Trinity - It's A Girl

I have to admit I have had this one done for a while ... I have been waiting to get pictures of it as a full two pager but I just finally made the time. This was a big event for us not only because we were adding another member to our family but we did not know if it would be a boy or a girl. I had gestational diabetes with this pregnancy so I was getting ultrasounds every week... and every week a new technician would tell us it was a boy ... then it was a girl ... then it was a boy This was rather frustrating for my Hubby because he really wanted to know... I on the other hand did not so I was excited to find out I was going to be able to have a sweet girl to dress, primp and play tea time with. Not to mention a mothers intuition was telling me it was a girl the whole once again I was right.
On the first page is one of my favorite pics of all time. I love the proud expression on my son's face when he gets to hold his new little sister for the first time. This was one of the happiest moments of my life. It made my family complete.
Now that you know a bit of the story behind this momentous occasion here are the LOs.
These were created for two different challenges. I am still not satisfied with the "Our Princess" title on the second page, but I will need to find a rub-on or a sticker or something else eventually. I may just leave it...
Now for the juicy details of page 1:
Top Left: This flourish is done with the cricut Home Accents cut on cream CS with the bling added. Also there is a K & Co. butterfly sticker (which I like to only stick the center down and put pop dots under the wings to give them flight.) The pearl beading is from the JoAnns 1$ bin. Also one last little touch. The little silver wire twig with purple gems at the end is from the wedding craft section.

Bottom Left: This is a pic of the bottom Left floral detail with the hidden journal box fully pulled out to show. Most of these paper shapes were done with the cricut Home Accents cartridge.
Bottom right: The rub on is "Its a Girl" the velvet beaded ribbon was a & store special and I love it! Also in this pic you get to see the green {bracket} boarder used on the right of the photo. Please note this } shape was hand drawn to create this cute boarder. Also there is a sneak peak of the lettering. Again that is cricut George Font Cartridge.
The second page was inspired by the first and I basically used the same papers with slightly different cricut images. The LO needed to incorporate the three photos of the people who were there with the Hubby and I. My mother, MeMaw and my Mother in Law, Tia. I loved this bird image once I saw it I had to have several cut for me. I will admit that now I currently do not have a cricut. I knew I wanted to do a symmetrical LO for the second page with the three pictures. These type of designs are not easy for me and It took me all day at a crop to get this done...

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about my family and my hobby. I would be happy to answer any questions about the LO or an item I used on one. Please feel free to express your opinions about my work in my comments. I appreciate you taking the time to read and view bits of my life.
