Dreams You Didn't Even Know You Had

Good Monday morning to all of you! Today I have another layout to share with you. I did this layout about the surprise of having a daughter after having three sons. Even today, four months after she was born, I still sometimes find myself surprised by a splash of pink in the laundry or when spotting her pink toys out of the corner of my eye. I also still have to catch myself from calling her a him--or "little buddy" instead of "little miss." We have been in 100% boy mode for so long it is still a shock that we have this precious little girl as part of our family now. Here is the layout:

I did the title for this layout on my Cricut using fonts from the Wild Card, Art Deco, Plantin SchoolBook, Simply Sweet, Country Life, Robotz, and Paper Lace cartridges.

The papers used for this layout are from October Afternoon's Woodlands collection. The brads are by Pebbles, the pearls by Queen and Company. The Bunting is a punch by Stampin' Up.

The journaling reads: "After having three boys I was quite content. I loved being a mom to just boys with all my heart. I had always thought having a daughter would be nice, but was content with waiting for granddaughters. And then we were surprised to find out that we were having another--and then we shockingly found out that it was a girl! And that was when I found out that you Claire, were a dream I didn't even know I had, but am so happy came true!"

Thanks for visiting today!
