Cars Birthday Party Invitations

I can't believe my little man is going to be 2!

This year Wesley's birthday party is going to be super simple.
Partially because he's only 2 and won't know the difference but mostly because we are moving the week after his party!
Since Wesley loves Lightening McQueen and Mater we decided to have a Cars party.
And since the second movie is currently in the theaters it made finding Cars themed accessories so easy (bonus!!)!

Even though Target had some cute fill in the blank Cars invitations I opted to make my own invitations instead.
There's just something about personalized invitations that seem extra special.
Plus these were so easy to make I'm pretty sure they took me less time then it would have taken me to fill out the other kind of invites by hand.

I was able to buy some Cars themed Chipboard pieces in a pack from Michaels (in the scrapbooking section)

along with this piece of scrapbook paper which I used to spell out "Wes is 2".
Then all I had to do was type up the party details in Word, print, cut and glue everything to a piece of red card stock and voila....
a cute "master" invitation for my little man.

Then I took my "master" invitation down to Staples and had them make color copies of it for me to send out.
Easy peasy.
