Happy Birthday Blake!

Hello and happy Saturday to you!
Thanks so much for stopping by Studio 5380 today.

Yesterday was a special grandson, Blake, turned 8 years old!  I'm not sure how that happened exactly - there is no way he should be 8 years old already!  Time is flying by much too quickly to suit me these days and my grands are growing up on me.  But, no matter how old they get, I love to make them a little something for their special day....

This was a lot of fun to make...messy, but fun!  I started with an easel gift box file from the Silhouette Online Store.  I used several colors of Distress Ink on the panels to create an "outer space" look.  Next, I splattered Copic Opaque White Ink all over the panels to create the look of stars.

All of these fun little space images are from the "Space Explorer" stamp set by My Favorite Things.  I colored the images with my Copic Markers and added silver glitter for some sparkle (yes, even boys need a bit of sparkle on their birthday).

The pull out drawer is the perfect size for a gift card.

And...a close up look at this cute little astronaut.

Thanks again for stopping in for a visit today.
Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you soon!
