Our Boy is Turning 5!

So now that the hustle and bustle of the Holidays Season is coming to a close I am able to shift focus to Ethan's 5th Birthday which is coming up in February. I always like to make as much of the materials myself so I try to give myself lots of time! 

This year Ethan has decided he would like to have an Angry Birds theme birthday party and we were very excited about this idea! I love all of the vibrant colours :) 

We decided to have his party at a local Recreation facility as the idea of a bunch of 5 year olds running around our little town house did not sound like much fun to me hehe. So when Mark heard that Ethan wanted an Angry Birds party he started planning some fun themed games for the kiddos to play - I can't wait to see what he comes up with!

I have created his invitation with this week's MDS Monday sketch challenge. I am also entering this card in the Anything Goes Challenges at Inkspirational & Seize the Birthday.

  8. What a great cartoon background to match the theme! Thanks for joining MDS Monday (oops) this week. I was thinking about punch art... you could make in MDS which would make duplicating so much easier.
