Scrapping Liam's Birth Announcement...

This was one of those layouts I was so nervous about scrapping because it was so important to me to do justice with this one. I mean, it's my first and currently only child's birth announcement. But, I must say I am very happy with how it turned out. I used this sketch from Boys Rule and it was perfect for this page. (If you are interested in attempting the sketch yourself for a chance at a RAK from Boys Rule, you have until August 14th to complete your layout!)
I decided to stick with a Winter/Christmas theme since that was the theme of his announcements. I used all scraps on this page - old Christmas lines from Basic Grey, Bo Bunny and Dream Street Papers. The die-cuts are from Pink Paislee's Snow Day collection (and one of the items in my warehouse sale box), the heart brads are Doodlebug, the pearls are K&Co, the twine is Trendy Twine (thanks Karen!) and the kraft cardstock is of course Bazzill. Thanks for looking!
