Happy Birthday to a special young lady.

Good morning,
Today is a very special day in our house, it's my eldest Granddaughter Megan's 11th birthday. I think that I might have just made her day. She has just been wished a Happy Birthday on National TV by Barbara Grey and the rest of the studio - how cool is that!!
I dropped my cards over to Barbara on Friday afternoon for today's shows, Create and Craft channel 671 10am till 12 midday and 2pm till 3pm. (Sorry I know this is a bit late for the first show)
While I was there on my very fleeting visit I asked Barbara if she would do me a big favour and wish Megan a Happy Birthday if she got the chance. Given how nerve wracking live TV must be I was most impressed and very grateful that she remembered. You should have seen Megan's face it was an absolute picture. I think I might definitely be Number One Mam-ma, at least for today lol.
This is the card that I made for Megan. It uses one of the Sugar Nellie Manga Girls and the pose could have been made for her:) I've added lots of flowers, pearls and ribbon.
The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley and has had a couple of tiny crystals added to it. I added them to the Manga Girls dress too.
I made it in Red and Black so that it will go with her bedroom. It's not quite Betty Boo but it was the nearest that I could get.
As I said the attitude is very Megan, she is 11 going on about 25. Don't they get the teenage hormones earlier these days? I'd better get going we have a house full this afternoon as it is also Megan's 2nd cousin's 1st birthday today and we are having a BBQ at ours.
Hope you all have a great day and that I haven't just jinxed the weather.
Love and hugs to all


  1. Happy Birthday Megan! Wow, what a thrill! Bearing in mind how ridiculously hectic Barbara's show has been AGAIN it is just a mark of how wonderful she is that remembers to mention all of the important whenever she is on air. I am sure I am not the only one sat drulling in shear wonder at all of the samples as well; congratulations Kim. I hope the rest of the day is just as marvelous x

  2. Hi Kim,
