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.

SU Remembering your Birthday Cupcakes DD brighter

 

Notice the little sprinkles by the words “pink” and “sprinkles”? I had to cover up a stray pink dot that appeared when I stamped so I made some sprinkles by the word pink and then thought it needed some by the word sprinkles. In the end, I was super pleased with the result of covering up my blemish…like they say in the crafting world-
“a mistake is just an opportunity for an embellishment.”
