Birthday Collage


I can't believe that tomorrow is Finn's birthday! Over the past few days, I've been looking back through his pictures to try and find one for each month of his first year. For his birthday, I wanted to display pictures of him - newborn through one year. I also did this for Ella's first birthday and it was so fun to see how she had grown.

Last night I was talking to my SIL, Shanna, and we were talking shop - Photoshop that is - and she gave me the idea to do a collage. I'm pretty inexperienced in Photoshop and I'm just kind of a figure-it-out-as-I-go kind of gal, but I thought it was a great, fun idea. So, I took the pictures I had compiled and put them together in a collage. The top left picture is Finn the day we brought him home from the hospital, 2 days old. Each picture represents one month of his life and the bottom left one was taken yesterday. What wonderful memories and moments we have had this year!

HE IS ADORABLE! He's such a pretty baby--hope it's ok I said that since he's a boy. You should get him into baby modeling. He's so photogenic! And the collage is such a good idea. I noted to do that once we have a one year old.:)Miss you Tamara! Love, Twink

Happy Birthday Finn! I can't believe it! He is growing way to fast, as they always do, and he is so handsome! I don't know if I can wait til summer to see y'all. The collage looks fabulous, as does anything you touch! BTW I'm taggin you (it's my 1st time), you are supposed to visit my blog www.jsbikman.blogspot.com and go from there with instructions. It's fun & silly.

Love the collage! He is a doll! I wish I could figure out the photoshop thing. I got it a few years ago for Christmas, and so far all it does is store my photos!

BTW- Tag. You're it. I'm new to the blogging thing, and don't know too many who do blog, so I'm tagging some of my faves. No pressure!

Happy Birthday Finn! Being one is great, but just wait until you turn two! Tam, great collage. I am going to have to try that idea, one of these days. It is something your kids will have/love forever. By the way, he is very handsome.

I loved the pictures - especially the latest one because I haven't seen it before. He's adorable! I could kiss that little face to pieces. Hope the birthday party was fun. I love all you Cooper-Leavitts and miss you terribly.

Tamara...you all have such beautiful children! He's so cute, and his little smile is just infectious.

It does not hurt that Mom takes great pics either! Great collage!
