Marianne's Shower

Celebrating the impending arrival of Marianne's little one. So very happy for her!

If you want to see more projects with cute little umbrella's on them, then you better hop over to Sketch Support.

Custom journaling block: I wanted a coordinating colorful journaling block but didn't have the right thing pre-made. So I took a Jillibean Soup journaling block that was simple and accented it with the same patterned paper from the umbrella. I also added some whimsy by cutting out birds from another patterned paper.

Products used - Patterned paper: American Crafts (die cut), Basic Grey (pink hearts), Flair Designs (brown), My Mind's Eye (green branches), Cloud 9 Design (green hearts), Creative Imaginations (wood - umbrella handle); Journaling block: jillibean soup; Birds: 3 Bugs in a Rug (cut from patterned paper); Letter Stickers: American Crafts, Creative Memories; Sketch: Sketches for Scrapbooking Volume 7

Tobin's Birth Announcement

I know, I know. I've been MIA. No posts for March and now it's most of the way through April. Ugh. Our family had a R.O.U.G.H. flu season. We are so very thankful for spring. I will now try to get caught up on posts!

Here is my layout for Tobin's birth announcements. It shows the front and back of the card I sent out to friends and family.
