Ice Cream Party Invite (How to add text with PicMonkey)

I love summer.  I remember hot days playing in the sprinklers with friends and eating lots of ice cream.  I'm so excited that this is something my kids do now.  July 1st is Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day and July 15 is National Ice Cream Day (3rd Sunday in July).  (Find our Holiday Calendar here.  There are tons of fun ones!)  To celebrate why not have an ice cream party.  I mean who doesn't love ice cream?!?

Invite your friends over with one of these super cute invitation. 

Gets some cones or bowls (we have these found here-my favorite! and here), ice cream, and your favorite toppings.  You can even have your friends bring some of their favorites to share.  

Turn on the sprinklers, pull out the kiddie pool, or slip and slide and have a great time cooling off during this super hot month!

To use the invitations right click on your favorite one and save to your computer.  
option 1:You can have it printed at your favorite print shop or insert into a word document, size and print.  I like to print on cardstock and size 4 to a page.  They are sized as a 5x7.  
option 2: Use PicMonkey to add text before you print.  

Here's a quick how to. Click on the image to enlarge.
Go to PicMonkey and open your image. 

It will look like this

Click on the text box (in blue on the side) and then add text

Type in your text.  Then highlight to change font and size.
Right click on your text and click duplicate text.  Move into place.

If you click on the 2nd box on the bottom (alignments and grids) the turn alignment on it will help you line up your text.

Change your text to the correct info.  Resize if needed.  Add any additional text (I included please bring your favorite topping to share and place it at the bottom).

Click on export (top) and save to your computer.  You can now print like option 1.
