Happy Birthday Kaitlyn

Today is my darling Grandaughter's' 3rd birthday, I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by. I remember when she was born as it was Fathers Day, I was having lunch with Esther's' Mum and Dad, honestly us Grandparents were like cats on hot bricks every time the phone rang from other relatives asking if Kaitlyn had been born, desperate to get them off the line so when the news came through we could relax (ha ha) when it did come through Sid and Jane were on one phone with me on the other bombarding Brad with questions. The birth of Kaity was made more poignant to me as she was born 4 months after my Mum had died, which is why she has Beatrice as one of her names, she has truly been a blessing and is growing up into an adorable person (I am biased but I'm allowed to be). Anyway guess who features in both of my layouts today? Yes it's the birthday girl.

I've had the Thomas K&Co papers kicking around for while and have been waiting for the ideal photos to make use of them. The opportunity came when I was looking after Kaity a couple of weeks ago, she loves going on the mechanical rides at the local shopping centre and she made a beeline for Thomas, well I couldn't waste a photographic opportunity could I? The Chipboard trains are from Creative Imaginations.
My second layout was finished at a class I attend at Pickleberry Papercrafts last Friday using Prima papers. I knew the title was going to be Attitude and was a bit worried about my choice of pictures but although they are of Kaity I think that they work quite well. She enjoyed posing and I think it shows a little bit of girly attitude coming from a 3 year old, well that's my take on it. I hope you enjoy looking at them, I look forward to your comments.
