Happy 10th Birthday, Anne! and MMD sketch #30!

Today is Anne's 10th birthday!  I can't believe that she is double digits already!  It seems like just yesterday we were in China adopting her at 10 months of age.

Here is a photo taken in China:

And one from today!

I still marvel at that amazing smile she has that melted my heart back in 2003!

Happy Birthday, sweet Anne!

And . . . I would also like to share a wonderful sketch with you today!

Heather Landry's latest sketch - sketch #30 -  is up on her blog!  I was so excited when I saw this sketch and couldn't wait to use it!  

Here it is:

My layout entitled "Ho Ho Ho"

I named it "Ho Ho Ho" because it features photos of Anne and her cousins, Owen and Logan, sitting on Santa's lap this past Christmas.  My mom belongs to the Fearless Fire Company, and has invited my sisters, our children, and me to their Christmas show/party every year for the past 15 years.  (Thanks, MOM!!!) For my layout, I used paper and chipboard from the latest "Cosmo Cricket" Christmas collection.  The vintage feel of these papers and chipboard really caught my eye!

Please head over to Heather's blog, Miracles Momma Designs,  to get a look at more examples from her design team. (We are called her "Miracles Momma Designs Divas!")

 You can check out her sketches and also download a free template there, too.

Thanks so much, Heather!

Have a wonderful rest of your week!  Thanks for your visit to my blog today!
