Custom Fun, Cards, and a 12th birthday!



































































Well this past weekend my son turned 12!!!!!!!!!! I had him and a bunch of friends over for the weekend. KEYWORD for the celebration was LEGOS...boy how those boys love their legos...keeps them busy for hours. That is all my son asked for for his birthday....legos. They all had a blast....but me and the house are a bit tired. I wanted to share my birthday boy with you and some custom pieces I did for some customers the past few days. I also was able to make a few cards..which I LOVE doing! A few were for a customer...I enjoyed doing them and hope she likes them! I wanted to also remind you that this is my 199th post......which means the next one is the 200th...I can't believe I made it this far. As I said I will be doing a give-away to celebrate. I hope everyone's MOnday is a good one...not too manic. I have had a few prayer requests from some blog friends and be assured I am praying for you and yours! Xoxo, Cherry

What a great picture of you and your handsome 12 year old! How can I tell you how much I enjoy my visits to this beautiful blog!! Each of your creations continue to inspire me, not to create something like yours(that only comes in my dreams), but inspires me to see what creative people can do. You have a way of putting things together, that makes mini masterpieces. I like each and every one you shared. Probably my favorite in this batch was the snowman banner.

12 yrs old and 199th post boy you have some milestones here. Congratulations!

Love the cards and garlands. Especially the one with the "L"
and the snowman garland.
You are a very talented person!

Cherry,

You just always have the most fun and pretty things. Love the snowman with "cold" on it. Adorable. I also love the layers upon layers that you add to your things. Beautiful and always fun to see.

Happy birthday to your son! Hope he had a wonderful day. My son just turned 13 and boy do they grow up fast.

Happy birthday to your sweet son! Legos is what my lil' guy wants for Christmas - so you are right - a boy and their legos - a great combo. I absolutely love the snowman garland but then again - I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU DO! Have a good one! Cathy

Your son is so cute, and you are so pretty. Guess who arrived at my house today. SANTA! And I have fallen in love with him! It is just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. Shoot, I'm afraid I'm going to have to stay away from your blog and your Etsy during the holidays. You've posted MORE wonderful treasures. I have no more room for holiday decor! laurie
