Happy Birthday Cassidy, One Stop Craft Challenge & Bellarific Friday

Today my "baby" Cassidy (Cass, as she prefers) turns 16 years old.  H*A*P*P*Y  B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y  to my princess!!!  I had to make something altered for a challenge, so I decided to make her a birthday gift.  It's for the:

One Stop Craft Challenge #127 - Altered

I found this old box that my cell phone came in, and decided to alter that - here are the "before" pics:

And here is what it looked like "after" - it's just something she can keep her change and little treasures in:

She's a Taurus, so I used a digi image from All That Scraps zodiac line.  The designer paper I used is from SU! in So Saffron, Old Olive, and Taken with Teal.  I used some charms I had saved from Cass's old bracelets and stuff - buttons & ribbon are from my stash (some SU! and some from My Favorite Things).

We're taking her to get her driver's permit today - I can hardly believe it.  The years just fly by, let me tell you.  This is her as a little girl, 4 years old:
 And now this is her, looking all beautiful and teenager-ish, last Fall:
No matter how old you get, Cassidy, you will always be my baby, my girl, my daughter.  If there's anything I can promise you, it's that I'll always be here for you and that you'll never doubt how much I love you.  Happy sweet 16th, Cass.

And the last thing I have to share with you today is my card for the Stamping Bella Bellarific Friday Challenge, which was a "free week" meaning we could do anything we wanted.  I made this cute card with the new Arthur & Annie set:
 I colored their hair and skin with Prismacolors & mineral spirits, and paper-pieced their clothes.  I used SU! cardstock, DP, and ribbon.  Hope you all have a nice weekend. Peace.
