"Books for baby" shower invitation

I want to share this cute little party suite I helped a friend with for a "books for baby" baby shower she's throwing:
It's complete with a sticker bookplate for guests to write a note to the baby, a bookmark party favor and an invitation with matching bookplate return address label.  Personal information has been modified for privacy.

In other news, the responses to yesterday's post about the idea for the Mr. Slim Goodbody costume sent me over the edge with major motivation to see this project through. You'll be pleased to know that I have ordered an XL unitard in NUDE to get this party started.

OH MY WORD.
First, you couldn't catch me dead in a unitard. [The word is horrible in itself.]
Second, I am going to have to hide this idea from my husband who went a few years ago as holy [crap] complete with toilet paper.
Third, your high school anatomy teacher will be proud.

That picture of the unitard ad will be seared in my brain forever. Thanks, Lelan! ; )

p.s. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Books for baby goodies--adorable. Flesh-colored bodysuit--terrifying. I don't even want to see my body in a black bodysuit, but a nude one would seriously give me the vapors. Takes a brave soul to don that sucka!

Don't know if I feel the same about a grown man in a 'nude' unitard!?!?

Lelan @ Good Gravy! said...

And thanks everyone for your kind words about the invitation...and an even greater laugh about what lies ahead in my husband wearing a nude colored unitard!! Ha!
