Make it Monday #118

Hello All,

This week's PTI Make it Monday Challenge required us to create a postcard out of some photos that we may have lying around. Well, I found one of my daughter that we had taken when she was a newborn, and thought that this technique would be great to make birth announcements! It's a bit late now for our little pumpkin, as she just turned one, but creating this postcard just brought back so many lovely memories of those early days when she was so tiny and new and we just didn't know what hit us. In a good way, of course :)

So here is a link to the original MIM video by Ashley Cannon Newell

And here is my take:

We had this photo taken by the lovely Deanna from DImages- who I went to school with all those years ago, and when I was looking for a newborn photographer, was pleasantly surprised to be refered to her. And we sure weren't disappointed! Check out her page (linked above) for some major cuteness!

I added a sentiment from Baby Button Bits and also some extra flowers from Mini Blooms to  complement the flower in her little head band. Isn't she precious?!

And here is a picture of the back. Underwhelming I know- I just used a pencil to draw lines in, and then realised how dodgy they looked, but then couldn't find an eraser...So I apologise

That's all for now, everyone, thanks for stopping by!
