Super Sweet 16

Happy Birthday Nic!

Today my son turns 16. That statement alone just makes we want to cry. I don't know why, but it does. None of my birthdays have caused me any issues nor have any of my hubbie's or any of Nic's other birthdays, but this one is. Hard to believe my little guy has grown up and is much bigger than me. I have to stand on my tippie toes to kiss his cheek & he picks me up to give him a hug. I so love the man he is becoming.

I made this simple card for him using one of Mo's images. You can find this image HERE. Tonight after his party, a few of the guys are having a Call of Duty fest. Besides playing football and baseball...this is one of his favorite things to do. He is able to put on his headphones and play with all his friends.
My inspiration for the sketch is from Miss "Dirty Dozen" Suzanne. She used this card layout and I thought it would be nice to try out. I kept the card very simple being it is for a guy. I was going to add buttons but hubby thought our son wouldn't care one way or the other. That is true. He is more interested in what came with it...but that has been in our driveway for several months just waiting for this moment. He is excited to take his test next Saturday. Then a whole new set of worries begin.
Just a perfect image for any teen. Mo has some nice ones for guys & girls. I think I am getting better at using my copic's. What do you think? Can't wait to take an "online" class from Suzanne. She is the best and has some great video tutorials.
Well off to work for me. Lunch is over then it is party prep time. Hope y'all have an excellent weekend.
