Elegant & Enjoying Eight

I love these pictures of my darling daughter; especially the one where she's making an 8 with her fingers.  One month from now, she'll be celebrating another birthday and this layout just reminds me of how far I'm behind on scrapbooking.  LOL!!!!  I'm alright with that though, because it gives me something to look forward to.  Now, maybe in 2011 I'll fill in the years between 6 and 8.
