Today is Jenni's 28th birthday! As many of you know, Jenni is my oldest daughter and is a frequent contributor to my blog as well as working with me for some classes and workshops.  She is always complaining when I post current pictures of her, so I thought I would share one from her baby years.  Isn't she adorable?   I love you, Jenni!

The whole family went to see Despicable Me (funny, cute, movie) and then to Red Robin for dinner and Skinny Dip yogurt for dessert - all Jenni's choices!  She was so full then though that we are putting off presents and cake (well actually she chose a giant cookie & ice cream) until tomorrow night.

I thought I would share the card I made her anyway and hope that she doesn't check out my blog between now and tomorrow night!  :D  I loved the Music of Love card I made and used a few of the elements from that one for her birthday card.  But, of course, I had to personalize it just for Jenni!  She loves purple, so I used Elegant Eggplant.  She took five years of French and was a whiz at it, plus one of her favorite stamp sets is Chic Boutique, so I wanted to include a Parisian theme.  And as it happened, she bought coasters today with the Eiffel Tower on them!  :)  So it worked out well, I think.  I hope she likes it!
