THT026, WT247, A Day Filled With Love!

This morning at 9:30, our family increased by DD and DSIL adopted an eight year old boy, a brother for their 9 yr. old son and 12 yr. old daughter. The personal and legal ceremony took place in court, and the judge was wonderful! At the end, everyone took pictures of the family with the judge, and each other. The Bailiff even took pics. Then the judge gave our new DGS a special light up pen (which he flipped over), lollipops, a game, and some baseballs. How cool! Afterwards, we went to our DD's for brunch. So happy an occasion, and so much love!!

That's why I had to make a RED card celebration. This one is a case of Cathleen (ctorina) here :, for the THT026 challenge. I reversed the colors, and exchanged the sleigh for a dove. I hope you (and she) like it! This also works for the WT today, and for the RedDivas gallery. This has been a wonderful day, and it continues, as DH has gone to get our 10 yr. old to stay with us for dinner and until his Mom can get him at 8 tonight. Mom has parent meetings all day, and DS is in the play with his students - tonight is the dress rehearsal). We are so lucky!!!

Wow - how wonderful for your family - and what a fortunate boy to be joining such a loving 'large' family!! Congrats to you all Anne!! I love the spellbinders framing on this card - the white dove looks lovely against the red!

Oh what a wonderful day for you and the family Anne!! I am so excited for you!! What a gift for this boy to become part of a loving family!!

Your card is stunning!! I love the dove against the red and the border you created. Is that a spellbinders die or is it a punch? Love it and will have to get that one. Gorgeous creation!!
