Color Throwdown, Jillibean Soup & The Paper Variety

I made this layout for a Color Throwdown challenge and for Jillibean Soup's Facebook page. Oh, I forgot! I also used a paper rosette for the challenge over at The Paper Variety too. Just a simple layout showcasing my first pregnancy pictures! I took a test right after my missed period and was pregnant! I am 8 weeks pregnant for this first ultrasound and we saw the tiny blinking heartbeat.
I'm 36 and finally having a baby...we are SO grateful that it didn't take long even though we had a miscarriage back in May. God is great. We find out if we are having a girl or boy this week!! We are soooo ready to know, pink or blue!

Someone's Joining the Becker Family...Can you guess Whooo?

It's finally time!! I'm 14 weeks pregnant and we find out if we are having a boy or girl on the 27th! We're having a baby reveal party to share the special moment with all our family and friends. I created a very special invitation using Stampin' Up! products. I saw a similar digital one on Pinterest and I used it to create this one.

I used very vanilla for the card base and printed the invitations using my color printer. I used a pea font from Fonts for Peas, they have such cute, original fonts! Then I punched the bottom border with the lace trim border. I attached a piece of soft suede card stock behind it. I also attached a piece of soft suede trim to the top and a piece of patterned paper from Beau Chateau. I stamped the leaves from the Best Friends Forever in soft suede for the background.
I punched the two owls using bashful blue and pretty in pink. Sooo cute!! I love owls. I can't wait to find out if we are having a boy or girl!!
