I thought I would leave you with a little trick. I used an 8x8 pad of October Afternoon for my monsters and just used the edge of it for my sentiment. Trim and stamp. Super easy and resourceful, right? :)

Super Sunday!!

Today is Maxwell's 9th Birthday! I can't believe it! Halfway to becoming an adult! :(

I made a little mini album for him today. It goes through the alphabet and describes him perfectly.
Adventurous. Brave. Caring. Determined. Endearing. Funny. Goofy. Hero. Intelligent. Joyful. King of the Castle. Loving. Macho. Nobel. One of a Kind. Playful. Quick Witted. Reliable. Strength. Tough. Unbelievable. Valiant. Wise. X-traordinary. Young at Heart. Zany.

I used the NEW FANCY PANTS release--> Life Father Like Son
Hope you all had a WONDERFUL Sunday! :)
