Really sweet party! You had me at "Pokey Little puppy!" That was one of my faves as a kid!

Thanks girl! Looking forward to seeing what you do next!

Quick question! Where would I find those invitations? I would love if they were a printable like the favor boxes and report card recipe cards! =D

Mama Bat, I have had a lot of interest in those invitations and they were custom made for this shower. But I decided to make up a couple of new ones for a boy and girl as a free printable for personal use, so check out my new post!

Mama Bat said...

Thanks so much! You have saved my best friend and me (I refuse to let her pay for my entire shower!) a ton of cash! YAY! =D

Please tell me where you found the picture of the girl with the leaves in the frame for "gifts"... I recognize it but can't find it anywhere! thanks!

You know, to be honest I didn't save all of my resources. It was a vintage book but I can't remember which one. It might even be a good idea to ask your local librarian (as I did mine) if they have any good vintage books, and Golden Books. If you have access to a scanner, the sky is the limit!

Sorry I can't provide a more definitive answer.

I know this is an old post. I hope you can see this message. I went to the page for the milk carton printable but it says the file is not available. Would you by any chance still have that printable downloaded on your computer? If so, would you be able to send it to me? I would really appreciate it if you can. Thanks!!!
