Where do the years go? Today is my eldest's 21st. It doesn't seem two minutes since I first held her in my arms. Photos capture such special memories, so here are a couple of photos of her when she was little. I made the smocked dress for her 1st birthday, I'd never done any dressmaking before, and taught myself how to do it from a book, I now realise that smocking as a first attempt was quite a challenge - I loved that dress. My daughter has been teased lots of times over the years over the pouting photo - I realise now she was practising the "look"!
Now look at the beautiful young woman she has become (here with my youngest, last month)
Onto the card I made her. Kenny K stamp, heat embossed, coloured with Promarkers. Matted with card stock, backing papers are Basic Grey (think Boxer), edged with gold leafing pen - also used for the numerals. Red is her favourite colour, hence why I chose these colours.
I was really quite pleased with how I had achieved the shading on the characters face, so have put it here in a close up too. My daughter loves her ipod, so I thought this was a very appropriate image to use for her card.
Well, I'm off to see what my daughter would like to do today, and will return to do some bloghopping later on. Have fun everyone.
