A sweet baby announcement!

I was so excited about using these images, i had been wanting to use them since i bought them.  They so remind me of my grandkids.  When this challenge to make something "sweet" came up at Mo's challenge blog and thought..."oh, sweet!", i can use these images and make my daughter's birth announcements plus there is a bit of a sweet sucker in the image!

Here is what i think about the images, Ayden, my grandson, is the boy w/the orange shirt...he likes orange and his bangs separate just like that.  He is a twin to Beckett they are going to be 5 in Oct. Beckett is non verbal/autistic and is the sweet little boy to the right...he just never wants to look at the camera...and even though this little girl has more hair than Sadie who is 2, she is very similar to my granddaughter so i colored her thinking of her as my granddaughter. :)



What i did:
The images are actually, two separate digital images, Guilty Bert and Brady & Chloe.  I cut off the sucker that the little boy was holding behind the little girl's back so that i could include "Bert" with the images.  I have used the sketch from deconstructingjen's blog.

Copics i used:
Skin- E51, 00, 02
Bert/Chloe's Hair- E31, 33, 34
Brady's Hair- E33, 34, 39
Bear- E31, 33, 81
Brady & Bert's shirt & socks- B32, 41
B & B's shorts- E31,34
B & B's shoes- C3
Brady's button shirt- YR15, 23
Chloe's outfit- Y15,11, RV63,66
Sucker- RV63, 66
