Happy Birthday Collin!

Could that smile be any sweeter!  I love this freckle faced little man! Today he is celebrating his ninth birthday!  Hard to believe how much time flies.  This picture is from vacation...and who wouldn't be smiling if you got to get a milkshake that came in this cool glass.  Which he promptly came home and wrote his name on with a Sharpie!

Here's his birthday card!  Yes...he has been asking for an iPod Touch which will be his gift (with a few rules...has to stay in the house...at nine I'm not quite sure he's ready to take it on the bus like the older boys do).  And he'll be so excited to have his own!  Normally he asks for crafty gifts or science type gifts but he was pretty adamant about the iPod.  (playing along with the PS Sparks Challenge for this card...)
Happy birthday my sweet little man (with a little mischief tucked in for good measure).  He's my loving little guy...still tucking his hand in mine...when he gives kisses, I love how he puts his hands on both sides of your face to give a true kiss.  Happy birthday my sweet boy!  I love you with all my heart!


And here's a fun little birthday tag to go along with the celebrations for Collin.  I'm entered this in Verve's Anything But a Card challenge (that completes the challenges for their anniversary!). Love, love, love those arrow stamps!

What on earth is he eating??? Love your tag, it could easy be a bookmark too? I like the idea of a button on the ribbon. You rock... yep, totally perfect.

oh, lots of sweetness on the blog today! That big milkshake cup is too cool and coming from a big family, I understand the need of a Sharpie written name! ;) The card and tag are adorable...one more sneak peek day! Tony's going fishing with his brother tomorrow, so I didn't even tell him what I'll be up to ;) All day in the studio! Hope today isn't too busy...ox

Happy Birthday Collin! That milkshake glass is just awesome, did he finish it? Perfect card for a 9 year old, like the tag too and an iPod touch is a very cool gift.
