Today is a big day for us...its Tige's 2nd Birthday wow where did that time go. My little boy is a big boy now and it blows me away how quickly he has grown. I cooked some yummy bacon and eggs for my boys this morning the baked beans were a hit ! The phone has been ringing and Tige git to speak with his Gamma (grandma) for a while and opened a couple of pressies from her whilst gamma was on the phone. Tige loved his Thomas the Tank Engine T-shirt and socks and of course is wearing those already mum he he.
Can't wait for lunch time so we can have some choccie cake, blow out the candles and open the rest of his pressies, should take the better part of the arvo to do that lol. I promise to share some sugar high pics and some snapshots of the paper tearing mayhem {he he} tomorrow with you guys :)
I am also excited to be celebrating my sketch blog 'Page Drafts' first birthday. I have some beautiful friends helping me celebrate by creating some gorgeous pages for you all to swoon over so to take a look at those head on over to Page Drafts and check out the birthday release here!
Below are my pages using the sketches as inspo and they are all of Tige which of course is befitting given its his special day too ;)
