Luca s birthday invites

OMG in about a months time this little guy will be celebrating his first birthday!!! I just cannot believe that is been a year already and his growing up to be a lot of fun and a lot of trouble for his parents lol. This picture has me in stitches every time I look at it, it was taken on our latest holiday and while we were enjoying a cold glass of Sangria he was put down to play in the grass..and of course auntie Moni is always there with the camera

Bless just how funny is this picture lol. His hair was really long and I remember talking to my sis before this photo and she told me of a few incidents where people was referring to him as a she much to her amazement. *** I just don't understand ( she was saying) how people think he is a girl when his wearing boys clothes and is just so obviously a BOY*** Well I have to tell you that while on holiday we had his hair cut as it was just too hot and a few days later when we looked back at this photo( this was taken on our first night) we both thought the same thing, actually you know what? he did look like a little girl because of his long hair. LOL. I love him so much.

So of course we are already planning for the birthday celebrations and auntie Moni is responsible for the invites and the cake and all things pretty so decided to get those done ahead of time before UStamp starts. And this is what I ve come up with Bright vibrant colour combination coupled with the ultra cute Wild About You set from SU. I was going to go with Brilliant blue as my base( thank you Julie for the extra card) but then changed my mind as it was a bit too blue IYKWIM. Choose Ballet Blue card stock instead and this was stamped with the Canvas background from SU and Versamark ink , Pumpkin Pie designer paper( on offer this month ask me about it),Real Red for matting, and inks were Pumpkin Pie for the giraffe, Ballet Blue for the elephant, More Mustard for the lion, Old Olive for the aligator. The tab punch was used to punch the pocket and for the card that pops inside. The sentiment comes from the Cheer and wishes set. The construction of the pocket was really easy to do, you need half a sheet of A4, I might shoot a tutorial on how to make one of those. I just love how those turned out and they are a lot prettier IRL it was quite dark today when I took the photo I might retake it tomorrow. Hugs for now Monica xxxx

Oh Monica he is just so cute, the reason people mistake boys for girls is because, as baby's boys are very pretty looking, infact beautiful (can you tell I have 2 boys..lol) I felt a little bit like your sister and couldn't understand how they could mistake them when they are dressed from head to toe in blue!!

Oh and the invites are fabulous too!
