Moo, Baa, la la la

So, my little one is turning one next month. I can hardly believe it. The old cliche "they grow up so fast" really is true. It's almost sad. She is amazing and we love her so much.

I decided on a Farm birthday theme for a couple of reasons. First, she was a duck for halloween, she loves looking at ducks in our backyard, and my girlfriend, Diana, has been called upon to bake a 3D ducky cake. Second, I thought a "ducky" themed birthday party was too narrow in scope. Lastly, I love this set from A*Muse Art Stamps.

I know, I know. I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I should only use their products. But, I couldn't resist this set!

I made about 20 invitations for her birthday party. Happy Birthday!
