at this rate he will be 16 times *MORE* adorable by 2025

nephew matthew, i mean. basing my calculations on the fact that he is EASILY twice as cute on his second birthday as he was on his first... (which is saying something, because he was pretty darned appealing to start with!) ...and extrapolating that out to his eighteenth would seem that the young ladies of the midatlantic states just don't stand a chance!

his party is this afternoon. you've already seen the minibook i made for him, as well as the cute photo tag i came up with while playing around with my new justrite stampers, but i had to have somewhere to put the book and hang the tag, so i decorated a giftbag, too. it's a bit more challenging for me to do "little boy" stuff, having trained so extensively in princess-pink-n-sparkly with the three nieces, but i think i'm starting to get the hang of it.

(patterned paper: basic grey, imagination project, sei, ki; letter stickers: basic grey; eyelets: making memories; inks: colorbox; pens: zig & copic; adhesives: tombow mono runner, 3m foam tape)

by the way, have i mentioned lately how very much i still absolutely ♥LOVE♥ the old-school basic grey letter stickers? those things just rock the casbah, don't they? whimsical without being cutesy, and slightly distressed without being grungy; they all mix-n-match together, and they're the perfect size. wouldn't it be great if they came in different materials, like thickers: foam, felt, glitter...??!* ah well, a girl can only dream! :)

happy saturday, darlings!
