Amy's Family Birthday Invitation

We celebrated Amy's 12th Birthday with our family this past weekend and this was the invitation that I made for her party.

I bought this stamp a year ago for this party because it was absolutely perfect for this year's theme. Amy collects elephants and her 12th birthday party theme was decided years ago that it was going to be a fish fry.

Why a fish fry? Well, when Amy was 4 years old, her Uncle Jason tried to get her to try pickerel. Amy has always been a picky eater and she refused. He kept bugging her and to get him to stop, she told him that she would try it when she was 12.

So, he let it go, but always reminded her that when she was 12 that she was going to have to try pickerel. They have bugged each other about this fish thing for 8 years. Amy kept up her end of the deal and tried Uncle Jason's deep fried pickerel on Sunday and she is her mother's daughter and doesn't like pickerel.

It was a great party and we had a blast planning it.

I used BoBunny Double Dot Paper and BoBunny Sophie Two Sided Patterned Paper, Rachelle Anne stamp, Stamping Bella Baubles and Labels One Nestability Die Cuts.

For Copic Markers I used: Elephant - W0, W2, W3 & W5; Water - W2 & B01; Fishing Rod & Bucket - R85 & RV19; Stones - E47

The invitation was flat with Amy's Birthday Wish List on the other side. I normally stick magnets on the other side so that our family can stick the invitation on their fridge as a reminder, but the invitations got out later than usual this year so I didn't do that part.
