It's been Ally's birthday today so have been busy trying to make it special for him (things don't always go to plan do they).
We popped to town first thing this morning as he needed some new school shoes, (need a bank loan for them these days) two pairs to choose from, yeah guess which ones he chose - the most expensive, (but he loves them and they are nice, so may be he will look after them better, Oh boy I hope so).
Next stop game shop, he had taken some of his old Wii games to trade in for a new game, (thanks for the help form my tec whizz kid, yeah you know who you are!!!) he came home very happy with two games as well as dad getting one (who's the big kid now).
Quick call at the bank to pay a cheque and back to the car, oh slight detour as we saw a book in waterstones which was calling to him, with the birthday money in his pocket (we don't mind books, especially if he's going to read them).
Called in for lunch treat at ????? yeah MacDonald's, very naughty I know but it's his Birthday, if a boy can't chose what he wants on his birthday when can he. Ok back to what I was going to tell you. I have made his super cute easel Birthday card with a sheet I got on my 1st trip to Kanban (oh I love that place, why is it so far away).
I'm so sorry but I can't remember who's blog I saw it on, but some very kind person was showing you how to create your own wobbler spring, I just love making them. So to bring the card to life I put his head and game controller on wobbler springs (I think it looks like a Wii controller)
My Martha Stewart Happy Birthday punch came out to play along with her friend Mr spring curl and I made the lovely stopper. Punched out a couple of ovals with my stampin up punch with a few peel offs for his name and age.
Thanks for popping in and reading my waffle for today, bye for now
