Mommy’s Idea Book Theme

This new theme for MommysIdeaBook.com was inspired by a Baby Announcement I ran across on the web during a Google search. The first thing that got my attention was the pink stripes at the top of the page. My first draft had a light pink background, but after the client suggested the cream, the theme really started to pop.


I spent several hours drawing the custom cartoons for many of the categories and the rss feed, though I had originally intended to take my sketches an turn them into illustrations with Adobe Illustrator. After scanning the first one, decided to go with the hand drawn look to give the site a hand-crafted appeal.
