    Ok well I should first admit that my DIY skills are awful! I searched for invitations for a long time and could not find anything that I really loved. They were all either too expensive or not what I was looking for.

    I took a trip to A.C Moore and found a print your own 25ct invitation kit on sale for $23. They were O.K but I thought maybe I can jazz it up a little!
    So i purchased hot pink cardboard paper from A.C Moore, then purchased the little starfish from Oriental Trading.com. 500 dime sized starfish for $5.99, not bad at all! Then, I took on of my fav pics of us from our trip to Jamaica to one of those Kodak photo kiosk and the picture resized to fit the invitation. And voila! My semi-diy project!

    With postage and materials for 50 invitations my grand total was around $130.
