She took the photos and gave them some pop art pizazz. If you haven't seen this site, be sure to check it out. It is very easy to use and FREE!
Okay, drum roll please. This is how what the photos looked like:
Just kidding! Were you scared? Okay for real this time - this is what the front of the invite looked like:
The back had all the details and we used a little bling with some self stick gems in the middle of all the stars.
Watch for the photos and details from the bridal shower.
