First Communion

Sorry I've been MIA, been busy with pictures, snapping diapers for a mom on the CD board, working on the garden, dealing with a sick kid (Jordan), and getting ready for Andrew's First Communion.

Here's a link to the portraits I took on Sunday: http://flickr.com/gp/coolmama72/2t2D4v

Here's the collage I just made for his room, I haven't sent it to be print yet, needed a few sets of eyes to review first. What do you think? I just noticed that his skin tone is off in the photo on the right, need to play with that before it goes to print. Ugh. That's what sucks about working on my laptop, I don't see all of the skin color issues on that old computer.

And here's the card I made for him this morning

I will be back later to reply to other threads here. Have to get lunch for everyone and then we're running to AC Moore. Jordan's home from school due to her fever but she seems to be feeling fine otherwise.

Awww, first communion! That is so cool. Love the collage. I didn't notice the skin-tone issue, but that may be why I'm not good at photo-editing Lol

That is such a cute page. I love that pic on the left the best! Thats a framer for sure! Are you guys catholic? Zylin has communion everytime we're at church he LOVES the bread that they use and often steals most of mine as well Wink I try to rip off some of my peice to give to him since he loves it so much...he also dips his bread in the wine just like I do. If we were in the big sanctuary...not in the hall where they do the more informal service he wouldnt take communion but be blessed instead around the altar. Since we usually go to the contemporary service we let him do communion since everyone just goes up in a line and dips (intinction-fancy word for dipping Wink quote from one of our professors)

yes, we're Catholic. wish we had the option to dip here. Wink We don't even do the wine in our diocese, which I think is sad.

and thanks for all of the kind words, everyone. Smile I spent a lot of time on both the collage and card.

I did a google image search to find a striped picture to sort of match. Wink didn't have time to make my own. thanks for noticing the tie!
