Confirmation Day!

This past Sunday, my son, Kyle made his Confirmation. Even though my guy is 14.......he likes getting my homemade cards. Which I think is sort of sweet! So I whipped up a card using a Papertrey set, some Pink Paislee paper and gold embossing powder. I also did a bit of airbrushing and created a shadowbox effect with my oval Spellbinders.
I didn't want to "girly" it up too much, so I added a small piece of a doily and gold cording. And would you believe I DIDN'T use glitter?!!! GASP! However, I DID add a couple of navy blue rhinestones. I think navy rhinestones are acceptable for a boy's card........right? ; )

Here is my "growing up waaaaayyy too fast" guy! He is officially a head taller than me. (Not that that is difficult to do...) His voice is cracking less and sounding less Peter Bradyish all the time. ; )
I love this candid of him finding his mother very funny! Yep......I am one funny gal!
If you haven't left a comment for my post below, be sure to do so......JustRite is picking 3 winners on Friday for their big shopping sprees!
Thanks for letting me share today!
