Happy 17th Birthday Kristy

Today is my baby's 17th Birthday.
I know I say this when it is any one of my daughters birthdays, but seriously where the heck does the time go?!?
Everyone told me I had it too easy with my first two, as they didn't give me any grief (besides being a bit cheeky from time to time) and that Kristy would be my trouble maker.
Watch out for that one, she is going to be a handful. They would say.
But you know what, she was just as loving and respectful as Ashley and Heather.
I know I am one of the lucky ones.
Not only do I love my daughters, I also love to be around them. And I think they enjoy being around Wayne and I as well :)

Here is the Birthday card I made for Kristy.
I was going to give her the cup cake girl card, but when I saw this image, I knew I had to make her this one. 

Perfect for my Kristy, or KDawg as Wayne and the girls nicknamed her. She has been working decorating cakes for her Co-op in school.

Here is the inside of her card. I put a small envelope on the opposite page and popped some American money in there for our next trip.

 Awwww this is my beautiful birthday girl.
I don't remember looking this gorgeous in high school. Actually I have never looked this gorgeous. I think my girls got all the good genes in our family.

Remember yesterday I was talking about decorating Kristy's birthday cake. Kristy wanted a Luigi cake. My girls love video games. More of the scary ones, but they also like the ol'school ones as well.
Sharon had a Mario cake pan from when her son was a little boy. So we changed the colours to look like Luigi.
I think it turned out awesome.
It does look like Mario stole Luigi's clothes, but she was ecstatic about it, and that's all that matters.

Onto My Day:
Kristy wanted to go to Applebees for her birthday dinner.
So we invited her boyfriend, Blake, and had a nice evening.
Then the rest of the family came by for cake after. A wonderful day and evening with family and friends.

Hope you all had a creative Saturday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Tracy you know how I love your cards, and there isn't a dud among them, but I think you hit this one out of the ballpark! I L-O-V-E it. How stinkin' cute is it, she looks like a little french pastry chef.
    Beautiful cakes, very yummy looking. What a blessing to love your children and enjoy being around them. I wish that is something that is common place instead of the rarity it is.
    Glad you all had a lovely day and I wish Kristy a great birthday.
