Oh Baby!

Hello crafters!
A couple of weeks ago a few special babies were brought into the world. I couldn't post until now as I have only just had the joy of meeting some of them.  Rosina & Teddy were born on Friday 20th March 2015. They have a big brother Archie who is 3 and a half (the half is very important!) and is doing a great job at looking out for his new brother and sister.

I had an idea what I wanted to make them for a while and had started with Archie's picture. He love's football (as does his dad!) and so I wanted to incorporate this into his picture. For Rosina & Teddy I wanted theirs to be personalised so had to wait for the announcement of names to complete the finishing touch (you will see why).

So enough talking, here's what I made with resources under each picture:

Here's a picture of all three together.

To go with their pictures I made a card using the colour challenge from Fab Friday
The colours couldn't be more perfect for a baby boy and girl!

And I used the Retro Sketches layout.

Every celebration deserves some banners and this was perfect for the occasion!

So here is what I came up with:

You may notice I have used a retired stamp set. I have been holding onto this set as it covers lots of lovely birth occasions including adoption and twins. I'm glad I kept hold of it now! I also whipped out some additional colours that are in the Lullaby DSP to bring the card together.
So here's what I used:

  1. Fun banner. Thank you for sharing with us at RetroSketches!

  2. What a fun way to show the versatility of this layout with by changing the colors. Great projects! Thanks for playing along with our color challenge at FabFriday.

  3. The personalized frames are a wonderful gift for the new babies! I agree that our colors couldn't be more perfect! The letters on the little onesies are a great idea. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
