It's a...???

I am so inspired by Scrap Our Stash's sketch challenges, the first challenge I did was inspired by SOS and this sketch did not fail to inspire me in the same way! I also love the addition of the inspiration photo!

The inspiration photo made me think of being pregnant with my daughter and searching Pinterest for hours for cribs, bedding, and all stuff baby! One of my favorite Pinterest finds was the countless number of gender reveal ideas. I had such a hard time choosing how to tell our family and friends we were having a little girl!

I used the sketch to make a double layout, with the second page inspired by the sketch. I tried to stick to the sketch, but I did flip it to make it my second page. Here is a closer look at both pages!

Including my son in our gender reveal was a no brainer, but I love these pictures more than I would have ever imagined. It was fun to reveal each one to my family and friends with a short delay between each picture, the anticipation really made them excited too!
I took inspiration from the "life is beautiful" quote and the magenta/pink colors in the photo.

Do you have any fun or interesting ways you revealed your baby's gender to family or friends? I would love to hear them!
Have a scrap'n good time :)
