I just listed a new Giraffe Baby Shower kit in my shop at Erin Leigh Designs. It was inspired my sister-in-law's upcoming baby shower. The baby's room will be decorated with a giraffe theme. Click here to go to the listing.

This is the perfect all-in-one, Boy Baby Shower kit for throwing a baby shower. Includes a soft shade of baby blue with browns and yellow for the giraffe theme. The kit includes:

1. 20 invitations, customized with your information
2. 20 Envelopes
3. 20 Cupcake Toppers
4. 20 Water bottle labels
5. 30 Mini-Candy Bar wrapper labels

Below is a preview of the adorable giraffe kit.

I'm also going to offer two fondant giraffes (baby and mom) for cake decorating for $20. They match the invitation kit perfectly. Pictures shown below. Enjoy :)

On Sunday, I took photos of my sister and her boyfriend Matt. We went to Downtown Lenexa by the train tracks and few old buildings. My favorite part was when a cyclist went by and yells out, "Congrats on the Engagement". I just laughed while Matt asks what? I said oh nothing. So here a few pictures of the day! Enjoy!

Isn't my sister so photogenic?

I think during this pose/shot, they started yelling at me to hurry up because a train was coming. I thought they were joking. Nope they weren't, a train really was coming. At least we got a few good pictures before hand.

One of my newest hobbies is photography. I have been following the Savvy Photography blog for awhile. Today they are having a giveaway and a free Photoshop Action from Addy Lane. Check it out here.


Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
 
Check out my newest design that is in my shop. This Black and Pink polka dot invitation is very modern and classy. I love the swirl shape surrounding the monogram. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but I love it. I especially like how I used the same swirl shape as the check boxes for the Response card. I hope others love it too.

I have some very exciting news! After talking and thinking about starting an Etsy shop for a year now, I finally took the leap. After designing my own wedding invitations, I realized how much I enjoyed it. So I started Erin Leigh Designs.. a custom invitation business. I am still working on adding new designs to my shop. I also take custom orders. So if there is something you want to see, I can design it for your. Please check it out here. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Please let all your friends and families know about my new business. I do invitations of all types..not just weddings. Coming soon are baby shower invites, bridesmaid cards, bachelorette and bridal shower invites, and much more. Check back soon! Enjoy!
