A BIG Celebration!

Do you remember turning 18?? I do....and a week after I graduated from high school I had moved out and had gotten a full-time job. NOT the future I want for my daughter by any stretch of the imagination. Her dad and I have gone to great (and expensive) pains hoping to keep her at home and in school. Currently she doesn't have the mindset to traipse off to college, she's pretty nestled down here at home and is happy (and more importantly EAGER) to attend a local college. That's more than ok with me - I shudder to think at how much I'd miss her.
When I found this stair-step card tutorial (yes, it's another one from Splitcoasters), I made one for a b-day celebration. As soon as Creepella saw this (in March), she said, "Mom, I'd BETTER get one of these cards for my birthday week!!" Ahhhh - I've raised a spoiled brat - I'm so proud!!
Here's a quiz - do you see any stamping??? Well there's a wee bit on the card but mostly, MOSTLY it's an entire package of 3-D stickers strategically placed through-out the steps. Bright pink for my baby girl and ta-dahhhh, we're done!!

Stamps - CTMH
Ink - Memento
CS - Papertrey Ink
Punches - Martha's loopy border & Marvy's scalloped circle
3D Stickers - Michael's $1-bin

Brianne's 18, when did that happen? Wasn't she just starting to crawl yesterday? Yikes Kathy where did the time go... Our babies are all grown up and if I say so myself, they turned out pretty darn good. Love you pook.
