Happy Birthday Charlie!!

Not quite sure who stole the last 16 years from me but it only seems like yesterday that I took the leap into motherhood, and today the baby that changed my life turned sweet 16!! 

Fortunately for her, as she was born in the pre digital camera age I don't actually have a baby photo on my pc to share, but here is a recent one of her that was taken earlier this year at my sister's wedding. I know I am biased but I think she's beautiful!

Of course I had to make a card for her and as she loves all thinks Emo I used Emo Willow Gift from Make It Crafty. Normally I like to go a bit mad with embellishments but decided to keep this one CAS, just adding a sentiment using Craft Artist. Now she is 16 of course a new grown up world begings to open  there are certain things she is now legally allowed to do. I am relieved to say the one she's joked about most is that she is  able to walk in a shop and buy a lawnmower! I couldn't resist adding that to the card to make her smile (and it did!).

I couldn't be prouder of the young woman she has become and wish her every happiness for her 16th year. I'm sure it will be an exciting one!!

Happy birthday Charlie!

All my love
