Finnally! and it's a long one.

Just for you Karyl *hugs* a post.
The 21st was a roaring success, so I have tons of pics to share, but first,,,,
Some creative stuff...
Mel and I went shopping a little while back, don't know if I mentioned it before, at a local recycling site, at the tip and these were one of my finds.
Daggy 70's maybe?? light fittings,

Now at the time the 21st decoration planning was going full speed ahead, but not really getting anywhere. The theme being 'Glam', And I spotted these.
What a find.
Don't think Mel quite had my vision at the time though. :0)

I proceeded to pull em' apart.

Got some black paint happening. (BTW didn't hand paint them all, ended up getting a black flat spray paint, so much easier, don't know what I was thinking in the first place)

And,,,The end result.
There were two of them and the larger one was the center piece hanging from the roof of the pitched pergola, out the back. You can just see the glow of the tea lights coming from the glasses.

The night was fab and Erin had a great time, and besides all the planning, stressing, shopping and prep work, I did do, I had a great time too.
I hired a great photographer, (Max) Love you heaps girl and thanks so much. So between us we got some fantastic photos, which have inspired me to do more scrapping.
My sister Les was fantastic in the kitchen and I don't know what I would of done without her. (mind you Les, it was all your idea to do it at home in the first place, you won't be doing that in a hurry again, :0))
The Birthday girl was beautiful.
The cake turned out so good, with Max and Les coming to the rescue again. *hugs*

She loved her album and so did her girlfriends.

Her Besties.

Another Bestie, Brooke and her listening to the speeches.

The speeches.

Other party pics.

The Lockster.

Max, Dad and Me


And some more, just for you Karyl :0)
Erin and James (her boyfriend)

Of course as the night went on there was some pretty incriminating photos taken, some we will keep to ourselves,, sorry!,,,, won't we Max!!!
Some dancing and singing.

Some serious dancing.

Some serious singing. (remember it's getting very late) LOL

Some serious drinking. (creaming soda of course, notice Liam trying to corrupt the poor dog)

The Pressie (given to Erin long after midnight, well her birthday wasn't officially until Sunday the 7th)

My Girl and Me. Partying late into the night.
I love you Erin.
