    Default Birth Announcement (Thanks Charys!)

    I want to thank Charys for being so on the ball with her birth announcements. It kicked my butt into high gear. I sat down and edited my photos some more and got my photo order in to Walgreens this morning. But I was excited to be so close to done that I took pictures of some of the variations using my test prints.

    This was the "page map" I created to tease you with back in December.


    This is how it turned out...


    Some of the other variations....



    Total cost of the project is going to be $4.23 (for the pictures) because I was determined to use up some of the way too much supplies I had at home.

    The birth information is inside the card (as it's like a card card, not a postcard).
    It says
    David, Michelle, Caleb, Anna and Katie
    are proud to announce
    that God has blessed their family
    through the addition of

    Josiah Jeffrey Athanasius (last name)
    Born: January 18th, 2010
    4:02am
    7 pounds, 11 ounces
    20 inches long

    Josiah joined God's family on Sunday, January 31st, 2010,
    as he was baptized into the faith at St. John's Evangelical
    Lutheran Church in (my town), by his Daddy.

    I pick up the pictures this afternoon and then will spend tonight or tomorrow finishing them. (It all depends on if the younger set needs to stay home from church tonight. Church starts at 7pm which is Caleb, Anna and Katie's bedtime. Katie is the only one who doesn't handle less sleep well and is not a night owl so if she's acting tired, hubby wants me to stay home with Katie and Josiah. If that happens, I will work on the cards tonight.)

    Thanks for looking and thanks again Charys.

    oh and yours' were much more involved with the mattes, rounded corners, buttons, etc. so I can see why they took you longer.

    Josiah is ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!! Omg, I could just kiss that sweet face.

    Thanks!

    Charys- I think both our boys are completely cuddly. Mine however, in true boy fashion, has to attack his face so he has cool man scars.

    Oh, and mine are more involved mainly because everything was done ahead of time except for the pictures and printing the inside. This and buying 3 outfits is literally the ONLY things I did for Josiah. We had everything else... clothes, crib, bouncer, special blankets, etc. I was feeling down that I didn't have anything special for just Josiah, so I went overboard with these.

    We were going to write "Cute as a button, but 100% a (last name)" on the inside, but I forgot and don't want to reprint them. My side of the family will get the pun with the stamp, and that's what matters most.
