21st Celebration

We have returned home after a lovely weekend with our daughters, grandson and 6 of DD#3's friends celebrating her 21st.  Over the past few years I have been working on an album for E's 21st - it has turned into two albums and is a work in progress - 50 or so pages so far.  On Friday E took the opportunity to Bungy at the Gondola and then she and her sister also Paraponting from the top of the hill and enjoyed the experience so the scrapping opportunities continue.

Here is the card I made for the occasion. 
 Note:  Her name is Esther but she spells her name Esta and as it fitted better on the card I used the shortened version on the card and full version on the message inside.   The lettering is my new favourite scrapping medium - Martha Stewart moulds and clay.  I think the alpha are going to be very versatile. The moulds and clay are available through Embellish It .  Papers are mainly Bo Bunny with a little Websters. 
 The '21' is Tim Holt's Grunge letters (inked).  The key is Tattered Angels.
 The heart is Kaiser Craft covered in liquid pearls. 
 The bow is vintage ribbon.  As she was in transit the day of her actual  birthday we did not send flowers so a little bunch on the card had to suffice.

 I made a side opening card for a change but just made use of the papers to cover the inside.  Rubons are Kaiser Craft.

After making fancy cakes almost every year for the last 20 this time the cake was made by a friend of the girls, Z of  Arbitrary Cakes.
 The topic "Hunger Games" was new to me but it is a favourite book of Esther's and she was thrilled with her cake. 

 The bird was amazing.  Take a look at more fabulous cakes here

And speaking of amazing cakes take a look over at Rachel's blog and the special cake and card she made for a special family occasion. 

Well must away for to catch up on some sleep.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Until next time .....
