Happy Birthday, Kelsey!


Thirteen years ago today, my husband and I got up very early in the morning and headed to the local hospital for a scheduled C-section, and at 8:56 a.m. Kelsey Amanda was born! Thirteen years ago.... THIRTEEN! Geez, where does the time go??? I now officially have two teenagers in my house! All prayers are welcome! LOL

So here's a birthday card for my sweet baby girl today! I might have gone overboard with the bling on the cupcakes, but you only become a teenager once, right? I hope she likes it.

I took some inspiration for the layout from Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge #59, but maybe took a little too much liberty for it to be true to the original sketch.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KELSEY! And thank you Lord God for her precious life!

Have a great day everyone!








Stamps: Cupcake Heaven (Whipper Snapper Designs), sentiment (unknown... I found this unmounted stamp in my studio and have NO idea where it came from!)
