"Egg-Celent" Invites & A Winner!

On Monday, my first son...my sweet little boy who loves all things Mario, building things and giving kisses and hugs...that tiny little guy with the big voice and even bigger eyes, that little baby who wasn't so little at birth (9lbs 5oz) but never got much bigger...is turning 5! This kid has opinions.
He is stubborn.
He gets an idea in his head and there is no room for persuasion.
He wants an Easter Egg Hunt for his birthday.
Not a Dinosaur egg hunt, not even a Yoshi egg hunt, just an Easter Egg hunt.
He doesn't care that the ground is covered in snow..."we will just hide them in the house, on the stairs, like the Easter Bunny does," he says.
Well that sounds fun doesn't it?
Six boys finding eggs on the stairs.
Awesome.
I am seriously hoping the snow is thawed by Saturday.
I needed to make invitations for this Easter Egg party, but I didn't want them to be too girly with pastel colors and the like, so I found this deranged Easter bunny paper I had in my stash from Rusty Pickle. Then I got some white card stock, and some brads.
I used my Cricut to cut some ovals for eggs, the white ones I cut at 4 inches and the bunny ones I cut at 4 1/2". You could use any die cutting machine or even scissors-and do them at any size...this is just what I did.Then I cut the bunny eggs in half.Using a paper piercer I stabbed through all three layers......and added a brad.You could print out the invite information, but since we were just inviting 5 boys, I just hand wrote out the information on the white egg.
I didn't embellish them much since it's a boy party-just each boys first initial, but if you were making these for an actual Easter egg hunt invitation, you could make them super cute and frilly with fun embellishments.
But you can see how they work here.Cute, simple and the kids think they are super cool.
All the things I strive for in a birthday party invitation! :)
Now just cross your fingers for me that Saturday will be somewhat warm, and that the snow will be at least mostly melted.

Oh yes, I need to announce a WINNER for the Becca Winslow Cuff don't I?

I also need to tell you that if you didn't win...or even if you did, and you want to get something cute for yourself or as a gift from her shop you should use this code at checkout; 2CUTE10. That little baby right there will save you 10% on your order.

Okay, and the winner is...#100! Who is number 100?
