Our Grandson turns ONE!

How fast a year goes by.  He surely can't be one already.  Especially hard to believe when there is 680 miles between us.  Sadly were were not able to attend, but saw lots of pictures and got to Skype with him a day or two later.  Yes, he does have beautiful red hair

Happy Birthday Jude!

Jude's parents decided on his name from The Beatles song "Hey Jude", so the theme to his birthday party was
The Beatles - "Abbey Road". 
Of course, I had to make a card to go with the theme.  I got the background paper for the front of the card by scanning the party invitation we received.  The "Jude" was created by using a special order request I had made to
Regina at The Cutting Cafe.
The Jude was made into a easel image by sandwiching the back in between the background paper and actual card. She also made the sentiment in the round I used on each side of his name.  Thank you Regina, for helping me out!  On the inside, I found free sheet music of "Hey Jude" to use as my background paper.  (Sorry, I always forget to take pictures before taking the pictures.)

I couldn't not make a traditional birthday card for a one year old, so I had to print off one of my favorite images -
1st Birthday Boy -  from Mo's Digital Pencil.
Isn't he just adorable!!!
The sentiment on the front of the card is from TLC Creations.
Easel cards are my very favorite card to make.  The paper is from my stash, so not sure where I found it - but don't you think it is perfect?


  1. Wonderful cards you made for Jude, can't believe he's one year old already! =)
    Hugs, Elenor

  2. Oh my Marla, where did that year go, he is so handsome. Love the cards you made for him, and that song Hey Jude is a favourite of mine and I always think of it when I think of your Jude :-) Love how you have used the music on the card inner. You are such a talented crafter and it is so good to see you back...
    Love ~ Lady Anne xx
