Here's the Buzz: Busy Bee & Friends Invite

You may have noticed that the past few posts have had a general theme running through them. Bees. My little boy has had a thing for bees ever since clapping eyes on The Hive - particularly Buzzbee. So it was only natch that I themed his second birthday around bees. Yes. Sigh. My baby is a baby no longer (Not sure how long it will really take to get that concept gelled in my head).

I designed the invites, and then when his cousin also had a bee themed party, decided that I had better change the design at short notice, since quite a few of the design elements were the same. (I don't know what is going on with my camera, but every now and then it makes the corner of the photographs shadowed.)

And this is what I did with my happy little friends from yesterday's post. I don't have a scanner of my own (sad, I know), so my hubby was wonderful enough to go and do it for me. :)

The envelopes were simple: I just grabbed white envelopes (note to self - find envelopes to fit BEFORE you make the invites - I had trouble finding ones the right size, and ended up having to use regular business envelopes), and then embellished them with some honeycomb paper that hubby designed for me. It pays to have an IT guru in the house! ;) I cut it out in random patterns and glued it on with a glue stick. Yes, I realise that I could have probably printed it on the envelope, but I kinda liked it better this way.

 Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I'm hoping to be back next week with some more party goodies (and an down loadable page of the honeycomb!)

Flying away now!
