my daughter is turning 13 this weekend. 13!!
i will be the mother of a teenager and a 7 month old, all at the same time. talk about mid-life crisis!
i made this altered journal for her to take with her to winter camp. the good kid she is *cough* (this time, for now, but no really, she's a good kid, sometimes), all she wanted for her birthday was to go to winter camp with our church youth group. i am seriously so proud of that decision! i don't even think there's a boy involved (other than Jesus, of course)!
took apart a spiral bound notebook and covered the front and back with scrapbook paper using mod podge and hot glue. used my crop-o-dile on the edges before putting it back together. if this were for me, it would have beed completely distressed, however, that's just not her. so she picked out her ribbons and flowers and away we went!
prayers for her to not only have an absolute blast, but return home with the beginning of an itimate relationship with her heavely father.
