The photos for this layout are from 2 1/2 years ago when we brought the Mess Maker home from the hospital...she was 4 days old. I figured she'd want to see the house we lived in at the time (we've since moved). I printed the photos in black and white and matted them on cream cs. Then I used a stripe pattern for another vertical mat and a house pattern (adhesive backed canvas) for a horizontal mat. I painted chipboard letters in brown and used the Cricut "Opposites Attract" cartridge to cut out "coming". Then I just added some embellishments: three layered flower accents, one house (cut from patterned paper), brads and rub-ons to form a half-circle, ribbon, a name plate, and date (made on the computer)...that's it!
