Word Of The Week

6 Feb

Week 6: 1st February – 7th February 2015

It’s Word of the Week time and this week my word is Baby.

I’ve been mostly concentrating this week on my friends Baby Shower.

I can’t wait !
It’s a surprise – so I can’t reveal all I’ve been up to but I can share the invites as L has now seen these.

The theme for the baby shower is build a library.

So off I went with the computer and made some invites based on a book.

One of Mummy to be, L’s favourite childhood book series was “Topsy & Tim” written by Jean & Gareth Adamson, so when it came to the front cover and I found the series did a book called “The Big Surprise” it was my obvious choice for a front cover.
I change the authors on the front cover to my friend & her partners name.

Next I made little old fashioned library borrowing cards to tuck in the front cover.
I used these as the main invite. Adding the Author as my friend and her partner, the date, time, place etc.

My first page of course had to start with the classic opening line “Once Upon A Time..”

Followed by a little introduction invitation.
It has been requested that guests bring a book rather than a card, which will build a lovely little collection for the baby and memories for years to come.

Finally the back cover has a map and directions. The invites were then sewn to bind them.

I’ve obviously been planning other little bits and bobs based on the library theme which I will share with you after the event.

I look forward to reading about your week.
