Not only is this week special nationally, but it's a special week in our house too! I become the mother of a teenager which is awesome realising that my little girl is going to be 13!!!!!!!!!!!!! The traits of a teenager are already emerging, (oh joy!) and the notable distaste for pink! However when we went to Disneyworld at Easter I was thrilled to see her get this excited about Donald and Daisy Duck.
However the moment of thinking she was still just my little girl disappeared when only Olivia could turn wearing a Padawan, trainee Jedi cloak into a fashion show!!!!!!
And of course the exuberance of pending teenagerdom shone out..........!
In answer to her moving on to things more trendy and the days when Mum just causes embarrassment I have gone for a card with bling factor and hope that it will stand up to the criticism of teenagers! I've also acknowledged that her teenager status is shared with the Jubilee celebrations and so went for a patriotic colour scheme.
|stampin' up! mixed bunch with sparkle and simply scored scoring tool|
Coincidentally it's fallen in with the Less is More challenge of red, white and blue and so the initial version at the top is for them and the lower version is the finished product for my BIG little girl.
Hope you are enjoying your celebrations whatever they maybe..
Less is more - red white and blue
