3 months in the making.....

So I've been working on my daughter's birth announcements for over 3 months now! It started with an idea I came across from another CTMH consultant. I then found the template and chose my papers/colors. Then I made a prototype out of scraps. Then she came and I got busy with newborn stuff! I placed my order for supplies though. Sometime in June I started cutting out the card bases. I decided on the photo to use in July and got that ordered! Sometime later in July, I worked on them some more. At the end of July I spent a week at my parents house and sat down and worked on them some more. My mom then threatened me that I had to get them out soon or else. So now that my retreat is over, I'm caught up on life... I made it my project of the week!! It took a few hour this week but they are done!!!! ALL 96!!!!!!!!! My goal was to have them out before she's 3 months old (I made it). They will be handed out to those who come to her baptism this weekend and then mailed out on Monday!

** Disclaimer---- if you are lucky enough to get one of these beautiful creations, I better see it proudly displayed in your house somewhere! If not, you will be disowned!!!!!! hee hee!
