Announcing......

I edited the original announcement for this blog post.

I made an announcement for our newest addition. I thought I would share it with you since you all played a big roll in helping us fund our adoption. I have a little confession to make. As I sat down to write this blog post I was editing the original to leave off some personal info and I realized I completely made a huge typo. It was too late. I had already ordered my prints, addressed the envelopes, put stamps on and put them in the mailbox. Oh well....I'm sure it's something that Lydia and I will laugh over in the years to come.

I ordered 4x6 prints on pearl cardstock from Persnickety Prints. With the 4x6 card package you also get envelopes. Perfect!

I also turned this into a  little template FREEBIE for you. Just click the image to download the 4x6 announcement template in .psd, .tiff, .png and; .page file (for SBC+3, SBC 4.0 and Artisan Software). You can replace the China mask (my wonderful hubby made it for me) with an element or photo.....or you can use it!


And I thought I would share a few pages that I made about our adoption journey and Lydia. The journaling on these took me awhile because I had a hard time not crying as I was typing.

I'll be turning these into templates soon!
I was so inspired by Tracie's kit that I wanted to start with a blank slate.
So far life is good with 4 little girls....a little busier but definitely good.
