1st birthday

Happy September, happy belated Labor Day and happy Fall!
I started writing this post 3 weeks ago and never finished.
Although my grandson's 1st birthday was August 16th, we celebrated it Sunday, September 3rd. Here are a few pictures of Sir Bradley!
This picture was taken the evening of August 16th. Couldn't resist getting a photo of him making a mess of his birthday smash cake!

                                   The theme to his party was "Wild One", hence his t-shirt.

Balloons were EVERYWHERE!

                                                                Singing happy birthday

                                  What party isn't complete without a kids bouncy house?
                                    Here is the birthday boy having fun with Aunt Dana!

On to a set of cards I made that never got posted. Using Stampin Up's Daisey Delight stamp set, coordinating punch and designer series paper, I made these 2 cards. I saw on Pinterest how you can punch them out of pattern paper and fold in half to make them look like a Cone flower which is one of my favorite flowers! I have cone flowers in every one of my flower beds.

I left the banner at the bottom of each card blank so as to stamp a sentiment for whatever the occasion calls for.
That is all from me today. Although it is officially fall, we are enjoying some record breaking temps here in Chicagoland. The gauge in my car registered 95 degrees yesterday as I was driving to my sister's house to go swimming!
Enjoy the week ahead!
