Owen's First Birthday

Can you believe my little baby is one already?? One of the funny things at Convention this year were the comments from the other Paper Angels about how I was much bigger I looked at LAST year's Convention! Sure I was, 8 and 1/2 months pregnant!!

Owen is such a little character and had very little interest in the whole birthday party ritual. All he wanted to do was play on the grass!

I thought I would share some pics of him on the day and his cake, along with pics of the card I made for him.


I made a pop-up card! I can't remember the last time I made one of these...
Ooh, and did you notice I used BOLD BRIGHTS??? I know! I hardly ever do the Bold Brights thing but hey, I gave it a go!

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Polkadot background
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Staz-on Black
Paper: Watercolour paper, Yo Yo Yellow, Gable Green, Whisper White, Lovely Lilac
Accessories: Tempting Turquoise grosgrain, Linen thread, Bold Brights Brads, Watercolour Wonder Crayons (Bold Brights)
