baby announcement help?*UPDATE with PIC*

i'm trying to design an announcement for the boys. I'd like to include then & now pics, birth stats and homecoming stats... with twins, i'm finding it hard to do so without it looking too cluttered!

Any thoughts??

I'd also love to see any of your announcements for inspiration! Smile

I still have artscow credits for 5x7's, so i figured that would be a good way to get my announcements done.

TIA!
---------------------

Thanks everyone... I've been playing around whenever I've had a chance this week, and here's what i have right now... what do you think?

Also, I'd like your opinions... I'm not sure that i want to put my website on the announcement. Do you think people will think it's weird that the address looks like a business website? (which it was/is sorta, but it is where I have the baby updates for now.). It is going to my family and friends, so I would hope they'd know, but I'm not sure who all will be getting them yet.....

I thought about making a free blog that i could point them to the other blog, just so the web address would seem more appropriate, but then do you think that would seem weird too? I do want to make a separate blog eventually, but I don't want to pick one right now while I'm rushed... (need to hurry and order these and get them back so i can send them!)

hope i 'm not babbling too much and that i made sense! running on little sleep andtyping w/ one hand!

You could do one large picture of them now and then underneath have 2 smaller pictures (1 of each of them seperate) with their details under their individual picture.

Ashley's idea would be great for saving space because you would have two large picture to move around. You could even put the small pictures within the white space of the other photo if there is much.

I love the above ideas. One of my favorite sayings that I wanted to put on Patricks birth announcement but didn't was "our family has grown by two feet" Of course yours would say "four feet".....

Leia, Patrick and Scout were the same size and both January babies one year apart.

This was Kaitlyn's:

You could also do a little rhyme - we got a birth announcement that said "A little bit longer, a little bit rounder, our family announces another 10 pounder" (that was their second 10lb baby)....

Another cute saying that I had put on my daughter's announcement read "We welcome with love, our gift from above." Of course yours would say "gifts" Smile

It's wonderful! And I don't think putting your blog would be like a business pitch at all. Basically, that's where you've been keeping everyone up-to-date anyways, so they would know that. I love the pic of them when they were first born and now. Perfect!

I think it looks great!!!!!! and if you want people to know the blog address, just put it. don't sweat that it looks like a business address ... it's where they need to go. Smile

that looks gorgeous! Love the pic of the twins with Robby Biggrin
And I agree with the girls, no biggie posting your work website since that's where all the updates have been....plus unless they are scrappers it doesnt sound too work orientated of a web name anyway lol
