The story about the belated birthday celebration.



Cupcakes

Hello friends! Today I want to share with you the story about littlest nephew J's belated birthday celebration. Yes, this aunt dropped the ball and celebrated her fave nephew's birthday 12 days later *Gasp* [bad, bad aunt!!!]. Not only did this aunt blame the heavy rain for ruining her trip to the cakeshop, she even attempted to....[wait for it, it's so bad it's good]...quietly "manufacture" a fake birthday memory for her nephew's scrapbook!


Oh yes, my intent was to let the nephews pose with the 3 angry birds cupcakes and then make a layout about J's birthday...even though I was totally late for it [sheepish grin]. The older two nephews weren't too happy about having to sing the birthday song again but perked up immediately when they were told that henceforth, all their birthday celebrations will be month-long! I think they were thinking about month-long cakes and presents! *LOL*


J was very happy about munching off the angry bird's head and then sharing his cupcake with his sister S. :)


I went a little crazy with the stickers...*winks*

Playing along with song title challenge at The Studio [mine's "Happy birthday to you! "] and the sketch at Creative Scrappers.

Supplies: Echo Park patterned papers and stickers, Crafter's Workshop templates, Maya mists, American Crafts thickers, SRM stickers, Ranger distress ink, ribbon, washi tape, foam, black pen, white pen.

P/s: Happy weekend friends! I would love for you to play along with my guest Sonia's recycling challenge and LESSology Challenge #13 Chest of drawers!

I LOVE this story! Yvonne, that's too funny - and since we live far away from family & the mail isn't always on time, I've been teaching my boys forever that being 'late' just means your birthday lasts that much longer. Tada! Love the crazy stickering - perfection :)

What fun journaling and banners galore. I am with the boys - month long celebrations are the way to go. Don't you love how kids zero in on the little things and can turn it all in their favor?!
I learned last week that one of mine views leaving the interior lights on inside the car as a good thing...if the car doesn't start he doesn't have to go to school!!!

sutty said...
