Choo Choo! Someone's Turning Two!

I can not believe in just a few weeks, my little baby boy will be two years old.
Where has the time gone!?

I really wanted to make his birthday invitation and now that I finally have a scanner and photoshop, I had no excuse not to!

Alex is obsessed with trains, so his birthday is going to be train themed.
He's going to be sooo excited!

I made a rough little doodle then searched around for tutorials on how to color in photoshop.
It's been quite awhile that I've really been able to play with photoshop.
(I use it everyday at work, but that's different!)

This was the first time in a loooong time I've colored anything in photoshop
(and I'm pretty sure the first time I've ever completed a picture in photoshop, heh.)
I still have a lot to learn, but I'm pretty happy with it for my first attempt!

And then the invitation!
(I blacked out the address and phone numbers...sorry! Don't want any surprise people showing up! Haha!)

I'm no graphic designer or anything, but I'm quite proud of how it turned out!

By the way...everytime I've had the picture pulled up on my screen to work on it,
Alex will run by, laugh, and say "Choo choo! Yay!"
So he approves and that's all that matters!
