Happy Birthday!

It's a dreary, rainy Monday here in Atlanta, which seems fitting since it's my 50th birthday AND we have a water leak in our house that was running from the first floor into the basement right over the bar in our home theater room.  We had to turn the water to the whole house off last night and we have a plumber coming later this morning.  Ugghhh...not such a happy birthday so far!

On a happier note, this adorable little Pure Innocence girl made her way down to my friend Silke's to wish her a happy birthday last Wednesday!  The patterned papers are from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop collection and BasicGrey's Lemonade 6x6 pad.  Her dress and the present are paper pieced and in Silke's honor, I added a couple of silver pearls for the buttons on her dress. 

For the inside, I used some more of the Thrift Shop papers and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics set.  The buttons on the inside were made using a button die from My Favorite Things and were attached to a scrap of the gingham ribbon and tied with some twine.

That's about it.  Hope your week is getting off to a better start than mine!  Be sure to come back on Wednesday for another Belli Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
