Dora Invitation

So, my sweet little neice Peyton's 2nd birthday is coming up next month and I volunteered to do her invitations for her party. I have done her Baby Shower Invitations, and her first birthday invitations, so I thought it only fitting to continue the tradition and do her 2nd birthday. She likes Dora, so I decided to add Dora and Boots onto the invites. However, as many of you know there is no Dora cartridge (yet! anytime PC). So, I used a combination of Paper Dolls for Everyday, Paper Doll Dress Up, and Create a Critter and my own freehand face to create them. I printed out the actual invitation on white cardstock using Word and a Text Box. Enjoy!!

Body, Hair, Shorts, Shirt, and Shoes cut @ 3.5" from Everyday Paper Dolls
Hair cut @ 3.5" from Paper Doll Dress Up
Boots cut @ 1.5" from Create A Critter
Boots boots cut @ 1" from Everyday Paper Dolls
Cardstock is Recollections and Bazill Basics
Patterned Paper is DCWV
Dora's Face I used brown and red colored pencil, a black pen, and my white gel pen

Invitation Paper Sizes are:
3.5"x4" (text box size)
4"x4.5" (patterned paper)
4.5"x5.5" (cardstock)

Your Input

Good Morning Everyone. Today I want to try and get everyone's input on something. If you had to give one tip on how you stay organized or "on schedule" with every day things, what would it be?

With a new baby, an old houes to pack up, and a new house to organize these are the things that are on my mind lately.

So, if you have a tip, any tip, that you use daily then let me know and the best ones I will post in a post another day. I look forward to all the wonderful ideas that I know all you bloggers have!!

Hey Everyone! Wow, I haven't posted in a really long time, I know. We have been really busy here with a new baby and another huge change coming to our household. We are going to be moving! We are so excited. This house was getting a little too small for us, with three kids, two adults, and two cats in less than 1200 square feet. We are going to be building a house and it should be ready the beginning of June. Yes, that soon! Plus, I will have a nice area in our new basement for all my scrap stuff, I am so excited to have a nice space all to myself!

Anyway, I still have some projects that I hope to get posted soon, as well as some that are in the works that I will hopefully also be able to get posted.

So, until I get everything posted that I want, here is a picture of me and my three little kiddoes and our new house...well, at least the basement! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
