It's Official: She's a Teenager!

Today Rebecca turned 13! She's been dreading it and kept telling us in fact she was turning 12 and a half, as she thinks 13 is unlucky. Maybe so, but she did really turn 13 today, and is now officially a teenager. If we would go by the actual time she was born she wouldn't turn 13 until 00.12 a.m. (since Australia is 8 hours ahead of the Netherlands).

We had a lovely day, her best friend came over in the afternoon and we went to her favourite Thai restaurant for dinner.

Here's the card I made for her. A close-up...

And the whole card. I really love the new lines of My Mind's Eye. They have a lot of detail and quite a bit of glitter too. I particularly like the turquoise colour and so does Rebecca.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Collection) | Chipboard frame: Tattered Angels | Ribbon: Spotlight | Butterly: Jenni Bowlin | Circle Punch: EK Success | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Enjoy the Ride) | Ink: Stampin'Up (Chocolate Chip) | Lace: Spotlight | Border Punch: Martha Stewart | Die: Papertrey Ink (Double Banner)

I hope you all have had a great weekend. Enjoy (if you've got a few hours left of it)!

I love those new MME papers too! I have some hopefully finding their way to me. Your card is gorgeous, but you know what, your daughter and your lovely photo of her just totally shine!
