I am here today to share that my youngest daughter, Anne, became a teenager on January 15th! We celebrated by having a party for her at Revolutions in Bethlehem.
We invited her friends and family for bowling, arcade games, and sharing her joy. It was a wonderful afternoon filled with fun and laughter!
Here she is with some of her friends and cousins:

If you are a scrapper in need of some inspiration, I encourage you to check out their blog here! Their design team's work and all of the entries are absolutely gorgeous and sooooooo creative!!!!
Happy 13th birthday sweet Anne!!!
