This is very cute. I love the little plane lowering the Number 1. I'm not 100% sold on the font used for "alec's first birthday"...have you tried any others?

thanks, carrie! i have been playing with that font, and i agree with you. any suggestions for one to try? i felt like i'd been looking at it too long, so wanted to see what others thought about it.

love the illustration of the plane! I would also try a different font for the red type... maybe something slab serifed ( I know that can get tricky but I can't remember off the top of my head what the approved slabs are) maybe archer or rockwell?

I played around some more with the type, so it's now different from the first version. I don't think there's a way to see the first one to compare, is there?

Super super cute! I love the plane illustration and how it overlaps the photo and integrates into the typography. Simple, clean, and very fun!
