Sentimental Sundays #29 - Childhood

I can't believe it but my baby is turning 9 years old on Monday. Where did the time go? It seems like it was just last week when my husband and I were trying to get the nursery set up. I wanted to post a baby picture of her but don't have any in a digital format. So I'll have to settle for a picture of the 2 of us taken at the end of October. We had high tea at the Grand Floridian in Disney World. We both had such a good time (and people complimented her on her manners!). Sorry the picture quality isn't the best, but I still love it.

So, happy 9th birthday Baby! I am so proud of you!

Now I'll get to my Sentimental Sundays project. Our theme this week is "Childhood". For some reason, my brain twisted this around to "for a child". Oops.... I made a card for my daughter thinking it fit the theme until I went to post it. Good thing the SS team is fun and relaxed.

Thank you for looking! I hope you enjoy the rest of your week end. Please join us for the Sentimental Sundays Childhood challenge for your chance to win digis from Raindrop Echo Designs.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
