Happy Birthday Brayden!

Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I hope your long weekend is off to a great start.  We began our weekend last night with a drive to Auburn for my grandson's very first birthday!  Happy Birthday Brayden!  It seems like such a short time ago that we were making that drive to the hospital in Auburn to welcome him into this world and now he's already a year old!  

Of course I had to make a special card for his special day and I got to use my new cartridge (thanks Theresa for letting me know about this one!), "Teddy Bear Parade"....

(click on photo to enlarge)

I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of this sweet cartridge -so many cute images!
*The birthday bear is cut at 4 inches. I added Glossy Accents to his eyes and nose and Stickles to the cupcake and star.
* I used "Birthday Bash" to add the number 1 to the balloon
* Red background mat is from Spellbinders "Labels 17"
* Sentiment mat is Spellbinders "Ribbon Banners"

And, while my card is cute, it's not nearly as cute as this little boy....

I had my camera on the wrong setting and got a yuck photo, but you can still see what a cutie he is!

Candle out and passie back in!

What a doll!  Uncle Matt is feeding him icing off the cake!

And here's big brother, Blake...look at those gorgeous eyes!
My poor Emma did not get to go to the party because she has been running fever and feeling yucky.  I'm thinking we will just have to have another party very soon so that she can celebrate with Brayden!

Well, that's about it for me today.  I have a huge "to do" list for this weekend and I need to get moving.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll be seeing you soon!

Until next time,
