Birth Announcement Layouts

One of my favourite types of layouts to do are those when a child is born. It is always fun when a new family member enters the world (yours or someone else's) and I love to do a layout of a picture of when they're only new and include all their personal details. Especially when it's not your child, those are the details you tend to forget, but it's nice to have a record of them for future reference. 
This layout is to be entered into the Artfull Crafts February Challenge for their Colour Challenge. This was the colour palette:
And here is my take on it:
 I included some mint green to match the colours in the photo. I loved using a whole range of pinks and floral in a layout, something I don't often do as I don't have a daughter myself. Her personal details are typed under the piece of spotty paper (they don't need to be available on the internet!)
 Lots of layers and dimension. The layout is made using the divine 'Sweet Pea' collection from Kaisercraft. One of my all time favourite baby collections.
 Alphas that have been in my stash for years! Queen & Co., I think. I loved adding the sequins as the dots on the 'I's.
The whole layout is layered on a piece of pale pink fabric-ish 'paper'. I really don't know what it is or where it came from. It's been in my stash for years and this is the perfect use for it! I love using old stuff out of my stash along with newer things.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look.
