Happy 13th Birthday to Melanie

My big girl is finally a teenager. she's been hanging out for this age for SO long.
She left for school this morning, and I came home and did a make over on her room. Painted a feature wall. Decorated with stencil painting, and hung the candle holder I got for her. it looks gr8 and she was in total shock when she got home.
it took me all day, 830 - 245 but its fantastic :D
