12 love is sweet and so is winning!


My mom and I are throwing a bridal shower for my cousin next weekend back in Michigan.  I volunteered to be in charge of the invitations.  I wanted the shower to have a theme, and after seeing a cute red and aqua wedding shoot (which I'd link to if I could find it again) held in a candy store recently, I thought the theme "Love is Sweet" would be a fun!  The red, white, and aqua will also be pretty festive without being overly patriotic since it's going to be held on Memorial Day weekend.  Here are the invitations I designed and printed for the shower.
I cut the envelope liners out of aqua polka dotted paper from PaperSource, which is where the envelopes are from as well.  The actual invitation is printed on white cardstock and attached to red metallic cardstock from the same store.

The fonts I used are both free fonts, Candy Randy for the blue letters and Honey Script for the red.
They came together pretty quickly, it only took me one night to print and assemble them all!  

I've got a plan in the works for a dessert bar at the shower, so I've been trying to channel my inner Amy Atlas.  I think I know what I'm going to make, now I just have to go on a baking spree next week to have it all ready in time!  I also have to make the decorations, which I don't think will be too difficult!  Hopefully the "Love is Sweet" theme won't be too cheesy and my cousin will like it!!

Oh yes, and now onto other important sweetness.  The giveaway winner is...
