    Awesome Abby Manor party kit

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 1st 2016

    I ordered the complete kit, while it cost significantly more than just doing the downloads, I knew I would not have time to do all of the printing. I can say without hesitation that it is totally worth the cost. All so professionally done, ready to go and so well organized. Have not had the party yet, just sending out the invites, but so excited for the event!!!
