Welcome little one with Chomas Creations engraving tip and mini gel pen holder

I ran across this photo of my youngest (almost 5 years ago) and couldn't resist scrappin it hehe!  I never thought I would have 4 kids (yes I have 4 kids!!!) but I sure do!  Some people think I'm crazy but I can't imagine it any other way hehe!
Sometimes I like my layouts super clean, but sometimes I like to shabby them up a bit!   I love the look of the Chomas Creations engraving tip on the Core'dinations cardstock.  Core'dinations cardstock has a solid color with brown or black on top, so when you engrave, or etch through the brown or black you get the color underneath!  I did a lot of lines on this page with the Chomas Creations engraving tip and Design Studio.  Then I lightly sanded the top to get this look!

To go even further with the shabby I roughed up the edges of my paper, and then sewed it to my page. 
I designed the title and stars in Design Studio with Simply Charmed and you can download that file here... welcome little one file
I drew the title with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder & the light blue metallic mini gel pen from the assorted pack, then cut around the shadow.  I also layered the stars.

The journaling oval is something I did with MTC and my Wacom tablet and the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder and I'll be sharing the file for that soon!

The papers and brads are all Making Memories  Pitter Patter Oliver line.
