These pictures are from Ethan's last birthday and frankly, I'm feeling pretty good that I got them scrapped before his next birthday! Again...it seems like just last month that he turned 9. Where did this year go?
This birthday was fun because Brad and I surprised Ethan with a new bike. We were doing presents and Brad asked Ethan to go out front and get something for him. He went out and saw the bike and asked who's bike it was. He was totally surprised when we said it was his! I love this picture of him so excited and smiling! He is just the sweetest boy!
For the page, I kept it real simple and used patterned paper from Stampin' Up! from the hostess set this year. The paper is light, but if you look close you can see that it is lined like notebook paper. There is a little kite and string printed in the bottom right hand corner of both sheets. I covered the one on the left with a large patterned circle and the one on the right with a glittered cupcake I cut with the Big Shot. The glitter is actually clear stickles with chunky clear Stampin' Up! glitter put over it. It is super shiney! I did my journaling like I was taking notes in a notebook. Nothing big like a title, just little notes. This page was super fun and fast to do!
