Now with my DT duties out of the way I wanted to wish a special someone a very happy birthday!


Tiffany is my third daughter who recently graduated from high school and is preparing for a career in law enforcement. She has a new job working very closely with our local Police Department and she just LOVES it!! I think she was made for this field of work and she will be very good at it.

Tiffany is on the right with her good friend Jessica!

Tiffany is a sweet and fun loving young lady who has made me so proud. It is never hard to get her to smile, even if she thinks she is mad at me!! She loves to laugh and have a good time, yet she always tries to set a good example for her friends. We love her so much and hope that she has a very special today!
She decided on her own to go PARASAILING today to celebrate her birthday! This scares me to death! But, since she is 19 and an adult, I didn't try to stop her! I will try and share photos of that with you at a later date! I am sure she will have a good time!

Using my new favorite technique of coloring on a black and white image printed on acetate, I made this card for her birthday...

The photo was a random image I found on the internet. I used my new "flying high" stamp that came in the Unity In-Store only kit called 100% Happiness. The rest of the sentiment was computer generated. The DP is from We R Memory Keepers.

She is going to love this card since it will always remind her of her 19th birthday when she went parasailing! Later today we are going to have a cookout with her friends on the lake and spend some time in the pool, on the boat or kayaks and jet skiing! It sounds like a fun packed day... just the kind Tiffany likes!

I wanted to leave you with some of the layouts that I have done of Tiffany in the past. I can't believe that it has been 19 years since she was born. My how time flies!!

Sorry for the long post, but thanks for taking a glimpse into my life and celebrating with me my special daughter's birthday!

I hope you have a great day and may your bucket overflow with many special memories of the loved ones in your life!
