Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Kid + A Friday Freebie on Thursday!!!

February 05, 2015

Hi there! I've been meaning to find the time and inspiration to share another template with you for quite some time but after the holidays, life didn't really slow down as I had planned.

I can't really complain though, I've gotten in quite a bit of quality time with my family, I've been really enjoying cooking as of late and I've been getting things tackled in our home and finances that I've been meaning to do for years. All of this, however, has meant a lot less time for scrapbooking.

Yesterday I finally found the time to sit down and put together a sketch for you, based off of this page that celebrates my oldest son's unique sense of style.

Caleb just turned seven this week (yay!) and I thought what better way to celebrate than to pass along this freebie inspired by one of my favorite recent memories of him.

Wonderful You by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Amber Labau Designs: Wonderful You Kit and Pocket Cards; Valorie Wibbins: Hello Haberdashery (MPM Addon). 

But first, the story behind this page...

This photo was taken outside of Joann's.  I needed to make a quick run to the craft store and Caleb insisted that he wanted to go.  I agreed and told him to get his shoes on quick.  We were just out the door when I looked at what he was wearing--his long john pajama top and bottoms with his favorite shark shirt and a pair of shark print shorts layered over top. He must have noticed my apparent disdain for his choice of clothing because he said "WHAT?! I play for the Sharks and this is my uniform." I breathed deep and took his outfit in again...I could definitely see the theme and to his credit he had successfully mixed different densities of the shark pattern and avoided any real clash of colors and he had also come up with a creative compromise to my "no tanks or shorts during winter" policy. I ruffled his hair and said "Go Sharks." And we made our way to the store. I decided in that moment to "live and let live." The years of him needing to THINK and DRESS and ACT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE were hot on our heels and I chose to celebrate that which makes him special rather than wishing he was like anyone else on the planet.
