Welcome Baby Sophia

Happy Wednesday everyone. This will be a short one.. It's too early and I need to get some sleep. One of my BFF's recently became a grandma for the first time. To celebrate I made her these birth announcements (4 of each color).. I completely surprised her and made her cry (that was not my intention.. but I was thrilled she loved them)..

Each onesie was made using a standard A5 card... I'll apologize up front that I can't remember all of the DS papers I used to make these. I just pulled them from my stock (LOL.. if you're anything like me you buy papers on the spur of the moment when U see them and (((HEART))) them.. LOL) . I then made a template to cut out the sides... the neck and legs were cut out using my 1 3/8" circle punch (SUP)... This was a little difficult to do, the punch did not want to cut through 2 pieces of card stock at once.. My hands were killing me... To make the bibs I used pretty in pink card stock (SUP) and cut them out with my Mega Scalloped Punch. Floral and pink ribbons were added to the sleeves for that little extra and pink dew drops were added to the bottom as buttons...



They were so absolutely precious.. Just as precious as baby Sopia.



the inside says.. a new little baby to cuddle and love... to spoil a little and think the world of... a bundle from Heaven to simply adore... who in the world could ask for more! Introducing Grandma Michelle’s Little Angel…

Name…

I added a glue dot which is where Grandma Michelle can add a picture of baby Sophia.. The baby stroller is from the $1 spot at Michael's..
Happy Wednesday !!

Lisa these are absolutely stunning! I love everything of them: the colors, the embellishments, the inner part... So sweet of you to prepare them with the glue dot ready to be used. I completely understand why she was so touched!
I'm copying them right away!
