A Picture Perfect Birthday

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day if you live in the U.S.! Today I present to you a tri-fold card I made for my youngest son's birthday. He turned sixteen years of age and I can't believe how fast time is flying! It's like yesterday he was a baby in my arms, and today he is a teenager that's too big for me to carry. My baby is becoming a man. Next week school will be over for this year and that means that he will be a junior coming August. Will someone please make time stop and let me enjoy his company for a couple of years before this happens!!! I know, this is not possible. But I can always dream, right? Well, enough of that. Here is the card that I made with lots of love for this joyous occasion.
