Surprise! Two days in a row? How can that be?
Today is Jessica's birthday! 
She is 17.
While checking out some You Tube videos I saw this lovely card being created and I thought it was beautiful and elegant and a bit more grown up. Kind of like my Jessica. :)

The stamp is from Concord and 9th and celebrate is a die from My Favorite Things.

She had a full day of school, came home for a bit to do some homework and then headed back to school to participate in the first Battle of the Books for this school year.
And, for the first time since she joined, her school came in first!
How's that for a wonderful birthday surprise. 
If you know Jessica, you know reading is one of her very favorite things to do. 

Birthday Girl
with Amy at Red Robin, Jessica's choice for her birthday dinner.

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope your week is off to a great start!
