Happy "BIRTH" day, Henry!!

What the what?!! I can't believe it's Thursday . . . and that it's July already!! This year is flying by, I tell ya!! Oh . . . here's something cool . . . it's time for a new challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!!

Our very talented and lovely Design Teamie, Franz, is hostess . . . and she's chosen a "boy" theme . . .

"Birthday for a Boy"

And here's what I came up with . . .
OK . . . so here's the deal . . . several weeks ago, my husband's daughter and her hubby welcomed their sweet little boy into the world!! Henry is our 7th grandchild . . . but only our 2nd grandson! So I wanted to make something really special for Henry's "BIRTHday"!!! (I'm just a few week's late with this . . . but, hey, I made it before he turned ONE!! That's pretty dang good for me!! LOL!)

Sooooooo . . . this isn't a card . . . it's a little something for Henry's room! Henry's dad plays bass guitar in a band . . . so Mo's little "Future Rock Star" image absolutely fit the bill, so to speak!! You can find this cutie HERE in Mo's online store!!

Here's a view of the framed creation . . . (I used a "Shadow Box" frame from my local craft store!) . . .
