Baby Update - Justin

Hello! It's been a while since my last post. Little Justin has been keeping me quite busy. Justin arrived on July 9th, at 7:55 am. He was 5 days late. I was going to be induced on Monday morning but he decided to start to come on his own late Sunday night. Below are a few pictures of him. The first one is one of his first days home. Then we have his 1 month photo. I plan to take a picture each month on with a different background. I used MDS to add "1 month" to the bottom of the photo. My plan is to make an album out of all these pictures once he turns a year.

I also wanted to share his baby announcement. A friend of mine took some really cute photos of him when he was about a week or so old. I used these photos for the announcement. I designed it in MDS and printed them out on 5 x 7 photo paper. The background is Gumball Green. Then I added the Pool Party polka dots from the Hip and Handsome overlays. The white dotted lines are also from the Hip and Handsome overlays. Next I added 2 Modern Label punches in Peach Parfait and added white brads to the one with Justin's name. I added some baker's twine in Pumpkin Pie. I also used the Candid Frames around each picture. I really had a lot of fun designing this in MDS. I have upgraded to MDS II but I haven't played around with it too much yet but it looks like there a lots of fun new things you can do with it. I can't wait to try it out more!!

Well my package of new Holiday mini goodies just arrived today. I hope I get a chance to play around a little bit this afternoon if Justin decides to take a nap. Hopefully he will otherwise I'll have to wait until tomorrow. :( It's been a while since I've actually stamped anything so I think I've lost my groove. Maybe the new stuff will inspire me! Thanks for stopping by!
