Owl Birthday Party

Earlier this month I shared with you the invitation I designed for Esper's 2nd Birthday. I thought I'd share with you how everything else turned out for her fabulous owl birthday party. (My camera was having serious issues so I'm lucky any photos turned out.) The plan was to design a lot of decorations in MDS but since our color printer was broken, that was out. So a lot of it is just good ol' fashioned paper crafting. But I did design one thing in MDS that you will see below.

Esper opened this owl puppet present and was done opening presents. She wanted to get down and play with it.

Owl nests- no bake cookies with jelly beans as eggs.
We were all still eating dinner when she snuck a cupcake off the table. She looked at me to make sure she wasn't in trouble. hehe

My niece Addison wearing her owl mask. I got the pattern here and used it to cut the masks from felt. My mom then sewed elastic on to them.

I used a package of doilies, antique brads, and some die cut letters to make this banner.

Oooooh Dora cell phone!
Here's what I designed the night before in My Digital Studio. I had it printed as an 8"x10" at a one-hour photo lab. I used many words to capture her personality and the things she likes at this age in her life. It will look great in her room and then I'll put it in her scrapbook next year when I make one for age 3.
It was a beautiful evening.
