I Have Two Teenagers

I wake up this morning to having two teenagers in our house :)  It's our middle son's 13th Birthday today! I can't quite wrap my head around that!  He's such a great kid.  Warm, loving, talented, athletic, goofy, loyal and witty.  I feel very blessed that he and I have a very strong bond too.  I think it will help us navigate the years ahead.  Because he has a ball hockey game tonight on his BD night, we celebrated a night early with a family party, and this was his card.


I pulled out TSG's set Out of This World for a little atmospheric fun.  Astro boy is colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  The star die is SU, the numbers are PTI.  I had to really pull this together quickly, because I left it till the last minute, so it's pretty straightforward as far as design goes. I'm also feeling like it won't be long and I'll have to find more "grown-up" images for him to up the "cool-factor".  But so far, we're good :)  


And here's my BD Teen :)  Handsome isn't he?  I know it won't be long before the girls come calling...AH be still my heart, THAT I'm not ready for!  
Thanks for dropping by!

Happy Birthday to your son :) Where do the years go, huh?! Fun card and love the 13 with the star behind it. Hockey game sounds like a great way to celebrate :) I'm about 16 months away from two teenagers so I'll come to you for advice once I'm there LOL!
