1st Day of School & a Birthday!

Published by at 7:54 am under Inkadinkado Designs

Awww, today was the first day of Kindergarten for us! Man, that was a tough one! He looked so cute and he was SOOO excited. Course when we got there he started being a little shy. At least I wasn’t the only parent balling their eyes out! lol. Here is a few pic’s of him!

Today is also my brothers birthday!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHREEEEOS!!!! :) My brother is a rockstar. No, really…he is! He is an amazing guitar and drum player and has been in bands his whole adult life. He’s been asked by an elite group to play with them in Portland where he is living now! That hopefully will explain why I always make him skeleton cards! 😉 We both love Halloween too, so it’s usually my favorite birthday card I make all year!

I couldn’t WAIT to cut into my new Cosmo Cricket Haunted paper pack and ink up my new Inka Skulls set! I don’t know that you can see it, but I used Candle Light Shimmerz on all the skulls and skeleton’s! :) I also sponged the edges with the Coal Shimmerz. I hadn’t done that before with the Shimmerz, it worked really well! The embossed part is the Skeleton Scroll from Provo Craft! I hope you enjoy!
