1st Birthday Girl

Hey there,

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. Today my cousin's baby girl is having her 1st Birthday Party tonight. I'm pretty excited cause I don't often get to hang out with these cousins, not sure why, as we all got older and we all started going our separate ways and getting married we stopped getting together but hopefully that will change. I know when I get married and have my house and a nice backyard you bet I'll be inviting everyone over for dinner and for the kids to play. I love hanging out with family and having everyone united, it's a good thing to do and it's a great way to raise your kids together.

So for today I want to share with you the card that I made for baby Alayiah, pronounced Uh-lie-Uh, it's from the bible, very unique and very pretty!!! I love the 1st Birthday Girl image from Mo's Digital Pencil, so I had to buy just for Alayiah's first birthday. I always wanted this sweet little image yet I never had a little girl to give it to and then when I was thinking of what to do for the card, I remembered I wanted to buy the image, so I did!!!

So here is what I came up with, Enjoy!!!
Super Sweet huh?!! 

Oh and my cousin requested that we purchase a book as part of Alayiah's gift, so the other day I spent about an hour looking around in the kids books section at Barnes and Nobles. Let me just say I wanted all their books!!! I sure wish I had some nieces or nephews who I could spoil with some great books or maybe even my own kids, some day. I could not make a choice, that's for sure, there were just to many good ones that I wanted to bring home with me. I ended up purchasing a book called Bedtime Stories that had three great short stories in it, really cute, and something that Alayiah will be able to enjoy when she gets older and can read.

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy your weekend!!!!
