Happy UnBirthday!

Actually it really is my daughter’s Birthday in these layouts, so “UnBirthday” is a lie. However, we did celebrate some of it not on her Birthday, so maybe it is correct.

For her 17th Birthday she wanted to spend it with her friends.

But, first she had to open her gifts! Don’t you just love our bird in the picture? She had to be part of the festivities too!

After we opened gifts, we headed out with her friends for a day of shopping. We started at the mall and ended at Kendra Scott. When I was 16 my Mom started a tradition in which I got my first diamond ring. It was small and you could barely make out the diamond, but every year we would trade it in for a larger one. Unknowingly, I started a similar tradition with my daughter. Kendra Scott offers a 50% discount off of one piece of jewelry on your birthday. She picked out earrings!

Do you have any traditions? Please share in the comments! I would love to know :-).

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Turn About Birthday Layout

Both of my boys have their birthday exactly a week a part. Naturally, we take similar pictures to document the day and I use the same sketch. This year I thought it would be fun to use the Concord and 9th Turnabout stamp set to create the layouts.

Differences

Though the sketch is the same, the color combo is not. For my oldest I chose earth tones. For my youngest I chose primary colors. The Turnabout stamp was fun to use and really helped the layouts come together fast. To learn how to turn check this out:
