Too Pretty to Unwrap

Today Beth (the best babysitter in the world) is celebrating her 22nd birthday. I'd promised her that I would bake her cake. I'm not the best cake maker in the world, but the willingness and effort counts for something right. Beth came over just before school pick-up so she could join me. Before collecting the children I'd already given her her card.

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Cardstock
Patterned Paper + Chipboard Die-Cuts: Cosmo Cricket 'Early Bird'
Embossing Folder: Quickutz 'Retro Diamonds'
Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink 'Giga Guide Lines'
Ink: Staz'On (Timber Brown), Stampin'Up (Real Red)
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Border Punch: Fiskars
Button: Making Memories 'Great Escape'
Ribbon: Paperchase
Rhinestones: KaiserCraft
Bakers Twine: local supermarket

After school pick-up the children gave Beth her present. She thought it was too pretty to unwrap. It was only a small gift so instead of using wrapping paper I used scrapbooking paper to wrap it.

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Cardstock
Patterned Paper: Studio Calico
Button: Making Memories 'Great Escape'
Border Punch: Martha Stewart 'Doily Lace'
Tag: Newsagent
Clear Stamp: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Staz'On (Timber Brown)
Ribbon: from my birthday present!

Finallhy I also wanted to show you a picture I took of Rebecca yesterday. Rebecca has had her braces on for nearly two months now and the difference is quite amazing. Despite the fact that she's got braces on, her smile is still as big!

Thank you for being my model, Rebecca. I love you!
