"One Year Older" kit

As promised I have created a birthday kit using the first runner up from the Color Combination Contest (great colors Moe!)I loved to make this kit because everything about it screamed fun! And that's how birthdays should be! (However, for some reason my birthdays seemed so much more fun as a little girl then they do now...now I do not WANT to get older! Does anyone feel the same?)

I have to give credit to an awesome designer that I just discovered and she calls herself Scrappin Cop. She has created some FREE actions that you are free to use for digital kits, and I used them to create the sequins, gift bows and curled ribbons in this kit. Here is her link: http://thescrappincop.blogspot.com

This kit is also to pay tribute to my sweet Claire. She is turning 1 in only 2 weeks and I cannot believe how fast the time has flown and how much this sweetie has been through. Since her brain tumor removal on August 11th, she has been seizure-free! That is over 6 months of perfection! No new tumors have shown up from her Tuberous Sclerosis disease, and at the moment, she is perfectly healthy and progressing right along with the milestones of where she should be. She will have an EEG next week to determine if we can take her off one of her medications. Thank you all for your prayers and support. We have been truly blessed! I love you sweet Claire Bear! (Here are some pictures I just took of her to use for her birthday announcement).

I hope you all enjoy this kit, and whenever it's time for you to celebrate your birthday then imagine me singing this song to you that my kids sing in their Primary Class at Church:

You've had a birthday, shout hooray!
We want to sing to you today,
One year older and wiser too,
Happy Birthday, to you!
