Surprise!!

Happy Friday everyone! I'm here today with another Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge for you to play along with! This week is super easy! We want to see you using "Office Supplies" on your layouts, cards or off the page projects for a chance to win this fab prize pack so generously donated by The Paper Trail:


I made this layout of Kieran's 3D Ultrasound. I die cut 3 tags from a manilla file folder and stitched them together to make a fun hidden journaling spot! We got the 3D Ultrasound when we had Kieran because we wanted to find out what we were having. We didn't find out with our other two boys, but for our third we decided that we'd had 2 fabulous surprises, and this time we just couldn't wait! I wanted to do the 3D one though because I wanted to be sure that it was right...I've heard too many stories about people being told they were having a girl only to find out that something was just hiding in the ultrasound pictures!  These pictures just amaze me! It's so crazy how you can see Kieran's facial features and everything so closely! With Ethan and Caleb, it just kinda looks like a side profile of a baby and that's it. I think it was definitely worth it getting these done!



Here's the hidden journaling out of it's pocket




The O and 3 banner were stamped with my new Unity stamp (I think I have a mild addiction to Unity stamps...I kinda love em). The set is the numbers 0-9. I wanted to use the 0 and 3 because he's our 3rd baby. I really wanted to sew on this layout too, but my little sister borrowed my sewing machine and while I was making this layout at 1am, I was reminded that I didn't have it and had no way of getting it...so I used my trusty ruler (ooooh...another "office supply" lol) and my fine tipped copic pen and hand drew the stitching. 




All of the goodies on this layout were made using my Counterfeit Kit. This patterned paper was my last full piece of paper left in my kit! 

I made this layout based on another fab Page Maps sketch: 

I really loved this sketch, but I wanted to use all 3 of my pictures on this layout, so I just altered it a little :) 


Are you still with me?!?! I know it's been a long post! Thanks for stickin around! And I hope you join us this week at Frosted Designs!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment too! They make my day!

Cheers

Sarah

Those number stamps are the bomb - and aren't those 3D ultrasounds incredible? My first grandbaby looked exactly like his daddy's baby picture in his - it was creepy! And sure enough he did irl :~)
