From a boy to a man?

I always question my titles, but this kept running through my head. Some of you may remember a band called Boys 2 Men (good music I might add) from when I was a bit younger *wink*

Anyway . . . my baby's turning 16 today, so . . . with great sorrow for my youth and his . . . here's his card I created with some props of before and now. The photo of him with our lab/Irish setter mix is one of my favorite, as it combines his boyish charm and Buddy's beautiful angel on his chest. (note you can click on the images to enlarge them)

As for the cards, the details are below, but I just wanted to mention, I smudged a little brown on the younger boys face, cause lets face it, if he was playing with frogs, he's a little messy :)

The dapper Edwin all in blue looks very handsome and grown up (but did you see I forgot to color his hair?!! geez didn't notice until my photos were finished). sorry for the poor lighting it's drab and dreary here today. Okay, thanks for stopping by. Now I have to run and get the cake and some pizza!! Hope everyone has a GREAT day!

Also . . . if you haven't been to the KL Stampin N Scrappin blog, we are giving away a GREAT font set of Spellbinders dies. Stop by the blog, but you must participate to win! Good luck!

Card details: Boy w/his frog from High Hopes and Edwin with hat from Magnolia stamps The papers are Two Scoops from Basic Grey, ribbons misc from AC Moore, and chipboard from Bazzill. The images were colored with prismacolor pencils, gamsol and Copics.

Love the idea behind the card. Did your son appreciate it? It's so hard to watch them grow up. Great card!
