Happy 25th Birthday Ashley

Today is my oldest daughter, Ashley's 25th birthday.
Wow, where is the time gone. I know we all say this with each and every birthday our children celebrate…but seriously, where does the time go.

I have to say I have been a very lucky mom, to have had this girl in my life.
She is always there for her family. I can count on her for anything.
She is a cheerleader to us all and has more faith in me then I do in myself.
She is witty, sarcastic, funny, and compassionate.
And yes, mischievous…you can see it in her smile ;)
So Happy Birthday Ashley, we love you.

I was going to make Ashley a birthday card, but if you have seen my post "I'm a Card Hoarder", I have more than enough stock.
So pulled out this cute card for my princess.

I went to Staples Office supply today, well actually I was banished there as Heather and Kristy went to other stores to get me my birthday gifts. But if I am going to be banished to a store, this is one I will volunteer for ;)
While I was browsing around, I spotted these cute little binders. They are exactly like their larger binders, they even work!
Look how miniature they are :)
I had to get one, even if I didn't need one, teehee.
So I picked up 2 of them…look how small they are compared to this pencil.

I am always looking for some paper and a pen when I go to Ashley's so I thought I would alter one of them for her.
I coloured this Pure Innocence girl up with my Copic markers and added "notes" with my label maker.
I also put a pen it it for her.

Onto My Day:
Woke up to thunder, lightning and rain. But it did most of the damage during the night and was finished with this afternoon.
A friend came for a bit of a visit.
Then Heather, Kristy and I went and did some errands.
I wrapped Ashley's birthday gifts.
Totally forgot to pick up my jeep licence stickers…I better do that tomorrow, I only have one more day to do it.
Ashley's boyfriend is taking her to a fancy restaurant tonight and we are going over for cake and to give her her gifts when they are done.
She sent me this photo of her on her way out. See that cute purse, it looks like a book. I gift from her Tyler.
Nice shoe closet in the background of her dressing room eh ;)
Check it out in this post "Closet Makeover"

I am off the enjoy some Birthday cake soon, so I hope you all had a Creative Day :)
