Kimberly - I LOVE your seal and photo border! I'm wondering if "proud parents" might be easier understood - I can be dim-witted, I guess, b/c I was reading proud (mom) and (dad jonatahan) and (cecilia mcdermott). Also, is that supposed to be "Jonathon?" This is a lovely design - good luck!

I'm not sure if my comment above was clear on the point that I was thinking it read 3 people on the bottome line...

or put some vertical lines or slashes between "mom and dad" and the names?

Kimberly, I love this design! I agree about the bottom line reading a little funny, although maybe just a comma would help "from proud mom and dad, jonathan and cecilia..."
