Happy Birthday, to My Baby! :)

My baby girl is turning 11 today...oh my! I have absolutely NO idea how this happened, because I feel like it was just yesterday that she was starting Kindergarten.  The years just evaporate, so I had better get busy on my scrapbooks...but I digress...on to the birthday girl!

She is a lover of all things yellow, and basketball, and Blackhawks...which leaves this momma with a whole lotta nothing when it comes to stamps, lol.  Lucky for me she also adores turtles!  I scooped up an adorable set from Lawn Fawn and the patterned papers from my Simon Says Stamp Card Kit from last fall with the Lawn Fawn papers included, and got to work with the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches...

I ADORE this sketch SO much!  LOVE these papers with fall color in them as well.  There isn't any yellow here, but I know she will love that cute little guy bringing her a gift!

He actually used to have a heated bottle on his back from a get well set...

That was easy to change up for sure--it is still there under the present.  ;)  I added some color to the image with the ShinHan Touch Twin Alcohol Marker in Sap Green.

This sentiment is from one of my favorite Birthday My Acrylix sets from Close to My Heart, Joyful Birthday.

I am linking this up with Lawnscaping Challenges for their pattern paper challenge.  :)
Sorry for the missing links! 

OH!  And Happy Birthday, to my big girl!!!  Just remember, you are not 11 until after you go to bed tonight, lol...I get one more day of your 10-year-old hugs!  ;)
