Happy Birthday Aiden!

Today is my youngest nephew’s birthday. I had the extreme privilege of holding my sisters hand (and leg) during his birth and watching him come out was one of the most amazing experiences of my lifetime. That may explain what he and I are so close!

I asked him what he wanted for his birthday and he said very quickly, a tank that is remote control and shoots missiles! Ah he is all boy and frankly finding a toy like that was near impossible (At least for a 5 year old) I happen to stop in our employee store at Microsoft and low and behold they had the Halo Warthogs! I thought to myself, close enough! He was so excited to get it and it made me happy to see him and his friends get excited with they saw it.

His birthday card

Pinwheel birthday treats for his party. I used Brights Designer Series paper, Brads, and our new 1x8 cellophane bags! Filled them pixie sticks. I loved teaching all the little ones how to eat them. Not so sure the parents loved it but I know the kiddos did!

Chocolates wrapped with "It's a wrap" stamp set using the 2011-2012 In Colors!

Happy Creating!!
