Amaira is one!

Already! It seems only a few weeks since she was born! Time flies away so quickly sometimes. :) we celebrated her birthday in a different style, instead of throwing a party, we took her to a children centric resort. She enjoyed a LOT!! There were baby swimming pools, play areas, creches, cycle with baby trailers, kids disco, parties for children.. I was so so so surprised to see SO many babies and toddlers in there. And the resort in itself is HUGE.. Surrounded in trees and multiple lakes with self catering lodges and hotel both.. We are surely going to go back again. Amaira enjoyed watching numerous ducks, rabbit, birds and squirrels as well.. :)

I made this special card for her, inspired from Ujjwal's napkin fold card on Lulupu.. I absolutely loved the fold when i saw it n decided to make this special one for Amy's birthday.. I just did a little change, instead of making a band to hold this together, i have a flap system which is glued on the back. The flaps close together using loops through popped up brads. Can you spot them? ;)

This card opens up n show this really lovely pic.We got a photoshoot done recently in 1930s style.. I absolutely adore this pic of hers..

Here's a pic of original card, more details here
