Anything Goes - Baby Shower Invites

I am saddened to say that this will be the last Krafty Girls Challenge for the summer :(  Jennifer and I are going to grad school full time and we are returning to work soon, so that sadly means that we will have much less time to have fun and craft!  But we will still be around and craft as often as we can.

This week it is a super easy and fun favorite, anything goes!  Plus, we are giving away a cute prize for the top project for this week.

This week my mother-in-law (Fran) and I got together to make some invitations for my sister-in-law's baby shower.  I showed Fran some ideas and she liked this the best:
 She was hands on the whole time!  We had a lot of fun crafting together.  Guess what? She even picked up a card making magazine recently and has been eyeing some craftrooms.  She will even be taking some scrappy classes from me and she is going to learn how to use her Cricut:)
 Funny side story...someone mentioned the term "vintage baby" and I told Fran about how we can "vintage" these invites.  She was all for it.  Well..we had to ink every single element of these invites, plus we had a couple of inserts that we were sending out as well that needed to be inked.   Fran will NEVER look at ink the same way!  All in all, we had a great time and she was so proud that she made these.  I have to give her credit, she did tons of the work and was never intimidated by it all.  She is a natural crafter I think.

So now please stop on by and check out everyone's projects at Krafty Girls!
