First Birthday

Happy New Year, to all of my followers!
Today is actually my birthday,
and guess how I chose to spend the afternoon.
It has been a while, but now I feel the inspiration flow,
and I have colored several images for cards to come.
I will just have to set aside some time, because now comes
my busyest time of the year: Practice.
You may remember I am studying to be a teacher, and this is
my final semester. Practice is a few weeks each year
that we spend with a class to actually get to try the things
we read and write about. It is so much fun, but a lot of work.

Time flies so fast, and it feels like my little nephew was born
just months ago, but he is now turning 1 year!

I used papers from Maja Design (Thank you Elaine!),
and the striped piece of paper from Pion I think. 

I used flowers and black lace from WOC, 
Star Dies from Memory Box,
blue tulle and cheese cloth,
berries from Ribbon Girl,
and white corners. Notice also the little snowball-pearls
from Prima! Love them. :)

I used my Spellbinder frames,
and dabbet white acryllic paint all over. 

Edwin was colored with Distress Reinkers.
I added Liquid Pearl around the image,
and covered the plane with Star Dust Stickles.
The alphabeth was from Prima,
can you see the little number "1" on the bottom right corner?
and I also added a zipper (from Ribbon Girl?).
The branches are just some "fake flowers" I once
found in a store selling used stuff.
