Treasure map in a bottle pirate party invite

OK, so the theme for Tanner's 4th birthday party is pirates. I have been hunting for ideas & dreaming of what I want for this party since March! We're almost here & I can hardly stand it! I made the invitations this weekend & we got the first two delivered last night! I had the idea & thanks to this website http://www.chicaandjo.com/2008/09/30/make-a-pirate-party-invitation/

I started by downloading a pirate font that I liked from the internet. http://www.fontspace.com/category/pirates It took me awhile to figure out how to use it once I had it downloaded but thanks to Google, I was able to figure it out! You just have to go to the control panel - fonts and install a font. Something like that. It wasn't too bad once I started to do it.

Anyways, I'd found this great wording for the invite from a Mom on this website:
http://www.birthdaypartyideas.com/html/pirate_party.html This is a great website to look for any fun party games & ideas as it's other Mother's giving ideas for what they did with their childs party. I guess maybe I should be submitting my stuff to that website!

Here are pictures of the invite...I changed mine up a bit with my bottle as I had envisioned sand with little shells in my bottle though. This was really easy too! Not as hard as you'd think just in looking at it.
