Sweet Sixteen!!!


My baby is 16 years old today!!! It's such an exciting day!! She is so beautiful and so grown up!!! We were laughing this morning while she was getting ready for school. I was joking and asking where my baby went....where is she??? She's gone!!! As you might remember, my husband works nights driving truck so it's always a guess whether he will be home before she goes to school or not, but this morning he was able to get back and see her! We gave her a gorgeous white gold ring with a heart shaped pink sapphire in it and she LOVES it!!!! Whew!! She couldn't wait to show the girls at school!!

Here is the card I made for her!!! Since she will be learning to drive now (my gosh, can that be right?), I used my Elzybell in her Car stamp!! I thought pink and black would be a cute colour scheme for it too! I don't know if you can tell, but I used my new Clear Spica gel pen from MFT all over it and it's SO sparkly!!



This is a picture of Emileigh one day when she was in the yard at our old house riding her BICYCLE!!! Isn't she so adorable!!! She liked pink even then, as you can see!! And now she'll be driving a MOTOR VEHICLE..........aaack!!!

For her birthday, we are taking 5 of her girlfriends and my parents to a nice restaurant on Saturday night to celebrate and then the girls are coming back here to sleep over. They are excited to get dressed up for dinner, so I'll be sure to take lots of pics and post some next week.



Now Emileigh is to get all the credit for her invitations. They were totally her design and colour choices!! She knew that she wanted to have pocket cards and she chose the Basic Grey papers to use......she's got good taste, what can I say??? We used the Tres Jolie set by Lizzie Anne Designs and the invitation stamp is by SU. The girls thought they were 'awesome'!



So although I feel old today.........and I feel as though my own sixteenth birthday was not so long ago.....I'm so excited for Emileigh!! I'm proud of the young lady she is becoming and I'm thrilled to watch her grow and mature! No matter how old she gets, she will still be my baby.....and my best friend.

Hug your babies today and tell them how much you love them!!! Oh and stamp them something too!!! Hahahaha!

Happy Birthday to Emileigh!! I find that the kids are growing up so fast... my oldest will be 13 in a few weeks... how is it possible that I am old enough to have a teenaged son?????

The invitations are gorgeous!!!

How beautiful is this post, it made me cry. Happy birthday to Emileigh she is a lovely young lady. What a cute photo of her for you to scrapbook, have you already? How about a now and then LO? I did that last year when my handsome son turned 16. Boys don't get the fancy Sweet 16s LOL>
Have a super dinner out and what a lucky young lady to have a mommy like you. Yes, our kids should always call us "Mommy." Great invites and car card.

Awwww...happy birthday to Emileigh, Kim!! I don't even want to THINK about my kids being 16. Quite frankly, it terrifies me to think of one of them being behind the wheel of a car. LOVE the invitations and the Elzy. You're going to make me pull those out aren't you? I do have a couple I haven't used yet. (And you are NOT old.)

Trina said...

Her invitations turned out so beautiful!! Looks like she is going to follow in your footsteps!
I didn't forget about you either, I think your card today is great too, Kimmie. Hope she has a great birthday!

The invitations are beautiful, just like your daughter! She has good taste like her mom!! I don't always have time to comment on every post (or even visit daily!) but your Magnolia cards are so cute! You do such nice work on them! And, since my oldest is only 4 and I'm probably the same age as you...you are so not old! I'll be ancient when my son is 16, yikes!!!
