Early Birthday Years - November Challenge

Hello Everyone

We have a brand new challenge starting today - Early Birthday Years
These early Birthday years are always so special and so I thought it would be a super theme for a challenge.

This month we want to see a project based on an Early Birthday Year. Create a project about yourself, your children, a member of your family, or a special someone - an early birthday year celebration!

I created a layout of my sons 1st birthday and it was quite emotional for me, to think back to how small he was then and how he had just started walking.  He was walking a few steps, but still crawling in between. Now he is already 7 and I can't believe the years have passed so quickly.

Here's the page.

I used the super,cute Our Lil' Monster collection from BoBunny.  The cute little birdhouses are Molossi chipboard, which I just inked.

I did some gesso stencilling and stamping on the background and a fair amount of fussy cutting.

The little monster holding the balloons was just too adorable and so I had to fussy cut and use him!;-)

I have a little journalling tag behind the photo.  This is the little bit of red cardstock you see peaking out. Such a special little boy!!

This cake my Mom made for Joe on his 1st birthday and it really was so special too.  He could not keep his hands off it and was delighted with it's cargo of sweets! ;-)
The memory of this special day is certainly treasured!!

So I really hope you will play along and tell us about an early Birthday year celebration too.
