Her birth announcement I ordered from Shutterfly was my inspiration for this whole layout. I found it, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the layout. I love it when that happens. I need all the creative help I can get lately. This new baby is draining me. I'm looking forward to that so-called return of energy that is supposed to come along with the 2nd trimester. I'm still waiting on it!
The word cuts came from Gypsy Wanderings. Aren't they so beautiful and elegant? The scalloped circle is cut from Elegant Edges.
The pacifier is cut from Baby Steps.
I love the announcement, and it already has all her birth information on it.
The pattern paper is Teresa Collins Chic Bebe Girl. Gorgeous!
The solid cardstock is Recollections.
I'm also entering this layout in this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #195 Mix and Match and My Craft Spot #124 Polka Dots.
