Transformation Thursday – 1st of Many

Theme: 1st of Many
Type: Digital Design
Size: 12×12 Template
Sketch Inspiration: Macy’s Flyer. Sketch posted 1/3/2012
Materials: 4 photos
Paper: 3 – plain
Main Colors: Red, Orange
Supporting Colors: Blue
Embellishments: Sun, stars, floral swirls, flowers
Sources: KiddyKit Designs
Details: Only a few months old and so adorable, we scheduled a photo shoot. I’m sure it’s only the first of many more photo shoots to come. Autumn was very restless and too little to care about the camera, and getting the parents to focus was a challenge. It took forever to make it through the session. Luckily we managed to get a few good shots.
