It's your day, Celebrate - Happy Birthday!

The seahorse is my favorite sea creature!  I colored this cute one with the balloons from Birthday Seahorse by Imagine That digis by Kris.  The sentiment came from TLC, Create.  I embossed the backgrounds and added some blue chalk ink to the them to give them a little water- like texture.  I also have some blue gems/bling for some extra dimension and sparkle.  I'm excited to display this one today since it is my birthday, hehe.  My daughter came home and was so sweet to have a carrot cake waiting for me when I came home from work tonight.  And muffins for breakfast.  My son is going to cut my grass tomorrow morning so I couldn't ask for a better day :) And to top it off we have plans to have dinner together and my sister-in-law and her family want to join.  I'm truly blessed.
