Happy birthday Manda!!

Today is my sister Manda's birthday. And how does she choose to spend the day?? She's coming here to do a photo shoot of my wee girl. Thanks for that Manda. It's cool - we'll hit up TCBY for a little birthday treat later! Yum!! :)


Happy birthday Manda! We love you!!

A shot of the two of us on Maid of the Mist a couple of weeks ago. We do rock the self-portrait! :)
And, of course, her birthday cards. One from me and of course one from Maya. My girl loves her cardmaking.
My card uses this super cute Tilda with Ladybug image a friend stamped off for me. You can find her at Magnolia-licious if you must have her in your collection. This card is based on a Mojo Monday Sketch as well (Mojo turns 100 - Day 1).

And here is Maya's super cute creation. She had to change things up this time and go for a coloured background - still no interest in patterned paper though. :) She stamped & coloured the image herself. It's hard to tell but it is Expecting Sophie G from Riley & Company. No reason for this image other than it is the one she picked. My girl is random. She picked the flower and button and we were done!


And I of course cannot let her day go by without giving a shout out to her photography business. Seriously if you are local (or at least somewhat local) you really need to book a session with her. The girl has talent. She travels around Southwestern Ontario servicing your photography needs so check her out on her blog and remember the name Amanda Stratton - she is going to be famous one day!! Her new site is up and running now too. Check it out here.

  1. Your Tilda is absolutely adorable, but I'm afraid Maya's work steal's the show! How precious that she is taking an interest in stamping and coloring and following in her mommy's footsteps...
