SU Remembering Your Birthday with Legos

rs119

 

When I saw the retrosketches # 119  this week, all I could think about was Legos. Although my boys are 23 and 26, I have all their Legos packed for their kiddies some day. A friend of my husband kept all his boys’ toys packed away for his grandchildren and pulled them out when it was time for them to play. I knew after the investment in every set- Star Wars, Pirates, Construction Vehicles- it would be a smart idea to keep the Legos with their instructions packed away. It was pretty easy. However, my daughter’s Barbies never got the same treatment- she just gave them away one day!

Here is the card I made to save for a little guy someday

or maybe….for one of my big guys’ birthdays this year!

SU Remembering Your Birthday Legos final

I really like the SU Word Bubbles Framelits but think they need to be on a certain kind of card. I think one fit perfectly on this card.  Popping it up off a solid colored cut out really gives it dimension.

  1. This is the ultimate card for a Lego-loving boy, Cindy!! We did the same thing with Dan’s Legos of which there were many and his sons are playing with them today! Unfortunately, we weren’t smart enough to keep the instructions so they have not been used like they would have been had we thought ahead like you did!! WTG!! Hugs, Darnell

    1. Thanks, Darnell. My one son used to have all his creations displayed on bookshelves- some were packed away that way about 8 years ago…wonder if they are still intact? lol

  2. Cindy, your card is fabulous!!! Any little or big guy would love it!! I saved my boys Ninja Turtles and lots of other items. Hope my grands will want to play with their legos one day. Right now, it is only Princess things! LOL!

  3. What a clever card! I am completely impressed… I know so many little boys (and girls!) who would love this!

    Thanks for joining us this week at RetroSketches!
