A hybrid layout of Brooklyn's first year. The journaling reads "It's an eternity that passes in an instant." We just celebrated her third birthday this week and that first year seems like a lifetime ago...that happened just yesterday. lol. Try explaining that one! Smile


For the title design, I typed "365" numerous times in different fonts and used the outline feature in Photoshop to create this green on white design. I then copied my project and changed the outlines to white and the background to black. The black and white print was adhered onto cardboard alphas, trimmed and lined up on the layout. Hard to tell from the wonky photo, but it actually creates some cool dimension.
