HDH Haunted Birthday & MPS Spotlight Saturday

First off today - 
H*A*P*P*Y* 18th B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y*
to my son, Trev!!!

I know I've posted this pic before, but it's my favorite recent one, so you get to see it again.  :)  We are going out for an ice cream lunch with my sister and her kids today.  It's supposed to be another scorcher, so that should be refreshing and fun.  :)  Then we're having a little cookout this evening with Grandpa Richie, his friend Harry, gram, and our friend Tim.  I promised Trev I'd bring him to a store today so he could buy his first "scratch ticket"!  LOL    Boy, my "baby" - my firstborn - turning 18... it makes me reminisce about when he was a little guy.  Giving him baths and wrapping him in those adorable hooded towels, the smell of baby lotion, rocking him in the rocking chair, singing lullabies and reading him books before bed like "Is Your Mama a Llama?"   I always loved kids but I never knew what real love was until I had my first baby.  Thank you, Trev.  You were such a good baby and I'm so proud of the young man you are growing into.  I love you.  Happy birthday, buddy.  :)  xoxoxoxo

Appropriately enough, I'd like to share the card I made for Lynx's birthday bash at the:

I used "Balloon Girl" from Dilly Beans, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits - red marker for her eyes.  Cardstock, DP, and brads are all from SU!  I cut the skulls from the DP to decorate her dress and the balloon.  :)

Next up - today is SPOTLIGHT SATURDAY at Michelle Perkett Studio!  Make sure you visit to see the lovely creations from the DT - here's my contribution for this week:
This image is called Willow the Autumn Fairy - I LOVE the moon behind her, and I had a blast coloring her in with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits as well as markers.  DP is from My Mind's Eye and I thought the colors were perfect for this image!  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  Peace.
