So I started with the invites. These were so much fun. Here's the design I came up with:
I came up with the prototype pretty quickly and took a picture, texted L&S and got an almost immediate, 'yes!'
The fun part came with making all of the invites. L&S wanted to invite 40+ people and by the time we got around to deciding the date of the shower, it gave us only 3 weeks to plan so I knew that I wasn't going to be able to make all of the invites on my own. So we decided to have an invitation making party. Laura, Shannon and the other shower co-hosts, Joey and Heather came over, and together we formed a round-about assembly line to make the invites. Here's what the back of the invites wound up looking like thanks to Joey (some info blurred out for privacy):
And here's a few shots of our invitation making evening:

our collective efforts. I love that all of them are unique.
