We really like parties and birthdays at our house so a birthday party is twice the fun for us. This being the case we usually have our own ideas of what we want that we can't find at a store. So, I got Photoshop Elements from my parents for my birthday and soon after started teaching myself how to use it so that I can make our own invitations, announcements, and cards.
This is my first project-- a green eggs and ham birthday invitation for Steven's 2nd birthday. It took me over a month to learn the program, design the invitation, and help from Patrick and Cheryl to print them before we got the end result. But, it was worth it when Steven saw it and with a giggle exclaimed, "Sam!" Charlton read Green Eggs and Ham to Steven every night for at least 2 months without missing one. It's still his favorite but he has branched out a little and is also totally obsessed with The Cat And The Hat and One Fish Two Fish. He is a Dr. Seuss fanactic!
I am Two. Two I am. Do you like green eggs and ham?
Steven Mark is turning two. He is very fond of you.
Would you come and help him do the thing to do when turning two? (Charlton came up with these two lines-- aren't they great?!)
Would you like them here?
You would not like them anywhere?
