U Rock!

Pin It

My baby turned 10 yesterday. I can’t believe we are now in the double digits. Time is just flying by!

Since she wants to be a rock star when she grows up (in between the time she spends as a vet, teacher, writer, actress, spy, mom, and CSI tech), I thought this image from Pink Cat Studios would be perfect for her birthday card. Of course I had to add some glitter and bling because that is all part of the rock star style.

I was looking for some pictures of Elizabeth from when she was a baby, but I couldn’t find any to share. I can’t believe we didn’t have a digital camera back then (even though I know it is true). Instead I thought I would share a couple pictures from her fencing tournament last weekend. She won the silver medal! I am such a proud momma!

Action shot! She is the one on the right.

Here she is showing off her silver medal after some really hard matches.

She wears that Hammer hat under her fencing gear to keep her hair out of her face.

Happy Birthday, Baby! I love you and am so proud of you!

Her card is adorable and I hope she accomplishes her dreams of the things she wants to be when she grows up.

Yes, time does fly, my baby turned fourteen last month and there are times when it wasn't to long ago I was rocking him and getting up in the middle of the night. Great memories.

I hope your daughter has an awesome fun filled day!

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.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
