Baby Announcement Shadowbox

Okay... DAY 4 of the National Scrapbook Day Celebration, Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage is hosting.
Hope you've been keeping an eye on the Heartwarming Vintage blog to get in on the free vintage printables and lots of giveaways! Check it out HERE each day this week. I'll be hosting my $50 giveaway on Saturday!
It's been a inspiring week with all the gorgeous things the DT has been sharing

My Crafty Secrets project today is a Birth announcement, using my shadowbox die.. ( which you can purchase already cut HERE on the Crafty Secrets website)
The images I used are from the "Joys of Life" booklet, although you can get lots of great baby images from Crafty Secrets HERE on the website.
When I was thinking of this.. I wanted to be realistic (time wise), and not have it be so involved that if you had a new baby you would never have time to make, right? lol Sweet and Simple .. yet cute! Easy enough to be able to make a few of them for family members and close friends.... or atleast for Grandma and Grandpa.
I did this so it would close into a card. It's held shut with Velcro.

If you knew what you were having you could have the rest all put together and just add the photo and print out the info for the space on the right.

** (Thanks to my friend Deb for letting me use the photo and birth info from her sweet little granddaughter Kaylie.. for this project) Isn't she a doll!
Last night was just such a gorgeous evening! Lots of people where out enjoying the weather. These guys were in flying around the field just to the East of us..and they were so colorful against the pretty blue sky.

They might have wondered what I was doing out there taking pictures of they didn't seem to mind , since they kept flying over and waving. lol

Today was pretty out ..but really windy. We took the dogs out to the cabin for a while, since it was Dans day off.
( haha.. I just looked at this photo closer and it looks like Dan is carrying a bucket in his hand, or something. He's just walking past a tree stump)

Hoping all of you are having a good week!
Until tomorrow!
ps. be sure to check out the Hearwarming Vintage blog giveaways

I adore that baby shadowbox! How beautiful and what a wonderful gift to give someone. I just ordered one set of each of your die cuts from Crafty Secrets and can't wait to get them. Your work so inspires me.
I love the collection of photos you have been sharing with us the last few days. Really nice!
