In my last post I mentioned that I needed some inspiration for my #2 daughter's second birthday. The kid is completely obsessed with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. She loves the song, walks around singing, reads books that are all about the song, talks about it constantly. When I say obsessed I mean obsessed.

Her little obsession of course gave me the perfect out for having to think up a birthday party theme for her. She's just having a family birthday but its still fun to do up invitations so that she will have memories when she's older of what she did on her birthdays. So we went with a Star theme:

Originally I was thinking of doing something a little bit more "twinkly" but I saw this american crafts paper and though it was perfect. Lots of girly colours, but not too crazy girly, and light and fun. I decided not to go the stamp route. I have a few star stamps but I'm not overly fond of any of them. So I went with the cricut. I cut the star, #2 and the You're Invited with my handy dandy little machine that rarely gets used.
The inside of course was my downfall. I could not find anyway to come up with a cute little rhyme that incorporated Twinkle, Star and Two. So she gets a boring little poem inside inviting people to her birthday.
I'm pretty happy with the way the card turned out. Oh and apparently I have found a pretty good spot to take pictures in my house. I know its taken for freaking ever, but I found it. My dining room between 1 and 2 pm has awesome sunlight. I think the picture turned out pretty good (better then all my other ones anyway)
