Birthday Invitation with Skateboarder for Pre-Teen

My grandson's birthday is in a week.  My goodness, where did time go?  He will be 10 this year.

A simple invitation using the skateboarder.

I used Night of Navy and White for the colors.  The inside of the card was computer generated with the invitation specifics.

Altered Altoids Tin: Ella's Photo Album

 This month's challenge was to alter an Altoids tin.  I chose to make a photo album because I have a brand new granddaughter, Ella.  She is two weeks old right now; we have many photos of her.  This is for my son to take to work and leave on his desk.

Colors:
Coastal Cabana (to match the color of the Altoids tin)
Blushing Bride

Stamps

Lovely Letters Alphabet
It's a Baby Girl, single stamp by Inkadinkadoo

Other:
