Happy Birthday Coen!

Happy birfday to you
Happy birfday to you
Happy birfday dear Co-ennnnnnnnn
Happy birfday to youuuuuuuuuuu!!!!

Can you believe it's been a year ... a WHOLE year since Coen was born? I'm still in shock lol. Especially when I look back at pictures when he was first born....he has changed so much. I had to stop myself from posting every picture I've taken of him...I think it would have been the longest post in the history of blogging lol. I've made do with 2 but will post pictures from his birthday lunch at The Boat House Cafe in Rouken Glen next change I get. His G'gma and G'gpa arrived from Ireland yesterday for the celebrations as well as his big cousin Ciara and his mummy's best friend Alanna from Italy. I think there will be a few other friends joining us :-D

Love love LOVE this little guy {sigh}

Of course I made Coen a could I not?? I LOVED making his card...

I've used Billie is One (buttons) from the Through The Ages Collection. I love Billie full stop... she is just so cute. I paper pieced the number, used Fluffy Stuff on the cupcake frosting , Glossy Accents on the candle and hanging heart and glitter on the flame and Billie's heart. I used an MFT die for the bunting (I think I impressed QOB lol) with 3mm Gunmetal Nailheads in between the flags and also an MFT alphabet for Coen's name. The pp is Echo Park Boy Dots & Stripes...I LOVE this pad. 

The buttons have been in my stash for years

I hope you have a great Thursday and happy birfday to you if it's your special day today too!

Catch ya later x
