ok. so i'm gonna do it. i selected this layout from www.purplestork.com

http://www.purplestork.com/files/thumb/t_19.jpg

and here are the pictures i could do:

i think i like this as the main (big) picture...what do you think?
http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/4...16109BcsmLhs0w

and then there are a couple of rowan and ava together...i want to select one:
blasted sippy right smack dab in the middle!!!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/4...16109BcsmLhs0w

head cut off, sort of weird face. LOL
http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/4...16109BcsmLhs0w

and then these are the other ava pics:
awww sleeping
http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/4...15109BcsmLhs0w

i like the idea of these next two together...well, actually one of them on the top left, then a rowan/ava pic, and then the other one on the bottom left...bc they're from the same photo shoot, same position really.

hey we have the same boppy coverss! i chose the same layout, except his smaller pix were at the bottom and the big pix was up and down..does that make sense?
i like the one with Rowan and Ava's face together (the first one).

one thing i did was have the woman who did mine do them in black and white b/c i didnt want the colors in the background..and i think it looked cool.

i didnt do purplestork though..did a smaller business one and she did a great job.

thanks for letting us see them!

oh...and something else i did that was kind of sneaky on my part (a little dig to my original OB), was to state "announcing Ethan, born naturally....". lol!

I like all your pix, Michele! I think my faves are of Ava with the khaki, swirly background. Since those are so simple, I might choose one of those for the main picture, and use the other, busier ones for the smaller spaces. All the pics with Rowan are darling.

Please make sure you post the finished proof!

ETA: I LOVE that pic in the post above! Soooo beautiful!!!

i agree with a plain type background for the big one. for the main focus you don't want a busy background. the less going on the better.

i love them especially the one in it's own post

Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!
