Happy Birthday Ben!
Time for another birthday in the family. This time my nephew Ben is turning 15. Happy Birthday buddy! Gosh, I remember when he was just born, picking him up from Pre-school and his love for Teletubbies when he was little. *sighs* Seems like yesterday. Life really needs to slow down!
I had some ink pads laying out on my table top that I had been using on other various projects and when I glanced at them I thought, "Oooooh, those are good boy colors!" I am in LOVE with this color combination of Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Whisper White and Smoky Slate. And since Ben likes to go paint balling, I thought it would be fun to use the splatter from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to mimic just that for the background. Too fun!
I really like the FREE Sale-A-Bration set, Big Day. I can see myself using it far passed the end of Sale-A-Bration. I love word stamps in general, and this one delivers! I also thought it would be fun to do a little paper-piercing and the circle mat from the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack made it super easy and quick.
And a sneak peek of the inside before I personalized it. Yep, the splatters continued in here as well on a narrow strip. Can't believe he'll be getting his permit soon. Seriously life, slow down! Happy Stamping!
