Happy 1st Birthday Asha

On the 26th of September my boyfriends Niece, Asha, turned One! I cannot believe she is already a year old. She is the most beautiful and sweet little girl and I'm not just be a biased "sort of auntie." Check out this gorgeous photo taken of her at her party!

As it was her birthday I also had to make her a beautiful birthday card. I used a set that is retired (Sorry guys) called "Favourite Teddy Bear" but it was the most appropriate set for the card. I love this set so much and was bummed when it retired! He (the bear) is sooo cute and I've nicknamed him Boris!

I stamped Boris in Timber Brown Stazon onto watercolouring paper and then watercoloured him in Close to cocoa and Chocolate Chip Inks to get all the shading! I added a party hat to him and watercoloured it in lavendar lace. The rest of the card was done in Pretty in Pink and Lavendar lace as these were the colours of the balloons they had chosen for the party.

On the inside of the card I took a Very Vanilla Love Note envelope. Jazzed it up with punches and bling and stuck it to the inside of the card. I put some money in the envelope to be added to her bank account which was opened for her a few days after she was born. Unfortunatly in the heat my Basic Black journaler went psycho and wouldn't work so I had to write with the thick side of the marker. It isn't as neat and perfect as I would usually write for that reason!

How sweet does it look??
During the party Mum and Dad had a cake for her. They decided after blowing the candles out they would let her loose on the cake. She ended up with icing all over herself including in her hair. I have heaps of photos of her looking like a very cute grub and it was hard to chose one. The photo I have chosen was her whilst eating cake and dancing along to the song her dad made up for her. Isn't she sooo cute?
I can't wait to get these printed and scrapbook them!!
Thanks for looking! Have a great day
