Here are some highlights! We had a blast! http://pinterest.com/jamilie/owl-party-ideas/

The letters were done with STORYBOOK. I played with the size until I found one I liked. I used good scrapbook paper for these, picked them out first before I started. I pop dotted the white blackout letter and the letter on top.. You can also find the owls in my Etsy store or might have to do a CONVO and I will create a custom order for you.

I used the digital scrapbook kit to create the cupcake toppers, and the signs, and invitations.. I got them printed at Office Depot, and cut them out. I cut out most cupcake toppers with the Cricut so I can mass cut a whole 12x12 sheet at once, but a hand punch would suffice also, just a lot more work.
For the invitations I used Microsoft Publisher. The digital Scrapbook Kit I bought had all the graphics and papers used.
