A Birthday Girl & A Sketch Challenge!

Today my baby turned 4!! So hard to believe how fast the last 4 years have passed.  Azaria was born at 3.30am in Invercargill Hospital after a two hour ambulance ride (one of the few down sides of living in an isolated mountain resort town!).  She is such a blessing and a delight to us!  Just like me she has a love of pretty stationary and paper!

Beautiful Azaria Jade
I decided to play along with the latest sketch #6 over at The Paper Bakery.  I loved this sketch and used the lovely Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper collection.  I decided to keep this layout pretty simple with embellishments, as I just love the paper so much.  Lately I've been pushed for time, so have enjoyed using one collection to make a page.  My layout is a photo of my sister in law, husband and I at last years fundraiser winter ball for the upgrade of our local town hall.  A pretty special event as Shaun and I met in in stage show that played there.

Here is my layout:

And here is the sketch:

Thanks for looking!  We're off for a family dinner for Azaria, have a blessed day x
