Austin's Birthday Party

My God Son Austin had his 1st birthday party today, it went really well - he even got to have a nap in the middle! He got lots of lovely presents, tasted the paper that wrapped them and got to enjoy his gorgeous Elmo birthday cake!

Isn't he a handsome little cutie - enjoying a handful of yummy icing from his cake! I can also now unveil the present that I made him (and his mum!):

It's a keepsake box (altered lunchbox) with tiny replica converse shoes made from Bazzill cardstock. Then inside:

A mini album with a photo for each month of Austin's first year and a space to write his milestones. The photo you see here was also enlarged and framed for the family to hang in their home.

Happy Birthday little man, hope you sleep well tonight!!
