Baby Boom

It seems like every time I turn around lately, I am finding out that another friend of mine is pregnant. I can think of 4 or 5 people, off the top of my head, who are expecting. Well, today, I was at the mall and decided to visit one of the stores with baby clothes in it. Believe it or not, while I was in there, I found the inspiration for this card based on the latest sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You.

I had made little paper turtles like this a while back for another challenge in which I could use only paper to embellish a scrapbook page. (They are an idea that I got from Creative Memories.) When I saw a darling little outfit with a turtle on it, these guys popped into my head. I thought that they would work nicely with the round elements on the sketch. Now, my 3 elements wound up being a bit wider than those on the sketch so I staggered them, but I like the visual triangle that it created. Now, I am just about ready with gifts and a card for one of the new arrivals. Just a few more to go.
