Happy Birthday, Jeff!


My nephew, Jeff's 18th birthday is coming up. He is a senior in high school and has had his senior pictures taken twice. Both times he and his mom (my sister, Andrea) were unhappy with the results. As a last ditch effort, Andrea called me and asked if I would be willing to take a stab at it. Of course I said, "Yes!" I'm certainly no photographer, but I do love taking pictures, and every chance I get to take pictures just helps me learn more. I decided to give the photos we took to Jeff for his birthday. His birthday is not for another week, but I couldn't wait to give them to him. Both Jeffrey and his mom were thrilled with the results, and I was so happy that I could do it for them. Here are a couple of the photos (you can click on any photo in this post to see it larger and in more detail).

I made all the photos into a high resolution CD so they could print whatever they wanted, then packaged the CD in this 6" x 6" card. Happy Birthday, Jeff! I can't believe in just a few short months you'll be headed off to college!

Close To My Heart products used on the card: Cocoa Cardstock, Colonial White Cardstock, Indian Corn Blue Cardstock, Sweet Leaf Cardstock, Cocoa Stamp Pad, Indian Corn Blue Stamp Pad, "J" Monogram Dimensional Elements, Stars Dimensional Elements, Metal Brad Assortment, Clear Buttons, Round Sponge, Wonderful Friend Stamp Set (retired, but a stamp set that I love that has the same sort of feel is the one in the Lucky Workshop on the Go), Simple Stitches Stamp Set (retired, but another set I love with great border stitching stamps is Stitched Together).
