Evelyn's 1st Birthday

Thank you for all the Congrats on the kids graduating.  I managed to down load my pictures on to my computer from the trip but haven't had time to go through and figure out what I may want to post, so today I am sharing a card I made for Evelyn's first birthday and some pictures from her party :)  Many of you that follow my blog this past year know the hard road that this little girl has had to go through to get to this point. Thank you all again for your prayers this past year, she is doing so well, she still has a little problem with her digestion, her Mom says she has many blowouts, but she is thankful that Evelyn loves getting baths so that helps. So thankful for the healing God has done in this little girls life.

I decided to watercolor this image using my Spectrum Aqua markers on watercolor paper.

Here is a closeup of the coloring, I need a bit more practice with these markers but I think it turned out pretty good.

Inky Antics -- Lester, colored w/Spectrum Aqua markers
Papertrey ink - Hodge Podge papers
Taylored Expressions -- Whimsy #'s die
Penny black -- Sprinkles and smiles sentiment stamp
Recollections -- Button Brads
Spellbinders -- classic oval and scalloped oval dies

Here is Evelyn getting ready to sample her cake

I love how she is looking right at my hubby in these pics!

Here she is with the books we got her, Right after my hubby stopped taking pictures and was heading back to his seat, they took the books from her and she started crying so I think she liked them :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope your enjoying a great weekend so far!!
Still working on catching up on your blogs,
