I've loved this project by Danielle Thompson since I first saw her post back in April of last year. Now that I have a child, I figured it would be the perfect time to try it out! I'm thinking I'll take Danielle's suggestion and make one a year to chart the change. It will be fun to hang them as a group as the years progress - not that I'm looking to speed up time. Chelsea is already 4 months old and I can't believe it!

P.S. I've had several people ask how I made the cupcake liner flowers. I hope to get a tutorial photographed and posted very soon, however, a certain little baby has been keeping me from getting much crafting done (no I'm not complaining). In the meantime, this post and this post were the inspirations.

Have a great day!

Hi Karla,

This little project came out so great. I like the idea of making them each year.

Hold on tight. The time just flies with our children. Shelby will be 4 in a few weeks and I still remember her being born as if it were yesterday. Enjoy these early moments!
Take Care,

Hi Karla!
This is a most fabulous idea!!! May I also add that your sweet Chelsea silhouette turned out so lovely! :)
One of my Aunts did this for her Mom and Dad (my grand parents). Everyone was thrilled with the adult version... your version is very exciting!!!

I wish you a VERY LOVELY weekend!
