One of my besties is turning 50 and she deserves a parade!  She lives far away so I won't get to see her in person, but I can make her a parade float.  I finished this today and got it boxed up to ship to her.



That's her with her hubby in pics they had taken for the anniversary.  The little wagon is from the fairy garden stuff at Michael's and the kitty is their cat, Lincoln.



That's her birthday in the graffiti.

I took lots and lots (and lots) of photos because there are lots and lots (and lots) of details.













She was born in Newark, Ohio so this old puzzle piece went underneath.



"Float"ing on clouds.



Annnnnd the photos of the kitty float.

This has so many incredible details but it is so well done, T. All the personal touches will make this a treasure. It is so heartfelt and wonderful. Smiley

The banner and pinwheel are the icing for me, as well as the tiny kitty float. Wow!

Who wouldn't love a birthday parade? What a bright and happy float. I love all the hidden details underneath the wagons (especially the cat's  Cheesy)

Great job; your friend is going to love this.

Thanks guys!  This friend is trained in fine art and also super crafty and particular, so I find it hard to craft for her.  Crossing fingers!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
