Happy Birthday Stephen

My oldest son turns 22 today.  It is super hard to believe and seems like he was just a sweet little baby.  So today is all about Stephen (even though he visited on the weekend and we celebrated then). And I have two recent layouts about Stephen to share. 

The first one is using an old baby picture I dug out over the weekend. 

It;s a super simple design, but check out that shipping tag.  I used a silkscreen from a past Studio Calico kit and Color Theory gold acrylic paint to add those stars.  It looks amazing and was so easy - it took maybe two minutes.

And here;s a layout of a recent picture.  Stephen recently started culinary school and I loved this picture his girlfriend texted me.  He looks like he stepped right out of that Disney move - Ratatouille.

I loved the picture so much that I ordered in a 6x12 size.  I wanted the full impact of the hat.  Plus, a 6x12 picture means a really easy layout - a couple strips of paper and a couple of embellishment clusters and you are done!
