Little Miracle :)

I have a new layout to share, it is also a bit of an announcement. :)

 Yes, I am pregnant! These ultrasound pictures are from 7 weeks ago, I am due January 24th, 2013! I did this layout for a couple of challenges.

 The first was Challenge #2 for the My Scraps Got Talent contest.  The challenge was to use the sketch below and do some distressing.  I turned the sketch and added another photo.  For the distressing, I roughed up and inked some of my paper edges and spray and splattered some ink.
The other challenge was at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  The prompt this month was "created beauty."  There is nothing more beautiful than new life, so I thought it was a good time to get these ultrasound images scrapped.  Here is a close up of my journaling so you can get a better idea of our journey to this pregnancy.

The other part of that challenge was to include some stitching on your layout.  I ran a zig zag stitch down the edge of my pink paper to tie it together with the other papers. For the two large hearts, I used embossed grungeboard that I first colored with white Distress stain and then inked with green and blue Distress Ink to accent the embossing.
