1st Birthday

OK, so didn't get the pics up like wanted - hey, its Spring Break, so maybe I can get it up this week...notice...I did say Maybe! 

However, I did get started on a project today, and I will put some pics up with this post.  I have been dying to do an explosion box for my son, AJ, 1st birthday invite ever since I saw Momo do hers!  Loved it!  So...this is my take on it - this in the sample one, and I am starting to mass produce them but I have already changed just a couple of things - nothing big, just size and different shades of paper...SO! Here is what I have so far. The middle insert is still blank - it will have all of the actual party info-date, time, etc.

I would LOVE to do a quick vid of how and the actual measurements on them..but, we know how that goes, so I won't make any promises that I can't keep :)

This is the box itself.  We inked it all, which I love the ink effect, but because it is a car theme, it looked so much like grease to me! I just loved it!
This is what the inside looks like after you remove the lid.

This is the layer on bottom.  The "Honk Honk" is behind the red car.  The "Lil Racer" is behind the blue race car.

The "Zoom" is behind the green truck, and the 1 and present are behind AJ's name.  All items came from the Boys will be Boys cart except the birthday present, it came from the Create-A-Critter cart. 
All black squares have the white faux stitching around them and black faux stitching around the letters. 

For a first time adventure, I like how it turned out!
