Happy Birthday Georgia

It's my gorgeous girlie's 15th Birthday today, how that can be when I'm only 21 myself I don't know! But there you go.

I've dropped her & some friends in town for some birthday shopping so this is probably my only chance to get on here today.

I made her a step-card for her birthday and as Georgia is our very own Eco-Warrier and peace loving child I went with the Groovy Hippie theme, which she loved, especially as she's mad on Camper Vans (wants her dad to do one up for her) so this card was spot on!

The DSP's are digi-papers from Country Graphics, as soon as i saw them I knew they'd be just right and the lovely image is a Sassy Studio Design, coloured with PM's. Cardstock is SU! Elegant Eggplant and is a much darker purple in real life, not the best photo but done on my phone, buttons are from my stash.

I also made her a picnic basket, I've been dying to have a go at one of these for ages and bought myself the template from Papertrey. It was easy to follow & I didn't get my knickers in a knot which I usually do when trying to follow instructions, and she was thrilled with it. I wrapped up lots of little items of jewellery & make-up & choccies to go inside.

And finally, a very reluctant picture of the birthday girl herself.

Happy Birthday darling girl xxxx

Great card and basket. Sorry but I don't understand how you can possibly be old enough to have such an adult daughter. It just doesn't work out. Sara xx
