It's a Birthday Celebration~!

Today I am sharing a winter creation using Snow Friends from Whimsie Doodles. I think these two snowmen are the cutest! We don't have any snow where I live yet (thankfully!), but I know lots of people have gotten it already~! I am sending lots of prayers and hugs to all my Northeast friends.

I printed my images on Georgia Pacific White cardstock and then colored in using Copic markers.
I added some Crystal Stickles to the stars and also to make a little snow. The lace is from Really Reasonable Ribbon: Pink Crochet Lace. I added some sparkly ric rac for added shimmer. The inside shows the sentiment that comes with the set:
My designer paper is by My Mind's Eye from the Merry Little Christmas 6x6 Collection.

Today I am celebrating the birth of my amazing and wonderful son, Steven. Twenty-four years ago today he came into this world, and it has been a joy every day. Not just saying that. Really mean it!

The first photo was when he was 3 months old -- ready to go to his first photo shoot. :)
The second is at his wedding two years ago (he just celebrated his anniversary three days ago!)
And while he is on a beach in Mexico this week, celebrating with his lovely wife, I will be celebrating with James Bond. Yep. Skyfall. Today. Next best thing. ;)
