Halloween? Nah Danni's 15! LOL!!

Its time for a new challenge over at My Time to Craft. Just to warn you this post is photo heavy!
Anyhoos the challenge is to make an

EASEL CARD


As you know I love making these but am pants at taking photos, well I managed to get these ones out of the 50+ I took lol!! There is a story behind this fabby creation (yeah I think its the bst card I've ever made, well I had the most fun making!) 
Our baby girl was 15 last Friday, if your a regular you will remember I posted a card a few weeks ago & said it was for Danni, well after her (by accident) seeing it, I thought I best make another one & this is what I came up with! She's my baby Nemo, its what I call her cus she's nearly an emo but not quite so she's a Nemo! lol ! Yeah we're strange in our house....her friends have started calling it her as well lololol!


There is a black cat at the bottom of the picture above, I thought about putting sparkly eyes on him, but decided against it as thought it might have been to much!
