Amber's Craft and Stuff Challenge #12 - Teen Celebration

Good Morning Bloggers,

So, I feel like I've been M.I.A. I thought I posted an entry over the weekend about my wonderful time visiting the extended family down in WV, but I guess I must have dreamed that part. I'll post that this evening when I have more time.

This week's challenge over at Amber's Crafts and Stuff is all about Teens. To honor and celebrate the teens in our lives. Well, as you know, I don't actually have any children. My younger cousins are both in the twenties and Miss A is only 10. So as I thought about what I could possibly do (ok, I have to admit, I actually did a project for another week so this was a pre-made layout), I ended up choosing to showcase a layout I did for my little sister. There is actually a HUGE age difference between my younger sister and myself. I was just shy of my 16th birthday when she was born and she's basically grown up as an only child. She was actually born the day after I returned to WV from visiting my mother for Christmas break. I knew it...and I was woken up by a phone call from my super proud stepfather announcing the birth of his clone. (LOL) Here's the layout that I did with the letter and one of the pictures that they sent to me afterwards.

Some days I still can't believe that she's already 14 years old. It seems like only yesterday she was learning to stand and walk. I still call her my "munchkin" and against my wishes she still calls me her "sissy", but I wouldn't have it any other way. Here's a more recent picture of my sister.

To join in on this challenge, head over to Amber's blog and enter your project about your favorite teen!

Stay Crafty
