Isabella's 2nd Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party!!

We celebrated Isabella's 2nd Birthday Party on Saturday, August 11th, 2012. I was going to keep it simple this year, but it did not end up as simple as I wanted it. I designed my own invitation and created all the labels, and water bottle labels, and made my own signature frame. I will try to add best of my ability what I did make/use/buy.

You can now buy the Strawberry Party Printables in my Etsy Shop! http://www.etsy.com/shop/JJRDesigns

 I MADE CHUNKY NECKLACES IN MY STORE TO MATCH THEME!


Invitation was made with Microsoft Publisher. I bought a digital scrapbook kit with the Strawberry Shortcake graphics, and made my own design. Printed them at Costco.

The labels were also from Publisher. I used the same template I had last year for her OWL birthday party, and changed the graphics and text some. I used regular scrapbook punches, and already had misc. ribbon at home to use.
