Kraftin' Kimmies' Saturday Challenge #40- How Quick they grow

Today my Baby Turns 14~! At 6'3" I sometimes forget that my man child is still a child and it's unbelievable to me how the last Fourteen Years has just whizzed by! Every year I get sappy thinking about how I used to cuddle my sweet baby for hours on end.......just looking at him and stroking his soft cheek. Even as a 10 lb 3 oz preemie, my baby seemed so small.......who knew he'd grow and grow and those tiny toes would morph into size fourteen feet!!! Anyway, enough of that!

Jonathon starts High School in the fall. I KNOW the next four years are going to fly by even faster then the first 10 years of School! I am so proud of Jonathon and the young man he has become. I love his independence, his dry sense of humour, the gleam in his eye and his cheeky grin.

On the Field with the Knights Minor Football. I can't wait to cheer you on at High School Football in the Fall!

I love you so much Jon that it still takes my breath away thinking of how amazing motherhood can be...........the good, the bad, the ugly, the joy, the pain of hurting when you hurt and the laughs that we have had since our first shared belly laugh at 6 mos old. Keep growing and maturing and although you won't allow me to hold your hand anymore, I'll always be standing beside you with unconditional love. I know you're a young man now, but you'll always be my baby.

Sooo in celebration of Jon's Birthday, I'm hosting the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge this week! The task-to create a Birthday card suitable for a Boy. Oh my gosh! Wait until you SEE what the Krafty Girls have created! They are AMAZING!!!!!

Want to win Surfer Miles??? Be sure to play along with the challenge. You can get all the details on the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog and Link up your creation there!

I used some Crate Paper DP to go with my Surfer Miles. Flower is from Bo Bunny and I've been crazy about these epoxy doodads from Making Memories

Don't forget about this fun Krafty event! Hope you'll join us there! I used one of the Beach Sentiments to create this SUN-Sational Birthday card for my best guy! Punch and Chipboard are from SU!

Hope you'll play along!
