Happy Birthday Matt

Hi There!  I'd like to welcome my new followers.  Lovely to have you, hope you'll drop by often and find some inspiration.

Believe it or not they actually called and asked if they could deliver the bed a half hour early. Now that’s a first.  I barely got it made before Jim got into it.  Once he did it was so comfy he took a lovely nap. Although his back and legs are still hurting him the bed is so much more comfortable he is slowly feeling better. Hopefully between the new bed and our wonderful chiropractor his aches and pain will soon be gone.

Today is our baby boy, Matt's birthday. Gosh it’s hard to believe he is the father of a ten year old now. When he isn’t working hard or being a wonderful father he loves to play. His favorite toy is his motorcycle. 

It took some time but I found a picture of a bike like his on the web, re-sized it and printed it.  The sentiment was computer generated. I found a piece of card in my black scraps file that had been embossed with a lattice EF.   I found the prefect yellow for the layering.  This looks much more vibrant IRL.

We wont be able to celebrate Matt’s birthday until Thursday but I've promised to make his favorite fried chicken dinner. He isn’t a fan of cake so I’ll surprise him with another of his favorites, Malasadas, Portuguese donuts.

Thanks for stopping by The Closet today.  Your comments are appreciated.
