"Scrap the Refrigerator Continues" Baby Announcement | ArtBin Giveaway for Circut Lovers

I saved the front page of Little Honey's scrapbook for this announcement card.  But I loved the card so much I left it on the refrigerator for over a year.  With some inspiration from Karen Zueger's layout on Graphic 45's NING site I had a great time cutting and designing. 

Ingredients:  Graphic 45's A Ladies' Diary; Technique Tuesday's chipboard; Tim Holtz's On The Edge Alteration Butterflight; Tim Holtz's Distress Ink pads and pens; title letters Maya Road; Tim Holtz Idea-ology clock face, word sticks, wing, and button; Epiphany Crafts epoxy caps and buttons; Fiskars Postage Stamp squeeze punch and May Flower squeeze punch; Making Memories tiny alphas; Ranger water brush and white enamel;
Can you tell I get the biggest kick out of cutting up my Graphic 45 paper?  The details in the designs just lend itself to cutting it up and making something new from it.  I'm also able to take one sheet and often get more than one page of elements.  If you are not sure how you can use your G45 check out their NING site for inspiration. 
I used my On The Edge die cut and after the first cut I lined it back up to get a continuous cut for my border.  Afterwards I colored my butterflies with the Distress Pens then went back over them with a water brush for that very cool water color effect.  I loved doing this.
