Keira's 2 year pictures

For Keira's 2 year pictures I had a different vision in my head.
But with just coming home from the hospital with a newborn a week prior to taking these
The vision that I had for her pictures totally changed!
But I do love how these pictures turned out...

With less than 2 weeks until Keira's birthday party.
I figured I should probably take some pictures of her to use for her invite.
On Tuesday (11.6.12) after Kaylee left for school and with the weather being nice, we headed out to the front yard of our house with her looking cute in her outfit to take some pictures.  I didn't know if I would get any of her cause she's at that age where they are like light switches and one minute will be happy and the next she'll be throwing a tantrum.  But much to my surprise she did really good and I was able to get some cute pictures of her!

While my creative juices were flowing I came inside, edited her pictures and then made up her invitations so that I could get them out ASAP.  I designed these myself using and I love the way they turned out!

The only problem was that when I printed them out, they looked like crap!
All the pictures were all distorted.  I was so upset!
So I went to and was going to order these cute invitations but then realized it would take them 3-5 days to get to me and by the time I sent them out there would only be a week before her party, so I had to come up with a different idea.  Jason suggested we just send an evite.  So I made up a cute Olivia the pig evite and sent it to everyone.

I am doing last minute party decor (making the pom poms)
Other than the pom poms I have everything all ready....
I am excited and cant wait!
I just hope it doesn't rain cause were planning on having a bounce house!
The count down is on.  As of today 11.13.12 we have 11 days

    I hate it when I print pics and they turn out way worse than they looked on my computer!

  6. Also- I usually print invites at Costco- you can create them in any program as a 6 x 7 1/2 (I think) then place them on one of their blank card templates and get 50 for only $15, with envelopes and usually printed within a day or so!

  7. She is beautiful! Love those eyes!
