Little Boy Birthday


Hello and Happy Columbus Day!  Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in Canada!  The only way I know it's Columbus Day is because my husband had today off (he works for a bank).  One of my friend's asked if I could make a little boy birthday card for her, so I worked on it today.  I decided to use my favorite little boy image from Whipper Snapper.  I used DCWV All About Boys mat pack and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #42 for my layout.  I will leave a full recipe below!  Thank you so much for stopping by today : )
