Make a Wish Layout

Ok....have you ever had a ton of pictures laying around that you just never got to? Well, I've had these birthday pictures of my son for a long time....he's had two more birthdays since these were taken and I've never scrapbooked them. Why you ask...well it was because we had a family birthday party, a friend birthday party, plus the normal pictures that I take of a birthday and so I had a TON of them. When I start a project, I like to finish it and I knew that these pictures were going to take me quite some time. So..... I finally got around to getting them done. They are fairly simple, but hey, at least they are done! We had an army party for my son and I found this cute little font online that was of all these army people...perfect as they were the exact same plastic army men that I bought for his cake and also for various games at this party. His invites were fun and said, "I don't know what you've been told, but Kaden (blank) is (blank) years old. Please wear camo to his party as we are going to be in the army." The boys had fun and we played lots of different games and even had "dirt" pudding for dessert. The boys loved the "worms" in the dessert and had a great time. All in all, when I got them done, it was 15 pages. Yikes! LOL. But they turned out really cute and the pictures were such a fun reminder of what a good time they had. Boy am I thankful for the feature of putting text on my actual pictures so that I could remember all the fun details. If I was trying to do it from memory now, all the cute stories would have been lost. So I'm really glad that I usually take the time to put text right on my pictures before I develop them so that I don't loose those stories. As it is, I forgot the dog tags and the invites that I had at home so they aren't on these pages but the pages are DONE and that's all that counts. Love my little army people and my MTC that makes it possible to find the absolute perfect image for any page. Did you notice my bear is holding a cute little army helicopter. Adorable! Love it and love that they are finally done and out of my to do list!
