Happy Everything {and Marcel's First Communion}

Happy Monday my friends. Is it bad that I'm looking forward to the upcoming three day Memorial Day weekend?  Well, I am!  Hopefully the weather will be nice and we'l be able to sit outside and relax for most of it!  Lately my card making has been just in time card making.  This card was made on Saturday night right as we walked out the door to celebrate a friend's birthday.  My ink blending could have been smoother but I love the vibrant colors and the quick inspiration from the current CAS(E) this Sketch.

Yesterday we celebrated Marcel's First Communion. He was absolutely adorable, "I feel like a lawyer in this suit."  When I told him two of his uncles are lawyers he was very surprised, "They are?!"  Not sure what he thinks of lawyers but he was shocked that his Uncle Tim and Sean were lawyers. It was a beautiful day celebrating with our family. Here are a few pics (I'll have more later when I get caught up with Project Life!).  The sun was in his eyes for these sweet pictures!

  8. what a handsome man all dressed up! I think Jake wore a similar jacket for his 1st Communion! I could see him being a lawyer and winning all the time!
