As I said in my previous post, my oldest daughter, Kaylee, just turned 8! This is a big birthday in our family. In our faith (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or Mormon) when our children turn eight years old they are baptized. You can read about LDS baptism here if you would like. It is such a special event no matter how old you are when you are baptized! (I was 22. Maybe that will be a post for another day!) We really wanted to make Kaylee's baptism special & a day that she will cherish & remember forever. I decided that I wanted to send out invitations to her baptism. At first I thought I would just do a digital version that I could email out. But I am still a little old fashioned I guess & I like sending & receiving cards & thank you notes in the mail, regardless of the high cost of postage these days! So I still made one in my digital program but then had them printed up at Costco with their new signature greeting card option. I was pleasantly surprised with how great the quality was & I loved how they turned out:
We had taken Kaylee to the temple one afternoon to take some pictures to use for her invitations & I'm so glad we did. I'm no professional photographer, but I think the picture still turned out nice. Then she picked aqua as an accent color for her baptism. Oh yes, we of course needed an accent color for her baptism! I made the invitation very simple & then on the back I typed up the address for the church, the address for our house where the dinner would be after the baptism & I also added the RSVP info. I love those digital doily stamps too & they kind of became a theme for her baptism dinner. I'll have to post pics of that too.
