{recent project} baby samantha's birth announcement

yep, another recent project!  i've been so behind on my blogging and i know how much my readers enjoy seeing what i've been up to, and it's no fun when i'm not updating the blog, so... consider this week me trying to make up for my lack of eye-candy filled posting in the past few months...

now, i'd like for you to meet Samantha Grace.... =)
 miss SG, as her mama lovingly calls her is the cute little bundle of love of two of our college friends, SG's daddy and my hubs were fraternity brothers, and his wife and i became pals back at one of their fraternity formals... this mommy and daddy duo are just wonderful people and i know they are going to be an awesome parental team to this sweet little lady! and of course they'll raise her right... to cheer on the Trojans of course, Fight On! .... sorry, had to get that out =)

SG's mommy has a blog of her own {OC Goodmama}, and we used the background pattern from her blog as the inspiration for the pattern of the announcement, but we bumped the pink up to more of a fuchsia to match the little headband SG is sportin' in her photo!  Then we paired the boldness of the pink with the grey text and envelopes, and i just love the way the custom return addy pops off the envelope!

if you happen to be in the market for birth announcements for a new addition, or maybe you need 1st birthday invite, these could easily be turned into those!  i just love this mod pattern and would love to create these for you, change up the colors, make matchy cupcake flags, goodie bag toppers, i'd just love to work with this pattern again!  you can shoot me an email at

this is another item that i'll be listing in my new Joie de Vie Paperie etsy shop, so keep an eye out!
