First Birthdays . . . and a CAS-ual Fridays Reminder!

Happy Wednesday, Peeps!

Breckens First Birthday

Popping in today to share the card that I made for my grandson’s first birthday.  He was so stinkin’ cute at his party – laughing and playing with the other kids.  And my daughter really did a great job of creating a super cute and fun theme!
I love the colors and patterns of this new My Mind’s Eye DP  - the word paper reminds me of subway art, which I’m kind of obsessed with these days.  If I had it do over again, though, I’d heat emboss the “Happy” at the top – it needs to pop more.  Otherwise, I was pretty happy with how this turned out!

First Birthday
Here’s a picture of Brecken eating his birthday cake – I guess they call the little cakes a “smash cake”.  I assume that’s because it gets smashed all over their face and hands?  LOL  When he laughs, it’s simply the best . . . .

Check out these delicious (I'm not even exaggerating) cookies that my brilliant friend, Terri (Fresh Cut Flours), made for Brecken's birthday.  These babies flew out the door when the guests realized that they were not only stinkin' cute but delicious, too!!  Seriously, people were hoarding them in their purses and coats!!  LOL

 CFC02 - Buttons and Twine Avatar 
So have you played along with the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this week?  You still have a bit of time to play – it ends at 11:59 pm EST tonight!!  I hope you’ll play along with us.  The challenge this week is to include buttons and twine in a clean and simple design – easy peasy, right?!  You can get all of the details HERE.

That’s it for me today, kids.  I’ve been creating the last couple of days, so I have some goodies to share with you over the next couple of days.  Thanks so much for stopping by – I hope you’ll visit again real soon!!
