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!
