photo onto a blank 4 x 8 photo invitation card that costs around $0.48 each and had them printed on matte paper and waited an hour and that was it!

Easy enough right!?
