Happy 2nd Birthday!

I can't believe little W is turning 2 already! It seems like just yesterday that I flew to CA to throw my BFF her baby shower. I'm sad to say that I've only seen him a few times. The distance is just too great, but I am thankful that our friendship has survived over the miles and the years.

I used Ana's Cupcake Anniversary sketch for Taylored Expressions. If you want to play along, check out her sketch here. I hunted around for a cute little image to stamp and color and I couldn't find anything appropriate for a boy. Then, I dug out one of my old CTMH stamp sets and decided on the monkey. I thought it fitting since W was a monkey last Halloween!
