Archie is 2

Yesterday, 20th April,  was my little grandson Archie's second birthday.... With the blink of an eye.... he is two .... but if you ask him he tells you he is six!  Or at least that's what he told us when we spoke with him!  It only seems like yesterday he was born.  His Mummy and Daddy take him to the zoo regularly and that's where they went yesterday.    So of course Nanny had to make him a zoo card for his birthday.

I found a DCWV Safari Paper pack in my stash and the perfect paper for the box card.  I stamped the animals and used my scanner to flip and print so I got matching pairs..  My Scan'N'Cut came in handy to cut them all out. 

His Mummy made him a train cake with zoo animal candles....with some help from Archie.....

Can't wait till I get to give him a big hug in July when we are visiting on our way to Ireland.

Oh you've got to be kidding! Seems like you just announced that you were going to become a grandma! What a cutie pie Archie is & bet he loved his wonderful box card & the darling train cake! I'm jealous you're going to Ireland--was there nearly 40 years ago & love it!
