such a cute idea! Not sure if it would work, but I almost want to see the first ruler look a little different than the ruler below it since it's a scale of weight rather than length. Maybe varying the tickmarks a little more or using a different graphic to mark the place on the second one?

OMG! I am in love with this idea. soooo clever! You nailed it! The tapes are awesome and he transparency on top. Wish the copy on the sticker on top was sans serif. would match better with the "Isabella". But I think you have a winner here.

@Dawn, I had considered a doctor's scale look for the weight, but it just seemed disjointed and not as clean. @ Everyone: Glad you like it!

So clever!!! I LOVE the measuring tapes! Not sure I like the font used for the date and "measured..." You should add the parents names somewhere, also.
