Chocolate and Pink Sixteen

You know how I like my wordbooks so here is another one that I've recently made this time for a friend who's daughter is turning sixteen. I've used papers from Funky Hand - Craft The Year Away cd and I've used wordart to make the letters.

Although you can't really see it, I've dotted liquid pearls around the inners of each of the letters for a bit of detail.
The ribbons are from my stash and I've looped them around a few times to make a fancy bow and tied it all together with some very lovely chocolate brown satin ribbon. The charm is a little crown with 'princess' on it. It's one of a few that I've had for ages and bought from ebay.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Stampin' B's: Use Ribbon
Celebrate the Occasion: Kids Birthday
Cupcake Craft: Birthdays with a Number

  • Papers: Funky Hand - Craft The Year Away cd
  • Ribbons: My stash
  • Charm: My stash
