Happy Birthday Jenny and Jason!


The tale of Jenny and Jason...

23 years ago, our sweet Jason and his cousin Jenny were born 41 minutes apart on March 25.... AND they were born on their great-grandpa's birthday!!  So all 3 shared the same birthday for several years until great-grandpa "Boppie" Burns passed away.


The photo above was taken on Jenny and Jason's 1st birthday, March 25, 1992.  My sister-in-law and I sure look young!!  LOL This is my brother's wife, Tami with our kiddos and "Boppie".  It was amazing to have our babies only 41 minutes apart on the same day!  (but 400 miles apart).

         and Now...


Patty-eric-jason-march-25-1992Um ... wow.. talk about young.. :)  yes, we look younger!!

(and yes, Jason... You LOVED corn on the cob!!)

 Happy Birthday Jenny and Jason!


Jason and I love to feed the squirrels and the birds in our backyard, so I snapped this photo of the squirrel on our fence and then I made a fence with the Hardwood Background stamp and put it over the photo! :)  See video tutorial here for making the fence.


I stamped just the outline of the "love ya" "Just Sayin' stamp, then stamped happy birthday inside the outline and die cut it with the word bubble framelit dies and my Big Shot.


 On the inside of his card I stamped one of the custom photopolymer stamps I ordered from Stampin' Up!, punched it with the 1-1/4" punch and then added one of the Essentials Wooden Elements arrows.

 Every year on his birthday I take a photo of Jason in front of our wisteria.. it ALWAYS blooms for his birthday :)


and my roses are blooming soooo early this year!!!

Happy Birthday my sweet kiddo! :)  Love you!  Mom


Oh and a funny side note.... Jason saw this photo in the scrapbook and wanted me to share it with you .... this was my ENTIRE stamp collection back in 1992!!  LOL


Edited: several of you have asked how my stamp collection has grown.. I recently posted my stamp room shelves with stamps in my blog post here... :) Yep, it's grown!

Happy Birthday, Jason! Are you hiding under the desk with your Mom's stamps??? Cute!! Thanks for sharing :)


How fun! I was born 16 hours after my cousin (March 2nd and 3rd) and on my other cousin's 6th birthday. Happy birthday Jason!

Hi Patty,

Boy how time have changed, right? Your "little" stamp stash is too cute! And so is the picture of Jason when he was so young! I know how much it's grown in the years since!

Happy Birthday to Jason. My youngest nephew, Matt was born on March 20th so he shares a birthday month.

Thanks for sharing.

That card is SO AWESOME, now if I could only get the squirrels that run back and forth on my fence to slow down for a picture!!!
