Birthday Season

We are in the midst of 'birthday season' in our family. Does this happen in your family too - where you have many birthdays within just a few weeks or months? Ours starts in late March and runs to mid-June.

The card above was for my Dad's birthday this week. I finally found a great use for those extra large chipboard letters I bought three years ago. Or rather, I'm using the frames the letters came in. I love this so much I'm already thinkng of others I can make. There is only one of each letter so I have to plan carefully. With the green leaf background paper, flowers would be a pretty embellishment, maybe even some rhinestones.

I think Daddy liked seeing these photos of himself through the years. They were already scanned in my laptop for their Anniversary party last fall. This time though the photos were concentrating on his life. It is fun to see how someone has changed, or not, over the years.
Helpful hint: The Crop-a-dile made easy work of punching the holes in the corners of this think chipboard. I ran hemp twine through to tie them together.
