Photo birth announcement for Sidney

How I love flowers! I thought this was such a great idea for spring and summer photo taking. The garden, of course! Flowers not plentiful enough? Never fear; I will add more! Dirt showing? I can hide it! This photo birth announcement for Sidney is the epitome of summer. Wouldn't you agree?

I was thinking of how you could place your baby in the garden to take photos. You could set your baby in a big basket, lined with a comfortable blanket. Or you could hold the baby up, and use the flowers in the background. I'm remembering a birth announcement I did last summer, or perhaps it was the summer before. Another flower garden photo. That photo was taken with the baby in front of a rose garden. The colors were just beautiful. And although some of the close up rose petals were wilted, I fixed them to look perfect. I will try to locate that design to share with you.

In the meantime, I hope the beginning of summer finds you enjoying the longer days and the warm sun. I've been trying to read more; a favorite pasttime of mine that seems to go by the wayside when I am (too?) busy. Perhaps I will pencil "book time" into my calendar...and sit out on the porch and enjoy my own small (but growing!) garden.
