Hey blog friends, hope your holiday weekend is off to a great start! Just thought I would share a digital version of Max's birth announcement. My designer hubby pulled it together but we have to give credit where credit is due on this one - I saw an announcement that I fell in love with by designer Jody Worthington on Minted.com & I couldn't get it out of my head. Using a close inspiration is touchy in the design/photo world - "copy cat syndrome" its called - but usually it's cool as long as you point back to the source of the inspiration. MY hubs is my favorite designer but I asked him to use her idea for inspiration for the announcement and add some touches to make it personal to Max. SO YES I JUST PUT IT ALL OUT THERE, the icons were not our original idea but we loved it and wanted to use it!! It is an original Emily Troutman photo when Max was one week old.
