Okay, it's about a week later and since I've gotten a few PM's about instructions, I'm going to add it to this this post... Please bear with me if I'm not making sense... I had a root canal done on Thursday and I'm totally hopped up on Vicadin (so much more fun than wine!)
Okay, so it all started with a dream... just kidding. It actually started because I wasn't happy with any invitations that I found online or at stores. Nothing said 'me'. I was always planning on using the same lady who did my STD's because she was great and very reasonably priced. Here are the STD's if anyone is interested.

If I haven't covered something or if anyone else has any ?'s, please feel free to PMme!
And here is the bottle of wine that I drank while doing them! Hopefully none of them got glued upside down!!
