Modern Pokemon Party

modern-pokemon-party_invitationI tried my best to honor the wishes of my very particular Pokemon obsessed son. It was hard since Pokemon is a little kitschy but I think I managed to mesh his theme with my love for clean and simple design. Here is my take on a Modern Pokemon Party:

Dear Ashton,

You are now six years old. You have been counting the days for months until your sixth birthday. It was only a short time ago when I was counting the days until I would finally meet you and be able to hold you in my arms. I will never forget that moment for as long as I live. You’ve grown up to be a very loving and caring older brother and are constantly sympathetic to others’ needs. You and Oliver fight often but you also love having late night discussions about Pokemon and superheroes. I can’t bear to end those tender moments so we let that slide. Remember that your family will always be there for you and love you. Remember that you are a child of God and he loves and knows you- rely on him with big and little things because he cares. Enjoy the simple things in life and don’t wish your life away. I know you can’t wait to turn 7 because then that means you will be bigger and faster (maybe) but you will always be my little baby. I love you with everything I am.
