M is for Magnolia

So this is all I got--- there really were other people there besides me and Brooke... but I only took the time to snap a few of the food... ok mostly the food labels... and made sure someone got one of us.

The favor-- did you see it on Martha? I wish I'd taken a picture of them during the day with some pretty light...maybe tomorrow with the left overs. Make a big cookie, stick in a paper CD sleeve, and seal it with a homemade label. Martha has some templates here. But she didn't have one I liked for a baby shower so I made one with her dimensions in photoshop. 1.5 in x 5 in, then printed it on adhesive paper. Just in case you're into that sort of thing.

I don't have photoshop on this beautiful new imac yet, but couldn't bear to resort to the lap top... so blogging with photos is tough right now... I tried out iphoto... great for what it is. Not photoshop though... and these had some SERIOUS white balance issues--- tricky business.

Very cute details, Lillie. I wish you had taken more photos!

Dear Lillie,
Thanks for putting the picture of my artichoke dip on your blog instead of the picture you took of my belly!
Love, Karley

those cookies look and sound delicious. i am not usually a sugar cookie fan either but now i think i need to make these asap. since i've been pregnant my cravings have pretty much been anything that looks good i want immediately. i can't wait for later, i want it now. thanks for giving me one more thing i want to eat!

Well, that's weird. I grew up down the street from Brooke. Small world! said...

The shower was so fun! Thanks for throwing it.

So how did you get such good shots in that lousy light? I saw you taking the pics with no tripod. What settings did you have it on? Bad light is my nemesis! Do tell!

Great shower...thanks for doing all the work! I can't wait to take a picture of us without my really round face though.
