Happy 15th Birthday Jayden

WOW I cannot believe that it was 15 years ago that I got stuck in the booth at Hungry Jacks while having a contraction!!! lol 

Yep, I had to be induced with this lovely  - 10 days late - boy of mine so we went for a walk to try and hurry things a long a bit and Anthony needed something to eat, so while sitting in the booth opposite him all of sudden my stomach raised and I got stuck!!! All I could think of was emergency crews cutting this table out of the floor to get me out, then having the baby on floor in Hungry Jacks!!! Thankfully it only lasted a minute and then I was out of there as fast as a 9month 10day pregnant woman can move!! lol. Isn't it amazing what horrible scenarios can go through your mind in a split second!!! 

Anyway so here he is....  then ....



and now ....


Big Difference!!! 

Anyway, so now he is in to skateboards and Skype and FB!! I have had the idea for his card for ages!! and actually made it up in May!! I loved these 'dogtags' that I came across by Kaiser and they just suited Jayden to a tee!! So they had to go on his card.  So here it is.....


I am pretty pleased with the end result!! It is a 15x15cm card I have used a SU grommet in the top corner to 'hang' the dogtag from.  I have hammered the little feet in and raised it on dimensionals to be able to thread the ball-chain through.  The skater is a free vector from online.

Materials Used
Stampin Up - Cardstock and Inks - Basic Black Night of Navy.  Accessories - Large Grommets. Non SU - Kaiser Rewind Paper, Kaiser Rewind Dog Tags.




Till Next Time...
