Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy New Year...

Okay I know I am a little late, and I have been neglecting you terribly but I still wanted to wish you the bested in this blessed season.

Now I got the absolutely best Christmas gift ever! You want to know what it is?????


Please allow me to introduce my daughter Ellie. Her adoption was finalized right before Christmas and we couldn't be happier.

Here is the whole family, aren't our children beautiful?


Now I did do a bit of stamping, just a tiny bit last week of the last Elzybell design team challenge. You can find the challenge **HERE** and the rest of the design teams projects **HERE**

What I used:
brilliant blue, green galore, whisper white card stock
my minds eye designer paper
brilliant blue, green galore classic ink pads
white taffeta ribbon

Congratulations! Adoption is a wonderful way of bringing hope to those who have faced uncertainty, especially if they are not babies. Ellie is just beautiful & I am sure she is so pleased to now have a wonderful family to call home. What a wonderful Christmas wish answered!

My husband & his 3 siblings were all adopted as infants. They are not blood related either which is interesting in itself. At that time, medical history was not required besides basic information, so that is the only card in the deck that concerns us. We have a daughter & we worry at times about what her health will be like from her Dad's genetics. As well as his own. We take it a day at a time & enjoy being together as a family should.

Have a blessed New Year & enjoy your family!
