Day 9 and From the Heart Monthly Freebie Challenge

Day 9:  A moment in your day (can be a photo or a photo and words):

This pic is a moment from my day yesterday.  This is my sweet daughter Cass with two of the most adorable babies I've ever seen.  This was my first time getting to meet the precious twins born to one of my favorite cousins, Nick, and his awesome wife Aimee.  Meet Alaina and Brielle - they are 10 months old and they hardly ever stop smiling.  They are just little angels who let me and Cass hold them and play with them for hours, it was just heaven.  Hard to believe that Cass was that little not so long ago.  So that was definitely the highlight of my day yesterday.  :)
Today's creation is an altered coaster that I made for the:

I used this month's freebie that was e-mailed to me for playing along last month (thank you, Faith!), printed on some light DP and cut to the shape of the coaster, then colored with Copic markers and then spritzed all over with a few different shades of pink Glimmer Mists.  I used Paper Mod Podge to apply the entire piece to the coaster, and another layer of Mod Podge on top.  Punched some holes along the top and tied little pieces of ribbon through it.  It has a magnet on the back so it can be stuck on the fridge.  Peace.
