My birthday girl

Sage turned seven today. I just can't believe my baby girl is seven....

I thought I'd revisit some of my favourite layouts that I made about her over the years...

This one is from 2005:


2006:


2007:


2008:


2009:


2010:


And earlier this year:


And here she is today:


And here is the birthday card I made for her, using the new-to-me PTI goodies that arrived in the mail today. I love happy mail days!


I used PTI cardstock (aqua mist, stamper's select white), stamps & dies (Little Bitty Bird.) I used an SU! marker to colour in the leaves and SU! Wonderful Wisteria cardstock. I cut a little piece of Lily Bee patterned paper to make the hat and topped it off with a SU! pearl.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday to Sage. What a nice retrospective you posted. She sure is cute! I remember those days of missing front teeth. Enjoy it while you can. And, love what you have done with Little Bitty Bird.

Adore your layouts as always, Leigh! Happy birthday to Sage! Your dear daughter is so cute; my random observation is that she has FANTASTIC eyebrows *grins* She's growing up to be a beautiful young lady indeed!
