Card for a Baby Boy

Hi everyone just another quickie as per usual I am running behind time.  It has been a very very long week but I had a lovely day yesterday as I went with a friend to London, had a meal and then saw Westlife in concert (we have gone to see them for the last 10 years).  It was a great evening as usual and a nice break.  Benn goes to his first concert next week up in Manchester to see Chase and Status who he thinks are brilliant, he doesn't think much to my addiction to Westlife though.  It will be lovely for him as his Brother is taking him which Benn thinks will be awesome as being in his late 20's and attending Glastonbury and numerous other festivals every year, makes him a cool dude.  So to be attending his first concert with him is going to be very special.

Well I have been very busy recently with making these great easel boxes as everyone and his mother seems to want them but I must admit I do love this one as there is nothing nicer than creating something special for a new baby is there.

Well must be off as I have to get off to football now as Benn will be wondering where I have got to.

  6. Oooh, now I do agree that I see alot of these boxes and not one the same, (which is why I enjoy crafting and blogging so much), yours is precious, the image, the flowers and of course the blue. Well done Max! This is my first time visiting your blog and love your write up. I think it's interesting to learn what people do over seas and to find out that we all do similar things.

  8. Max, this is absolutely stunning. I am not surprised everyone and his mother wants one!! Amazing.

    I have been having a little look around at what I have been missing.

    I hope that things got sorted with Brian. Such a worry for you. I don't know how you manage to fit everything in. Pleased you managed London and Westlife.

    All the concert news sounds exciting for Benn too.
