Birth sampler

I finished this yesterday:

Photobucket

I just have the details to add which I am thinking about as although it is a different picture to my first nephews sampler as they are brothers I am wondering if I want the wording similar. However the set up is different so I am trying to work out if I can fit it in as I did the date in full which this isn't charted for. I also left off Benjamin's weight so think I want to do that again but need to work out the placements. This is one thing I didn't consider when I was trying to make the samplers different but not so much that one feels they got more than his brother. Not sure being boys they will even notice or care but am determined not to show favouritism even at this stage-I mean I even panicked as this one for Oliver has sparkly thread for the bubbles in it-what am I like?
I think the colours is fairly true to life as the background uploaded a bit dark so I changed it in the software to look brighter-it was stitched on Antique White but looked grey in the original picture, but you get the idea. ;-)
