No Longer A Tween

Hi! Today, my youngest has a birthday and she is no longer a tween. It is also her "golden" birthday and she thinks that is so cool. She is officially a teenager and while that is exciting to think about, it makes me feel sad too that she is growing so fast. My inspiration comes from her love of the color teal and turtles.


I used PK Corny faces for this cutie and even pulled out some old stamps from Stampin' Up for the confetti and the sentiment. 


For one of her presents I created this fun cupcake tag. I was in the Hallmark store with my Mom the other day and they have all of these toppers actually attached to the bag and they are really cute. Of course, I thought well I'm sure I could make that:)

Recipe:
A2 white cardbase
Banner - Birthday Bash 1"
Turtle - Birthday Bash 1.94"
Face - Peachy Keen Corny Faces
Grass - Paper Dolls for Everyday 3.27"
Sentiment - Stampin' Up
Confetti - Stampin' Up
Cupake Tag - Birthday Bash 4.23"
Black ink, Stickles, Copic Markers, Twine, White gel pen

It is both exciting and sad as they get older, isn't it? Today is my youngest son's birthday also! He is officially now in double digits, turning 10.

The cupcake topper is very cute-I want to try something like this for the next kiddo's birthday. And I loved the turtle and banner-very cute :)
