My Baby turned 22

What happened?!?
When did time speed up? When did my oldest daughter stop wanting me to pick her up? When did she stop running into my arms every time she saw me?
When did she grow up, to be this beautiful,caring, thoughtful, loving young lady?
I am so proud of this girl. She is everything I wish I was, and more.
Love you Ashley, and Happy Birthday.
 Here is the card I made her. 
Ashley is my fashion girl. She loves everything to do with style.
She LOVES shoes, make  up, nail polish and scented lotions.
I thought this image was perfect for her.
 Her is a close up of the image.
I put some of my new Copics to use today :)
I added some tiny pearls as the buttons to her jacket.
 Here is the dimension shot.
Onto My Day:
I was so busy today.
The girls and I went shopping. Can you believe it!!!
We just spent our vacation at Mall of America and shopped the whole time. Then they needed to check out a couple of stores for some extras for Ashley's birthday gift.
We picked her up a Dairy Queen cake for dessert. She went out for dinner with her boyfriend Tyler, then she wanted to come back home for her Birthday Cake :)

We are staying home this weekend and not going to our camp/cottage. There are many forest fires and the smoke is pretty thick around there. Our camp neighbour says he can't see across the lake the smokey haze is pretty thick.
It is suppose to rain (which is good) so I figured we would just smell smoke and have to sit inside most of the weekend, and I have a lot I can do at home.

Hope you all had a great day, and have an excellent weekend.
