Lincoln is a strong little man. He has never been a little boy but always been an old man. He is one of my beautiful nephews who I adore so much.
He has the most infectious smile and is always there for a cuddle. Being a typical boy he is obsessed with his cars, bikes and the item that is way up there is his prize possession being his work boots that are just like Dads (my brother Adam).
Lincoln is a very protective younger brother to my very sweet nieces Rhianna and Madison. But if anyone looks the wrong way to this boy his big sisters aren’t far away to be there for him.
Just thinking about him makes me smile. With the nickname of squishy I miss him tremendously and can’t wait to give him a cuddle next time I see him.

So the question was posed to me what do you get a 12 year old boy for his birthday that has everything and wants something unusual and different.
As we all know this age can be very difficult for gift giving and hoping and praying they will like what you get them. Kristen was a perfect client – she opened up full creativity license for me. The only thing I had to go on was that his favourite song was “Give Me Love by Ed Sheeran”.
This being quite fitting with Ed just touring Melbourne and with this in mind I came up with a design which included Kristen’s brothers’ name along with the song title and artist name. Also what better way to pay homage to his much-loved song by having the lyrics as the backdrop.
By also adding in the polaroid of the famous Ed it bought a real sense of depth and character.
As you can see the whole concept came together very well and I am very proud with the custom By The Letter Z creation and more importantly so is Kristen.
