Happy Birthday Trevor!

I can't believe my youngest is now 8.  Where did the time go?!?!  Today we celebrated with just our family....Pizza Hut for dinner (Trevor's choice) and then some delicious birthday cake from our favorite bakery.  Trevor spent most of the day putting together new Lego sets and playing his new Wii game (his idea of a perfect day).  We wanted to play The Logo game tonight, but it got too late, so perhaps tomorrow.

For his card he wanted a puppy and a cupcake on it....lucky for me I had the perfect stamp for it.  I chose paper from Simple Stories Happy Day collection along with Kraft paper.  I stamped the image on one of the journaling elements included in the 6x6 paper pad and then paper pieced the entire image.  I added a pearl for the cherry on top of the cupcake and added a Happy  Birthday sentiment.  On the side I cut out the July calendar, wrote in the dates along with the current year, and then circled the date of his birthday.  A bit of ribbon and a border punched panel with some embossed paper and the front was done.  

Here (inside - left), I made a pocket, added another happy birthday sentiment to it and then put a journaling element inside the pocket.  
And here (inside - right) I added some cardstock to write on along with yet another journaling element.
