Happy Birthday, Jonah!


Today is my son, Jonah's, 11th birthday and I have some projects to share.

I made some treat wrappers for the Kit Kat bars that Jonah picked out to give to his friends, using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Stamping Random Background patterns.

 

I used my Headline Alphabet stamps to stamp their names. Then I used Boy Basics: Game On & Live Love Life to stamp the random background.




And here's the card that Sage made for Jonah, also using this week's MIM:


I'm linking Sage's card up to the Simon Says Stamp Kids' Summer Vacation Challenge.

So, the kids should be arriving any moment, and then we'll be off to the pool. It's a little cool and cloudy, but that won't prevent them from having a great time, right? ;)

Thanks for looking!

These are so fun, and I never tire of seeing Sage's darling cards. Is she going to enter one for the Simon Says kids summer vacation challenge? She should. :) Looking forward to hearing about how Jonah's party went.

Super cute! I need to find that stamp set. I have two boys and all their friends are into games. These would be great for all the cards I make and candy I give them on their birthdays.
