{shanks household} happy one year to my Anna Marie // weekly onesie collage

We spent all of last week visiting family in the States and celebrating my daughter's first birthday.  I can't believe this little girl is one already.  Seems like just yesterday we brought her home. 



I had the inspiration for a weekly onesie picture from my friend, Kathy.  They grow up so fast, so I didn't want to JUST do a monthly picture. I also didn't want to spend a fortune (and time ironing on) all those weekly pictures.  Since I know a little bit of photoshop this wasn't that hard to do for me.  I took a picture of Anna every Monday on the same blanket.  (I didn't want to spend money on 52 yards of fabric either) It was knitted by my grandma so its sentimental to me.  I thought putting her on the same blanket each week would show how much she is growing week to week.  After I took the picture I uploaded the image to photoshop.  Then I added a circle and the text.  Super easy right? 

I saw last month that Young House Love is doing the same thing for their daughter, Clara.  They have a very user friendly photoshop tuitorial on their blog.  The hardest part about doing this is remembering to do it every week!  It is SO rewarding though in the end.
