Happy Birthday Jessica!


It’s my DD’s (Quinn’s mommy!) birthday today!!    She’s a purple-aholic just like me, so I was excited to make this gift set for her special day.   

Just Us Girls is having a Template Week challenge and I felt like a kid in a candy store looking through the awesome selection of templates from Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs, the sponsor for this challenge!!   Wow, you really must take a peek ~ I will definitely be back to this site again!  

Plus, I was blown away by the samples from the JUGs Design Team . . . each one is just gorgeous!     I’ve used the  Hexagon Box Templates for my project.



And topped them off with a yummy teal and lilac Prima flower.


The matching card is made using an adorable stamp from the Betsy Bluebell set from Penny Black, now available at 7 Kids College Fund.  I used scrap pieces of patterned paper leftover from the boxes for this card  . . .



So, here’s wishing my all-grown up with three gorgeous children of her own, daughter a VERY happy and special birthday today!        Surprise!!      🙂
