Sweet 16!

My niece, Elizabeth, turned sixteen on Friday...sweet 16!  I played along with the Just Us Girls sketch challenge.  I love all the bits and pieces on the sketch...I was very pleased on how it turned on on this card...and it matched her ring (in the bottom left hand corner) too!
Ingredients:  Basic Grey DSP; Pebbles Chipboard; Jillibean Soup Bean Sprout; PTI Mega Embellishments, Mixed Messages and Banner Die; Kaiser Kraft Gems; Stampin' Up Melon Mambo Cardstock.

And...now...lots of photos from a fun family birthday celebration in Elizabeth's honor.  The birthday girl....

 A birthday kiss for the birthday girl from Marcel:
Lots of love for Marcel from Uncle Neal...love those tummy strawberries.  Can you hear Marcel, "Do it again? This many more times Uncle Neal!"
 Cuddle time with Uncle Neal and Pumpkin...
Nana and Madeleine...relaxing.
Time to sing Happy Birthday...we had to sing twice because Marcel, forever the attention getter, blew out the candles the first time!
Some good looking cousins...a few more inches and Ryan will be taller than his cousins!
