Ismaki challenge 27

Well I loved this challenge I was looking for a good layout for my Daughter's 18th card and this was prefect. This is the Ismaki challenge 27 I used papers from papermania's creative tones, Raspberry champagne, then some lace paper from my stash. I added images printed for me from Vanessa, which I painted with watercolours. I've added some red gems on the cushion and dark red ribbon . I made tag and added quickutz lemonade letters, then added ribbon and a brad with back cut off. Inside I have made a little book with a poem and next to each verse a picture of Nicki as she's grown up. The poem is

We look at you today and see the same beautiful eyes that looked at us with love when you were a baby.
We look at you today and see the same beautiful mouth that made us cry when you first smiled at us when you were a baby.
It was not long ago that we helf you in our arms long after you fell asleep and we just kept rocking you all night long.
We look at you today and see our beautiful daughter no longer a baby but a beautiful person with a full range of emotions and feelings and ideas and goals.
Every day is exciting as we continue to watch you grow and we want you to always know that we are so proud of the woman you've become.
We love you every minute of every day we love being your parents.
Congratulations on your 18th birthday. Wish you were here to give you a big birthday hug. Have a great day Angel.

It isn't her birthday till Saturday, but she's off today on holiday with her best friend Natalie and her family. They are off to Spain, it's the first time she been on a plane, and the longest she'll of been away from me. I'm dreading it, I've had tears, my little girl going away lol. But she's going to have the best time.
Well thanks for dropping by, hope the sun is shinning for at least some of you, it's pouring in Portsmouth. big hugs Vicki oxo's
