Happy Birthday to our Daughter

Yes it's our daughters 20th birthday today.  Yes, I am still trying to get my head around the fact we no longer have any teenagers and that our baby is 20. :-0  We don't get to celebrate with her as she is working hard down in Brisbane….so I hope the customers are all in their happiest of moods for her. I made her a starburst card (told you would see a few of these while I use up my scraps).  I have dragged out my sewing machine and added some straight stitching and zig zag to the joins.  Finished with a touch of bling.

Since we couldn't be there with her and she lives in a room by herself I thought I would send a birthday party in a box.

I have crammed in decorations, water balloons blown up, chips, chocolates, lollies, party hats, whistles that unfurl when blown, bubble blowers, popcorn, a miniature game of Trouble (like Ludo) and birthday confetti.  I tried to find some form of cake/cupcake sealed in a package but no luck.  

Have a wonderful day everyone.
