Tenia Nelson and Veronica Zalis! Our dear friends and neighbors have the sweetest boy ever who is diagnosed with Autism. They just got the good news that he will be able to attend kindergarten in our local elementary school with the other kids from our neighborhood next year! We are very blessed with caring staff and a wonderful school district to make sure that's possible.
We had a new addition to the family last week, baby Theodore "Theo", and are so excited to get to meet him at our Easter celebration in a few days. Unfortunately, he may have to sit out on the egg hunt this year : )
What a perfect coincidence that the lovely little man Tenia is dedicating this hop to is also named "Theo"!
Knowing that I wanted to play in my dear friend Virginia's View Challenge, I wanted to make sure to layer this one up. Keeping a mostly white palate helps it stay clean. I focused on layers of "love you" over the elephant, the repeated "baby" sentiment on the "T", the tiny heart on the "O" and the layered alpha letters. The bottom layer of alphas is made from blue distress ink.
For the inside of the card I chose to keep the coordinating strip on the bottom of the 12x12 patterned paper to introduce a little color.
