Aloha! - Life is a beach with H2H challenges

Oh my, how on earth did the admin at Heart 2 Heart Challenges know that this weekend is my daughters Luau themed birthday party? It works perfectly with this weeks H2H challenge of Life is a beach!

Some of the decor I made is cupcake toppers, a banner, thank you cards and the invitations. I had so much more I wanted to make but me and my girls were out enjoying the nice weather that we just ran out of time and really, do 8 year old kids look at the decorations or are they more into the fun with their friends, the cake (or cupcakes), and games! 

All cardstock was Close to my heart but for the sake of time, I did a lot of the design in my Silhouette Cameo and just printed it off rather than cut it out. The invitations were all hand cut and assembled, but the rest was print offs as I just ran out of time due to enjoying the summer and being outside!

The following two are the digital mock ups I did and printed out on White Daisy yardstick and placed on Cotton Candy for the invite and Sunset for the Thank you card.
