Samuel's Birth Announcement

In the 90's I created custom framed birth announcements such as this one by the dozens.  That was way before all the new stuff for scrap booking came out.  I would get the announcement and depending on the theme would draw all the little characters,etc., water color them, cut them out, collage them and create a one of a kind, dimensional keepsake.  However, this one was mostly created with store bought scrap booking ephemera with the exception of the waves and clouds.  Each one was further personalized with my dimensional Roman letters that are drawn, scored, cut and shaped.
I had created 2 others for this client way back when and she contacted me when her daughter was due to give birth with her third, unexpected child and wanted them all to have a similar keepsake.  I don't remember what the others looked liked so I'm hoping this one will fit right in.
