Great Excitement

Well, we've got great excitement happening in our house at the moment for two reasons:
  1. DD is excited because today is her birthday and she is now DD13! Yes, my baby is officially a teenager - which is exciting and sad for me at the same time. But I am so proud of the young lady she is becoming and love spending time with her - she seems to have inherited a rather warped sense of humour from somewhere (can't imagine where/who!!!! :P) and we have tons of laughs together. 
  2. I am excited because I have a new craft room! Up until now I was squished on a small desk in a corner of my bedroom and stuff has been overflowing every which way I look (new stamps, papers etc seem to magically appear!), so I have now moved in to a craft room! After a very fun trip to IKEA (gotta love it!) and hours spent with my wonderful SIL helping assemble bookcases, I have started moving "schtuff" in! Once I am more settled in there I will get some photos up here for you to see my new slice of heaven!
So, naturally, these two events converged in that I needed to "christen" my new craft room by making a card - and had need of a card for DD's birthday! What could be more perfect? 

I found some great wrapping paper that has brightly coloured balloons all over it and also some fab take out boxes (for goodie bags) also covered in bright balloons ... so naturally I have used those gorgeous balloons from Crazy for Cupcakes (one of those sets that magically appeared, LOL!) and some bright, cheerful colours. Here tis:



Unfortunately the night I had the crystal effects drying was a cold one ... so cold that it has cracked the CE!!! Luckily DD understood. The sentiment stamp from PTI expressed my feelings perfectly ...


Thanks for dropping in.

Cheers
Kez

So glad you have a new craft room! Every girl should have a craft room. I hope you spend many happy hours in it! My baby turned 13 in April ... so I can relate to the "bitter/sweet" feelings that go with that milestone! I have missed popping by to visit ... but family issues have been a big distraction over the last few weeks. I am looking forward to scrolling back through your recent posts and checking out your fab inspiration ... but won’t have time to comment on each! Hugs xxaxx

You must be lovin' your new craft room... I'm so tickled for you. Tell your daughter Happy BDay, 13 is such a special age for girls.

I've so missed seeing your creations!!! They are all so "Kez Awesome"!!! I love your 'unconvention projects'! Such a fabulous idea and I'll just bet loads of fun for all!!!

Hugs, Carla
