90, 80, 70 60 - Happy Birthday

Over Labor Day, I went back to Iowa for a big birthday celebration. My mom planned her own party so it would be just perfect. My Great Aunt turned 90 on Sept 2, my Great Uncle turned 80 on Aug 31, my mom turned 70 on Sept 4, and my cousin (son to my Great Aunt) turned 60 on Sept 2. The party was great. I haven't seen my aunt smile like that for many years. Mom had everything color coordinated - blue for the Sept birthdays and green for the Aug birthday. So I followed suite as well.

I had this idea but was going to cut the numbers out with my cricut and put the numbers back in the cut spots. I tried and tried but couldn't get them to line up properly. So plan 2 had to come to be. My uncle got tears in his eyes when my mom told him I made the cards myself. He thanked me and told me the cards were awesome. He didn't know I made handmade cards.

Of course I took the photo booth props.
