Help me choose my birth announcement! Please?

Now that our new baby girl is here, I want to tell the world! That means I really need to get my birth announcements sent out. And now that I’ve invested in a new camera, I’m a little photo-happy (to say the least.) This works out great since I’m completely in love with Shutterfly and their selection of birth announcements, cards, and photo gifts. I’m always on the lookout for coupons and we use them for easy, thoughtful, and affordable gifts all year long.

I’m not a top notch photographer (yet!), but I think I’ve gotten quite a few that will work nicely for my announcements. The problem I’m running into now is that Shutterfly has sooo many cute options to choose from that every time I get online to design them, I get overwhelmed, can’t decide, and put it off until later.

This is not how you make progress.

So, can you help? Pretty please? I just need some input on which design to choose. I’ve narrowed my favorites down to the few below, and I’d love your opinion! As soon as I order them, I’ll share here on the blog so you can see the one I picked out.

This one is sweet (and I just adore Agnes!)…

Love the font and collage feel to this one (adoring Winifred, too!)

Super cuteness happening here:

Too much or just right? I can’t decide on this one.

I love the treatment on the name here…and our photos have a pink flower. :)

Shutterfly has so many cute announcements to choose from, I really could have listed about 25 favorites. I was tempted to get a few of each just to mix things up, but between these and all the photo books, coffee mugs and other gifts I want to have made with our newborn photos, I have to be at least a little bit realistic about how much time I have. So, one announcement it is. 

Which one is your favorite?

    All are very cute, but I like the first and the last best. I can’t wait to find out what you named her (since I found your blog through a comment you left on my name post on a different blog). And I am so glad I found it because it is great!

    I have to say I like the collage with siblings, but… a birth announcement is about the new baby, with that said I like the last one best. It is simple, but cute.

    I like it’s a sweet little baby girl but it depends on the picture. Depending on if it’s b&w or color and the colors in the photos.

    I really liked the one with the pink bow on her head. Did you ever decide which one to go with? I always have a hard time with announcements too. I end up using them as thank you notes for the baby shower presents.
