17 Years Ago..........................

...............today, I became a Mom. It was one of the proudest moments of my life - the minute I held that perfect little girl in my arms I knew things would never be the same, only better. Yep, today my baby girl turned 17 and wow, how time has passed. I just can not believe it!!! To make matters worse, I stop and think that in 8 months not only will I have one 17 year old in the house, I'll have two! Man, time flies when you are having fun.

I looked for a birth pic of Cait but I apparently don't have any scanned of just her so I'll share this one of me, her and my grandma taken when Cait was just a couple days old:


And then a pic from tonite:


Happy birthday my baby girl, I love you!!!

A few more pics from tonite:

Cait opening a gift:


Daisy giving Cait birthday lovies:


Dyl, he is getting sick and is taking meds tonite to try and avoid it, he started this whole mess 2 1/2 weeks ago and is getting his 2nd round, I sure hope I continue to avoid it but I am not thinking I will totally succeed!!! LOL


My poor, sweet, sick DH:


And the last pic tonite is of my latest creation:


It's a Hello Kitty pendant!!! How cute is this??? It isn't paper either so it won't tear!!!! I'm so excited because I made it with a couple friends in mind, they just love HK and I have been scheming for over a week trying to figure out the details and once I got it done I made this thing in like 10 minutes!!!

OK, off to bed. Tomorrow starts a new schedule in the house with Rob going to his new work schedule of evenings. Hopefully I can get my school work done early and get some scrappy stuff done tomorrow!!! I have some really cute cute cute new House Mouse Stamps and a new Whipper Snapper Designs stamp and a Boyd's Bear stamp I am dying to use!!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin' all!!!

Awwww! Love the pix! I hope Cait had a wonderful bday! She is so cute! Such a sweetie!

Lovin' the pendant necklace gf! It totally rocks!!!!!!



Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
