Happy 15th Birthday

Morning Stampers...

This card was made for my Daughters 15th birthday back on the 31st, 
this is one that took a long time to come up with, it is hard to put things together when your mojo is lacking, or in my case gone competely

But i am really happy with the out come
Sorry for the photo, i had to be quick and get the photo before she ate the lollies, as i forgot to take a photo before i gave it to her, well almost didn't get the photo, some of the lollies are missing.

here is the card open
And a side view
See i even forgot the sentiment.

now for what has been happening in my life....well where do i start.
I now have a new family member, i have taken in a 15yr old boy who needed a family to love him, 
we are all so blessed to have the love and support from our families, but there are those out there who don't have that basic need of life. I couldn't turn my back on someone who needed this love, and as a mum i have alot of love to share around.
We all have been busy adjusting to the new addition, and there have been many meetings with winz and social workers to make it all happen.
He wasn't in school, getting regular food nor basic needs of life........ access to fresh water and toilets.
All this while living with a family member.
But since he has been living with us he is now in school, with big plans for the future. a dry and clean room and all the food he wants...being a teenager he likes his food.

He knows he has been given a golden opportunity, and he is very keen to make the most of it, or the only other choice is go back to that family member.

So yes i have been busy, and with life starting to settle, i should be able to get back into the swing of creating.

See you all soon

    Well ... Sharna ... that is such a special gift you have given to this 15yr old boy. I am so touched by your story ... and I am praying that this will be a wonderful blessing to the boy ... and to all your family. Good on you! Love the card. Still have NOT done an easel card. I am hopeless! Must do one soon! Hugs xxaxx PS Missing mojo must be contagious! I had such trouble last week!
