first year photo collage for the slacker parents

First Year Photo Collage {For the Slacker Parents}

Ok, I am fully aware that my child is almost 2 and a half years old.

But hey, better late than never right?!

Plus, I didn’t have pinterest when I was nursing my infant (man that would have been a wonderful thing) so I didn’t get all these great photo collage ideas or labeled onsies or chalkboard backgrounds or little signs or on and on and on.

But I am a blogger and the family paparazzi so I do have a ton of pictures.

And after seeing the 2,102,034,982,348th infant month by month photo collage, I decided picmonkey was there to save the day for us slacker parents.

That is when I got the idea to go back and take a picture from each month, which was easy because that is what blog archives are for, and label them with a month number.

Then I threw them all together and got this!!

Look at me lookin’ like super mom and getting collages done on time, the fact that it took an additional year and a half is our little secret.

And then after you have made your collage in picmonkey you can go back and start messing with effects to make yourself feel like a photographer.

Dusk:

Gritty:

HDR:

Polaroid:

Black and white with color accents:

Tranquil:

Urbane:

Sepia:

Ok that is probably enough.

Well, more likely it is more than enough, but whatever, I was having fun.

There you go, how to look like mom of the year ….a couple of years late.

Besides, 20 years from now, unless I read this blog post, I am not going to remember that I did this late, I will just be glad I have it.

    What a great idea! I was late on the pinterest bandwagon too. Now my son can have a collage 2 1/2 years later too! And I absolutely love the Urbane graphic on your collage! It really accentuates her red hair :)

    When your gorgeous daughter is 20, she’ll think you did it right at 12 months and love you more when she finds out you’re not perfect, but still made it for her.

    So sweet! I love the way the gritty one looks. I’ve never used picmonkey, but I have to keep it in mind next time I’m making a collage!
