Special delivery

Hi there and happy Wednesday to you all.  I hope its a bit cooler in your knack of the woods. Perth has been sitting around the high 30's, early 40's for the last 5 days now.  Apparently we can expect a drop in the temperature tomorrow. :)  I have been scrapping a bit though.  Here is my first layout using my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store.  This photo was taken nearly 20 years ago when I held my baby boy for the first time after he was born. :)  I've used the new My Minds Eye Collectable 'Unforgettable' collection.
My title was cut using my Silhouette Cameo machine. I've just added double sided foam tape at the back to give it a 'lift'.  The cute little birdhouse is from Dusty Attic.
The saying on the sticker on the left 'I remember the first time I saw your face' is what made me dig out this photo of my son's birth.  When I showed the layout to my DH, he said 'I remember that day'.  I don't think you ever forget, do you?  The 'special delivery' was also cut using my Silhouette. :)
 Not sure about my choice of paper for the 'stork', but just loved this little image and wanted to add it. :)
Another little stork. :)
I have more to share on Friday, so I guess I will 'see' you then.  Thank you so much for visiting.  I know I've been a slack blogger and have been bad on the commenting side.  I'm planning a 'mass blog visit' episode tonight. In the meantime, have a lovely day and hope you get to do something special for Valentine's Day tomorrow. ;)
Until next time.
