dr. seuss baby shower invitation

here's the invitation i came up with and designed in photoshop for my friends shower. i made up/wrote the little poem (**update** I've actually had quite a few people try to sell and copy this invite/wording. Please do not do so unless you have permission from me. Thanks!).

i'm really excited for the dr. seuss theme. i've been wanting to do a dr seuss party or shower for a while now. i have some really fun stuff up my sleeve! it was kind of a challenge at first to find things that were 'dr. seussy' & girly...but i think the theme will work out rather well!
the top photo is actually the inside of the invite. and this next photo is the front of the invite...i changed the wording from, 'oh the places you'll go' to 'oh the places she'll go' {since she's having a girl}.

*update* i am now customizing these invites for your own personal use. see below for details.

***UPDATE***
due to popular demand, i am now selling these invites on eBay {along with a boy version, as well as a cat in the hat version}.
go here to get all the details.
thanks!

Thanks for showing us.

Thanks.

Hi Kara,

Not to sound like a broken record, but we are also hosting our sister-in-law's baby shower and want to use these invitations.

We have photoshop. Can we get a high-rez version of your file, front and back? Do you have a photoshop layered or illustrator version of this file?

THANKS so much!!
