40th Birthday

It was my daughters 40th birthday yesterday and she's not into grunge or anything like that, she likes clean, simple cards.  However, I was making the card not her, so she got this, lol...


She absolutely hates this photo, both Rachel and my son have really curly hair (they take after their father) and have always spent hour after hour trying to straighten it.  When they let it grow it just gets bushy.  I cropped this photo from one of Rachel, David and Rachel's boyfriend at the time and I tell you, it was difficult to distinguish who was who, because all their hair looked the same, hilarious.  

We're having a family weekend to celebrate her birthday, so my grandchildren can't wait to see the original photo, although my youngest, Charlotte, has threatened Rachel that she mustn't show this card to anyone, she hates the photo so much.
