Creative Birth Day Announcement :: Hey, That's Pin-tastic!

I'm a printable-creating virgin. There, I said it. 

But with easy-to-navigate online photo editing programs like PicMonkey, creating this creative birth day announcement was super easy. I simply uploaded a blank white background (a blank MS paint document that I had saved to my computer) and began to strategically place my text where I wanted it. Playing with size, font and color and referring to this pin (what a shame there's a misspelling!) I was able to create something that I loved and cannot wait to hang in the nursery. 

Not too shabby for my first attempt, no? It needed to half-rhyme. Needed to. 


Amateur? Yes. Took forever? Yes. Perhaps I shall leave the printable-creating to the professionals. ie: Pinterest and Etsy.

  16. Loved yours! And yes, what a shame there's a typo in the Pinterest version. I've fooled around with one for Rhys but didn't quite know how to capture the 3-weeks-early-almost-had-him-at-work-or-in-the-car in just a few short phrases. Maybe you can help me with mine?!
