{ Abby Found Her Prince }

My Friend Abby is getting married.  Naturally, I offered to help with took over the invitations for her Bachelorette Party/Personal Shower.

I used 'Front Porch' from Pink Paislee's Bayberry Cottage line as my inspiration.  From there, I decided on the froggie from the Sweethearts (SH) Cricut cart because he's a frog/prince and Abby {hearts} frogs.  Here's what I came up with:

The frog and crown are from the SH cart, the little heart is a punch, and the sentiment is computer-generated.

At the last minute, I decided to make some coordinating sour cream containers for the party.  I used THIS tutorial from  They were SO easy and cute!  Although, I clearly need to work on my crimping.

Next, I decided to do a Freezer Paper T-shirt and coordinating flip flops:

I used SH for "The Bride" and the Freezer Paper t-shirt instructions are available on my downloads page (in the right sidebar).  The t-shirt and flip flops were on sale at Michael's.  The pic of the t-shirt didn't turn out particularly well...the color is prettier IRL.

Finally, I used SH again for the tag on the gift bags. I cut the tag on black cardstock and adhered a piece of the 'Front Porch' pp behind it.  I think they turned out pretty cute!  I tied some jute and a couple of the ribbons from the flip flops onto one of the bag handles:

Including a 1-hour trip to Michael's, driving time to and from Michael's, hand washing and drying the t-shirt, creating all of these items (with the exception of the invitation) took me a total of 5 hours.  And I showered and put on my face in that time.  My point is everything came together pretty quickly!!

Have a good evening!
