Tomorrow my baby turns 12! Although Cara is my oldest child, she will always be my baby.
I am so blessed to have her in my life. She was born almost exactly one year after my first child was born. Although she will never know her brother on earth, I KNOW he is watching over her. I have always felt that she was given to me to help me through one of the darkest times. And I know how lucky I am to have her.
Her GIFT: For the past three years, Cara has begged for a cell phone. My answer was always---"We will talk about it when you are twelve." I really did not feel that she needed one. True-most of her friends have one but a lot of them go home to an empty house after school. Since I am at home, I didn't want to get her one before she was mature enough to handle it. (You would not believe how many calls we get from friends at 10:30 p.m. on a school night because they have their own phones.)
So, because her birthday is tomorrow---I took all the information she gave me (pink cell phone, text messaging) and created the perfect gift for her:
Materials used: Text Messages (Gina K Designs); whisper white cardstock (Stampin' Up!); brilliance black ink; Copic markers; Hero Arts Gemstones.
