Cupcake Dream Review & Giveaway

There is so much planning, and purchasing, and preparing that goes into a party
especially a 1st Birthday Party!

I know, I know it may seem a bit early to be planning Emmaline's party since its not until
Sept 3rd, but... I want it to be wonderful, and I also cannot stand stressing out at the last moment.
Therefore, I want as much of it done as early as possible, that way I get to enjoy the summer to its fullest.

One of the most important parts of the party {in my opinion} is the invitation... its sets the tone for the party. I think it needs to be a creative eye catching design, but also kept simple. 

So when I found 

I was so excited, I loved the creative designs she had for her invitations. I quickly found just the one that was a perfect match for Emmaline's Party. 

Tiffany {the owner/artist behind the designs} was a pleasure to work with, she made everything so easy.. She needed the party info, and in no time at all had the proof ready for me to review.

Don't worry not much family follows my blog so this will still be a surprise!

Once I checked over everything, she presented me with the final design, ready to be uploaded and printed through whatever print site I chose to use.

This Custom made invitation was exactly what I was looking for, Not only is it perfect, and matches our colors and themes perfectly but, It was much easier having someone else do it then spending hours on the computer coming up with it myself.. and I can tell you if I tried it would have looked nothing like this.. God wanted me to be a nurse, NOT an artist :)
