Happy 1st Birthday

Today is my friends little boys 1st birthday and I wanted to wish him a lovely day filled with presents, cake and cuddles. He is an adorable and funny little chap and I love spending time with him and hearing his laughter and wonderment at the world around him. He loves bright colours so although normally I would have gone for pale colours I thought he might like something brighter.

Papers: "Toyshop" Nit Wit Collections
Cardstock: Blue - Stampin up, Orange - Coredinations

I also bought him a present and made a box for it but the box was as much for his Dad as it was for him. His dad has just become the proud owner of an ipad and he has waited quite a while for one so when I saw a toy version I had to buy it for Ethan as what little boy doesn't like to copy his dad. I made the box for it too, was originally going to make it in the white and silver but as I only had two sheets of white 12 x 12 I tried it in orange first and then decided I liked it more and it was more fitting for a kid than a duplicate of the original would have been. I cut the apple from the "Savoury" cricut cartridge and all I had to do was discard the butterfly and additional leaf and voila an almost perfect match, also used the "robot" cartridge for the wording on the card and box.
