My god daughter has turned one year old! It is hard to believe it. That time flew by! I looked at many blogs and websites to research Minnie Mouse parties and came up with a multitude I liked. I was able to find a cake that both her mom and I liked, as well as free downloads that others openly shared. As a result, we celebrated last night with family, decked out with Minnie!
I first started with an invitation. I used a free printable and SVG file from Sherry K. Designs (see the file) and cut the head and bow out. I layered it on top of a black card base, pink paper, and fuschia polkadot paper. The personalized label came from The Cutting Cafe and is called the Baby Girl First Birthday Colored Tags/Toppers. The inside invite page is from Catch My Party and was also a free set.
