My Birthday Girl.....

I took this picture of my girl on her birthday, right after she got home from school. Let me just tell you how blown away by her teacher and aides' sweetness! She was wearing this crown, had balloons tied to her chair, and tons of presents. Her teacher and a few of the aides bought her an outfit, books on tape, stickers, and a new backpack. They also had all the kids in the class make a birthday card for her. I was near to tears helping her open everything......the kindness that has been bestowed upon my girl.......just literally makes my heart swell. How lucky we are to have found such a phenomenal school.


I used Noel's Lovely Days kit for this LO. The butterflies were cut using my Spellbinders. I added a few pearls to their bodies too.

I know most 14 year old girls don't wear paper crowns anymore...... She is so joyful wearing her princess crown! It couldn't have meant any more to hear if it came bearing diamonds!

Have a wonderful Sunday! The sun is shining here, so I guess I should soak up some of that sunshine! : )

Wow! What a beautiful page and memory. Thats so nice of your school to treat your daughter so special. I love the 'ticket' border, the ribbon, the abc paper, the whole page is just so beautifully put together.

You definitely struck gold with this school and teacher!!!! Your daughter looks so happy and proud of that crown...absolutely nothing wrong with wearing it!!!!
Before kids, I taught in Cicero...self-contained EMH classroom...loved it and the kids...how I miss teaching but right now it just doesn't fit in to life's schedule.
