The One with the Already in Love Layout

I have a layout up on the American Crafts blog today to celebrate Silhouette week!

ALREADY IN LOVE

Journaling says: Even though you're still so tiny, we are already 100%, completely, and totally smitten by you! We can't wait to meet you!

Notes: We still don't know the gender of baby #2 (HOPEFULLY next Wednesday is the big day!) so I'm going to use as much pink and flowers until told otherwise! If it's a boy, perhaps I'll go back and redo this page. I die cut lots of different doilies from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo and then backed them with assorted pieces of patterned paper from the new Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line. After adhering the doilies to a gray polka dot paper background and trimming the excess, I added an ultrasound picture to the center of three of the doilies and embellished around them with girly pink ribbon trim, gold sequin trim, accordion flowers, and rub ons that I first applied to white cardstock and then cut out so I could place them wherever I wanted and could move them if I changed my mind. There's a bunch of other details involved, like stamping and the title and the stitched banner border, but it'd take forever and a day to write it all, so just look carefully :)

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, accordion flowers, rub ons (flowers, sentiments, star), date stamp, tags, stitched banner, letter stickers, ribbon, sequin trim, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Die cuts (Dear Lizzy Doilies by American Crafts), die cut machine (Silhouette Cameo): QuicKutz

I just request the book to read, I love Nicholas Sparks books, but I always think the movies are never as good, except perhaps The Notebook. I have been wanting to see The Vow, but I keep hearing that it is just "meh" but should I still see it anyway?? or should I go to Safehouse instead?? lol Hubby and I have been trying to get to the movies for a couple of weeks now.

Thinking pink thoughts for you!! It is nice to have two boys though, I have no idea what I would do if I had girls! Way too squealy and bitchy (later) and pink! :o)
