Happy New Year

I hope all of you had a wonderful New Year Celebration with family and friends.

Bethanie was blessed to see her best friend that she had while we stationed in Biloxi together.  Hannah is now in Tennessee and came to meet us at my Dad's house in Georgia when we went to see him in the first week of our Christmas break. the first page shows Bethie and Hannah now, the right page shows them when they were  much younger in Biloxi.  Look Beth is bigger than Hannah! Hannah is 4 inches taller than her now!

In these pages I used:
Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday background paper
Cosmo Cricket Gretel papers
Basic Grey Bling
Imagine Better Together on the right page.
Hello Kitty Font and shadow fused with gypsy
Lots of brown (chestnut roan) chalk ink (cat's eye)
The left page I am submitting to MY Pink Stamper for Design Team call. :) The right page doesn't apply because there are too many colors. (I needed to use pink, green, brown and one other color.)

It has been a long time since I have served on a Design Team, the last time I did was with Jana Eubanks on Gettin Sketchy.  I had to give it up because I was looking for a job.  Soon after I left the DT the owner closed the blog down. 

Other great news for Bethanie! Another best friend she met while we were stationed in Hawaii came here from Tuesday to Friday.  We had been planning it for weeks that he would come during the  holiday so that she would have a great 18th Birthday!  It was a giant surprise because she did not know that Carl was coming from Jacksonville. Carl is all she asked for when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday and Christmas, so her wish came true.  These guys are so close, and with technology today, distance is not a factor in keeping friendships. Yes he is 6'1" and Beth is 4'11.5" tall. She gets her height from her mom!

I hope all you have had a wonderful New Year. I know my wonderful daughter has. 

My husband and I went on a dinner date Thursday night in honor of our twenty-third anniversary.  We had a lovely dinner at McGuire's in Pensacola.  My favorite picture of the evening...

I hope everyone has had as nice a Holiday Season as we have and that I wish all of you the best for the new year.
