Happy Gotcha Day Nevaeh

Sometimes it seems hard to believe that
it has already been 4 years.

4 years since sitting on this bench at Disneyland's California Adventure

when we got the call that brought 
you into our lives.

You still love to watch this video I made for you
in December 2008 when were weren't sure how much longer you would be with us.

And this one from April 2009 when you started doing unsupervised visits
and weekend visits with your birth parents.

And this one from July 2009 right before court when we thought you 
would be leaving us for good.

I am still in awe of the miracle that occurred and the 
sacrifice that your birth mom and dad made
by allowing us to adopt you.

Last Gotcha Day was one of the best days every
because I finally knew that there would be many, many more celebrations to come.

This day will always hold a special place in my heart 
my sweet little girl.

Gotcha Day Tradition

First I would like to say a big
to all who donated or shared our iPad 2 give-away so far.

It is still going on until December 15th and you can click here to enter and 
see all the great gifts you could receive with only a $5.00 donation 
or sharing on your blog or Facebook page.

But I also wanted to share with you a great opportunity
you have to make really cute scrapbook pages 
and cards by using this amazing software

This new version  just came out last month 
and it is sooo fun to use.

Plus, if you purchase it using the code STMMMS69334 
you receive $10 off and a $10 coupon to use on digital paper kits 
and you receive 4 entries into our iPad give-away 
because every time the software is purchased using 
We receive $20 towards our adoption.

My Memories also has a fun Facebook page and blog
where they have challenges and contest.

This weeks contest is called Family Traditions
and I have entered our tradition of going to Disneyland every year 
on December 13th because that is Nevaeh's Gotcha Day.

If you would like to read more about this fun day that we had
you can go here .

The other thing I love about this company is you can use
the digital paper they offer for free or 
other kits you can find for free all over the internet.
Right now they have this free kit called Santa

Below you fill find some of the other
stuff I have been doing this past month while learning
to use this new program.

The layouts above our my first attempt
at making my very own personalized Christmas Cards.

Another plus is that I can upload these layouts to 
any of the popular printing companies:
Shutterful, Snapwish, Winkflash, Picaboo, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and on and on.

And at Costco I can print out a 12x12 page and stick it in a regular scrapbook.
I can even add embellishments after it is printed.

The list of possibilities are endless.

It would make my day if you would share
this wonderful opportunity with others.

Then they can become obsessed with digital scrapbooking too :)
