Cassi's 15th birthday

I really wanted Cassi to have a fantastic birthday and one of the 21st things she does is ask is there any mail for me, and usually sadly there isn't so I put out a call to some fantastic online friends through our ravelry RAOK group to see if anyone would be able to send Cassi a birthay card or note, well the response was overwhelming, people are so kind and Cassi had so much fun opening all her letters and even a few special little parcels as well, she received 20 cards on her birthday!

I was taking pictures as she opened gifts and cards, but then there was a knock at the door and she really couldn't wait so I missed lots!

To anyone and everyone who sent Cassi cards, gifts and the couple who sent her a little bit of play money she had so much fun and YOU made a huge difference in 1 persons life, cassi has a tendency to depression and her birthday is always a sparkpoint so I am so grateful to you all.
