I spent way too much time online looking for the perfect birth announcement.  I started keeping my eyes peeled as soon as we found out we were having a girl.  I wanted something colorful, with pattern, unique, matte paper and didn't want to spend a fortune on them.  I looked at Tiny Prints, Shutterfly, Minted and Snapfish.  I ended up going with Snapfish because I found a great announcement that met all of my criteria and they were doing a 40% off any purchase coupon code at the time.

Olive's announcement:

 Since we were moving a week after these got mailed out, 
I had our new address printed on the back of the announcements.
Snapfish doesn't charge extra for this and I was excited to take care of two things at once.  I also put my blog address so that family & friends could follow along.

I ordered some stickers on-line from the photo lab at Costco with one of my favorite snapshots of Olive so people could see what she looked like right now.  They are $3 a sheet and are such a bargain!  I used them to seal the envelope and also stamped her name on the back next to the sticker.  I addressed all of the envelopes with a mint green marker and stamped a pink return address on the front.

I was so happy with how they came together.
