Today it is my choice to pick the theme and I chose SOMETHING FOR A TEENAGER whether it's a card or a gift it is entirely up to you surprise us!!!

Todays kind sponsor is THE WHIFF OF JOY STAMPS they have kindly put up a lovely christmas stamp for the prize which will be used time and time again I am sure....

It was my Granddaughter Jayd's 15th birthday so I decided to use the Greeting Farm Creeper Crew Wednesday and put a touch of red in her hair and do her make-up and colour her socks just like Jayd, when I gave it to her she laughed and thought it was funny what Teenager would not have some ATTITUDE!!!!!

The Stamp is G. Farm C.C Wednesday HERE
Yellow Stars HERE
Glitter Glue HERE
Brads HERE

Good luck and have fun with your entries.
I will be posting Todays spotlight challenge creation later today, so keep a lookout it might be you!!!!!
