Natalie's bday, a baby layout, BBTB2 and winners announced!

Hi everyone! I've got a lot to share today so I hope you stick around! ;)

So yesterday was my daughter's FIRST birthday! Yep, I officially have a one year old! I can't believe it! Everyone told me that time flies by so much faster once you start having kids, and it is soo true!! I took her to go watch Tangled (she loved it and danced on the singing parts), we did a little bit of Christmas shopping and them came home and she had her 1st taste of birthday cake! Which went everywhere..even her belly button! LOL...She is such a sweet little girl and so much fun to be around! She is my little partner in crime and she just brightens my day! :) She actually just started walking a week before her bday and she is moving like crazy!
She looked so cute with this Panda hat on, I had to get it for her bday.
Told you..cake everywhere!
Natalie and daddy..
I love her! :)

I have a baby layout I made awhile ago but never got around to posting it. I thought today would be the perfect day for it. It's one of those 'blinged out' type of LO's, I wanted it to look really 'fancy' and 'pretty' compared to my usually cutesy style.
It's titled 'Queen of Daddy's Heart'
and Natalie was only 3 days old here, this was the day she came home from the hospital.

I really liked this one, I don't know why I waited so long to post it. The 'Queen' is welded together from the Once Upon a Princess cart and the 'of daddy's' is from Simply Sweet font cart, all of the flourishes are from the Stretch Your Imagination cart and welded to a big circle. I used printed transparencies for the corners and used eyelets to adhere them.

Since we were so busy yesterday I totally forgot to post my BBTB2 card! duh! the challenge was to use either ornament from the Winter Frolic cart and the sentiment 'Deck the Halls'..I didn't have a lot of free time, so my card is kinda simple..but cute! ;p I used the PK Snow Cuties.

A little bit of stickles makes it all better! ;p
Ok, almost done here! :)

I have 2 winners to announce!
The 1st winner is for the EAD Face Stickerz, I got 46 comments and the random winner is..
She said..
The faces are super cute.. I could use them in all the cards i make.. Your cards are super cute..
Woohoo! Congrats Theresa!

My 2nd winner is from the Advent Calendar Blog Hop.I got 222 wonderful comments and I'm so glad I pick the winner randomly because it would be so hard to choose a winner! You all had such sweet things to say! Thank you!  Ok, so the random winner is...
She said..
I love that you used little images - I want to do the same - so if you post the images that would be helpful. I know I only have a couple more days to make mine- I do not have any Peachy Keen stamps and they make the images whimsical and fun.
thanks Sheryl  
Woohoo! Congrats to Sheryl you won the Peachy Keen Princess Faces! yay!

(I will contact each winner, if I don't hear back in one week, I will have to pick another winner.)

Alrighty, you made it through my super long post! Thanks for popping in! Have a great day! :)

I'm so glad that you realize that time is flying oldest is 22 and my youngest is 20...and I can see both of them at 1 as if it was yesterday! in fact now I know why women lie about their age...they really arn't they just still feel as if they are in their 20's because they don't know where the time went!
