Four Years Ago Today

Four years ago, my life was forever changed. I became a different person in many ways and I am thankful for the changes she has brought into my life. She is the reason I became a scrapbooker.

Happy Birthday, Emma! I love you more than I can say. I wanted to share a brief through the years today and then the 'mom' moment will be over for now. ;)

And my little artist's latest drawing - those of you familiar with the Backyardigans might recognize some of these figures. She brought this home from school last week and I was blown away by the details she added. It is funny how proud you feel when you child takes after you in certain areas - we spend a lot of time together in the crafting room. Em has a great interest in cutting, pasting, painting and drawing. She loves to mix colors of paint to see what new colors she can make and her cutting skills are astonishing, for her age.

So, enough mommy bragging - just a happy 4th birthday to my baby!

And in other news - I just posted my projects on The Next Step - you can check out some of my ideas for altering your papers: here.

I was featured on the Graphic 45 blog last week! And had a layout show up on the Sassafras blog, too! Very exciting for me!

Hope your week is off to a great start and I'll be by after our partying tomorrow! :)
