Today is my son's 6th birthday. We are currently on vacation in Taos, New Mexico visiting my family.
I started designing these Lego birthday party invitations several weeks ago. The photo of K was taken last June at Legoland in Carlsbad, CA. His tongue is sticking out...that's a common sight. This kid is not a Disney kid. He has no desire to go to Disneyland, but if he had a say, we would be at Legoland a few times a year.
I wanted to enter this invitation in the Hero Arts Photo Challenge, but I couldn't complete this invitation on time. Cutting out his name was also the first project I attempted with my QuicKutz Silhouette (not smart of my part...there was a bit of a learning curve). These letters are tiny (less and .5 inches high). I downloaded a free Lego font from here. The Silhouette can cut any font on your computer, so it worked out great.
I also used the Lego font on the photo and for the text of the invitation.
The hard part was assembling the 4 layers for each of the small letters.
