GCD Studios May Theme *Happy B-day Alena*


Yeah, it's time to post my May theme project!! The theme was to make a project using gradient color...so cool! Our inspiration was this:

Today is my sweet baby girl, Alena's 15th birthday so I wanted to do a layout of her for my project. She doesn't look like much of a baby girl anymore does she...gasp!
She brings such JOY to us and I always want her to find JOY in her life...not just happiness or pleasure, but real JOY! I hope you enjoy what I came up with!
Here are some close ups:



I hope you all are feeling JOY in your life today and had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday! It was so amazing to talk to our daughter that is in Paraguay! And now we celebrate today our daughter that is at home with us! Life is GOOD!
Hugs,
Cheryl
