James is 7!

My grandnephew, James, turned 7 last week and they had his party yesterday.   I made a special Birthday Card Book for him and thought I'd share it here today.
James is a wiz at putting Lego Star Wars ships together and so I Googled it and found some fun images for the covers.
 The inside pages are all photos of some of James' Favorite things at this time in his life!
And on the back cover
As you can see - James has a fun and exciting life even at the tender age of 7!
Here are just a couple of photos of his fun Lego themed party!
First, there was fun sliding into the pool in the yard along with water balloon throwing!
Then there were Lego kits for all the cousins to create with.
Then there were presents - and James read his cards aloud to us!
And to top it off -  there was a beautiful Lego themed cake - YUM!
What's more fun than being a 7 year old??!

I cannot think of anything more fun than being 7! You really did find some fabulous images for the cover of his little book and it is so lovely to see that some of his most favourite things are his family. He looks pretty adorable too! Hugs, Anne xx

What a VERY thoughtful "card" - and gift I'm assuming! James is very lucky!
I love that you included a variety of his life - not "just" legos!

Fun party photos, too!

James is a lucky boy to have an aunt who knows him so well and can put the highlights of his life into this sweet keepsake book! So much love in that little book! Fantastic, project, my friend!
