Rock on!

Today is Aiden's 7th birthday. Not only is he my nephew, but he is my godson and my saviour! My oldest son had passed away in 2003 and I was in a dark place. Then this little guy came along. I was with my sister during her labor and delivery and besides her and his daddy, I was the first to hold him and that is when he and I made this connection and bonded. I am his Aunt Nanshee and he will always hold a special place in my heart.
So Aiden and Michael - my younger nephew and Aiden's brother, both spent the night as we are heading out to the toy store to birthday shop before we go to his party. Last night Aiden discovered my IPod and thought it was so cool to put ear buds in his ears and listen to music. So we picked out all his favorite songs and made his own music list on my IPod - rock on, dude!

Not only Aiden has a birthday in August, but I have another sister, myself, 3 nieces and another nephew with birthdays.I have started making their cards slowly - it's been a very busy summer for me. This firsrt card I made for Aiden -

Pattern papers, die cuts, tags, ribbon and buttons are from the October Afternoon Cakewalk line. Sorry for the bad picture - the lighting in this room is awful and I only took 1 picture!
This next card is for my sister Lynne:

Pattern papers and die cut are from Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings line, stick pin from Prima, ribbons and pearls from my stash and the sentiment is from Crafty Secrets Grand Greetings stamp set.
I have a few more cards to make and will post next time. Enjoy your Sunday! Me and the boys are off to the toy store!
