HaPpY BiRtHdAy!! Rio

HaPpY BiRtHdAy
I hope you enjoy your day.

Enjoy this little scrapbook to hold you 13th Birthday memories.

This is what the inside looks like. I left the pages blank so Rio can fill them in with whatever she likes, photos, notes, doodles, or any other special birthday memories.

Here are the details from the orginal post to show you how sweet Rio is:
Betty must have one of the sweetest 13 year old daughters.


This post is in Betty's own words from her blog:

Money, a trip, a party, or an overnight stay at Disneyland.... Rio came to me and said, "Mom, is it really really my choice what I get for my birthday?" I told her of course! So she says, "Ok, this year mom, I want money, but can I do anything at all with it? I mean anything I want mom?" Again, I said of course. "Okay, I want my birthday money to be donated to the children of St. Jude's hospital so they can have a special day, or whatever the money is needed for. I don't want to have money to just blow when I can help other kids that can't get out of bed, or go outside. That's what I want for my birthday!"

Of course I was already choking on my tears before she finished her sentence! What a marvelous request, selfless and special! I had a special image made for her 13th birthday, and I have not told her about it, or shown it to her. I am asking for a very special request myself in honor of my daughter's selflessness.

So Betty's special request was to make Rio a birthday card with this image, Rio I hope you enjoy your birthday you deserve it!! 

If you want to see all the other cards that the Simply Betty Design Team made for her you can check them out on the challenge blog ---HERE---
Thanks for looking.

Also on a personal note just as I share my birthday with my mom in December my wonderful husband and his mom also share a birthday so I would like to wish them both a very Happy Birthday today.
