    YES! I can't believe it, I've finally finished the invitations. We just need a few final touches like address labels for the boxes, and a few invitations that need to be done... but that's it.

    I have to thank Jessalyn for her help and for showing her amazing invitations as my inspiration. You're awesome, and my invitations wouldn't look nearly as good without you. I'm super happy about the way they turned out!

    Originally I wanted blue mulberry paper, but it was really hard to find in the colour I liked. I managed to find this Blue Iris paper in a local art store in Calgary called Mona Lisa Art Supplies. The pictures don't seem to do it justice. I really love the way they turned out.

    Anyways... time for pictures!!!!

    This is what it looks like when you open the box. The starfish is tied to the invite with twine. We were going to do blue ribbon, but the only ribbon I liked would have been about $50 extra... so we nixed it for the twine!! lol

    And this is what it looks like once you open it up. It's a trifold pocket invitation, so I have four inserts (two per side) and the center one is the actual invite. It's backed by burlap and has twine around the top with the sand dollar.

            Oh ok, I never thought to bring one, I'll add that to the list. I planned on mailing one to you.... do you want me to mail it now with all the others, or once it gets closer to the wedding?

                    Awesome! And, can I just say you are rockin' that schedule! When do you plan on mailing them out? You are getting married 2 months before me and I have done NOTHING.
