Audrey: The Baby Announcement

Audrey: The Baby Announcement

This announcement was inspired by the fact that I can never remember my kids’ names for the first few weeks after they’re born. I had a particularly difficult time when Josh was born because he was originally going to be named Asher. My mom told me that maybe I should get a “Hello My Name Is” sticker and put it on him for a few days until I could remember his name. I laughed, but secretly considered it because I was struggling so much!

I created this announcement in Photoshop.  For the chevron border I used these free photoshop patterns from the darling blog.   I used the eyedropper in photoshop to make it match the colors of Audrey’s hat.  The font is Bebas, which you can find here.  I crocheted the hat using a pattern from Tippy Toppers (my first crochet project).

I finally feel like I’m re-entering society a bit (I got 5 consecutive hours of sleep the other night – woo hoo!), so I hope to be posting more soon (and I promise, I have other things to post besides pictures of my baby)!

    Keep the baby pics coming…I love them! Thanks so much for sending me the announcement…we ooohed and ahhhed over the wee one and your excellent photography. Maybe I should use photoshop eyedropper since my shirt does not match the red in our new Christmas card. Sigh… Asher is a nice name – like My Name is Asher Lev? Josh is nice too 🙂 Hope you keep getting sleep!
