Well, my son turned 13 yesterday (June 16), OMG, the official teenager! I hope the ride on this teenager rode is not as rocky as I could imagine it to be.
Here's the card I made for him. When I saw this "Z" fold card, I knew I needed to make one! I'm pleased with the way it turned out. Oh!, BTW, I got all of the dimensions for this card from my sweet friend, Dawn Griffith. Click here to see her sample and all of the measurements to make this card. Thanks Dawn for the inspiration!! Here's a side view of the card - see the "Z"???
Thought I'd give you a peek at the inside of the card. I inked only the "birthday" on this happy birthday stamp so that the card would say Totally Awesome Birthday...

Mochiko is singing to Nolan .... "Happy Birthday to youuuuuuuuuu!"
Actually, she was yawning and Nolan caught her right in the middle. I just cracked up when I saw this picture!
So, what did we do to celebrate?? Nolan's request was to go fishing, so we walked down to the beach as we live only a block from the beautiful beach...he managed to catch one Papio but because it wasn't 10", we had to release it back into the ocean. It was a beautiful day! After fishing, we went to eat lunch at Grace's - ono (delicious) chicken katsu and then to play games at Dave & Busters. I had to rush back to cook dinner. His request was ribs with Dad's "secret" sauce. It was a good thing mom helped me watch the pot while we were out. Everything worked out and I had one happy birthday boy. Happy Birthday Nolan! My baby is a teenager!
Thanks for stopping by! I took a bunch of pics at the beach, it was such a pretty day, I had to take a few shots of the scenery...I'm going to post a slide show on my side bar.. go check it out!! Another Z card tomorrow!
