Pink Birthday!

Wednesday was my niece's birthday! She is growing into a lovely young lady, and I am so proud of her and the wonderful job my sister and BIL are doing raising her. She is an excellent student, enjoys reading, and is a great athlete, playing soccer and softball, and just generally loving active things. She is also the girl who is nice to everyone and includes them in her activities, even if they are nerdy-birds.I just realized that my gift is almost all pink, so I thought I'd share it with you this week. I love paisley, so this box immediately caught my eye in the store.Then I realized it held another box! It's a little Vera Bradley trinket box.Inside I placed these great polymer clay flip-flop earrings I got from Split Rock Designs on Etsy.Here's the birthday gal herself in her pink shirt doing her homework. No, Bo the dog isn't dead, he's just sleeping. Tired out from assisting with the homework I imagine.
For more pink goodies, be sure to visit Beverly and the other PINK SATURDAY participants listed at How Sweet the Sound.

Elizabeth! How are you? I haven't been visiting around like I should but I'm so glad I stopped in today! Boxes are wonderful, boxes within boxes are more special and then another gift! One lucky girl. Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Birthday to your Niece Elizabeth. Cute Pink Saturday post, and I love the paisley. When in doubt choose paisley, I always say you can't go wrong with it. It has attracted every age group for as long as I can remember. It never goes out of style. Great choice. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you come, sit and read awhile and visit. I have signed up to follow your blog, I hope you will do so as well. I would love to have you follow. Country Hugs, Sherry
