Happy birthday.....

Today my daughter turned 15, it's amazing how time flies, it feels like only yesterday she was a wee baby.

Anyway, I spent today making her presents.   I was meant to do them Saturday but lacked inspiration, was going to do them last night but a visitor turned up so last minute it was.   I rather underestimated how long it would take and spent the best part of the day completing my 'project'.   Quite conveniently because it's for a birthday it fits with the Just Add Ink challenge this week to just add birthdays.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  The main photo in the middle shows three of the presents she will receive.  Top left, a top note handbag I designed by using two top note dies cut out of chocolate chip and a very small box they are attached to.  Inside the handbag are two "vouchers" - the first a fake drivers licence to signify a promise to pay for her learner's when she has studied, and the second a hand made Jay Jays voucher (amount unspecified).     The second and third top pictures are of another wee gift certificate holder in baja breeze and it's contents, a handmade voucher for a hamburger phone.   Along the bottom the two photos on the left are of the Supre gift certificate (again handmade) and it's holder in blushing bride and the final photo is of her last present which is a copy of the road code - wrapped in some brown paper I rescued from the rubbish bin and then randomly stamped.

I can't wait to finally give them to her after dinner and see her reaction.   Anyway hope you all like them. 

Happy stamping
