Special Day....

Hello and welcome to my new followers, I hope you will enjoy your visits.
I cannot believe I have managed to make 2 cards in one week, thats a first for me in ages lol. It was my Grandson Ryans 16th birthday on Thursday.  At first I could not  decide what to do as I had done all the football and racing car cards, in the endI decided  to do a more personal card just as I did for my Granddaughters birthdays last year, so I spent a delightful afternoon on Monday going through all my photo`s of him along with a lot of memories which I will admit to a few tears as well as I just cannot believe that time has gone so quick...... so without further ado.....
The photo`s were imported to MCS where I choose the backing paper, the frames and then the photo`s.
 I then added the football cup, the racing helmet as these are the things he loves. The words under the photo`s were decoupaged to give it a bit of a lift. Added the tag sentiment and attached using a brad which I got from the lovely Lindsay.
