The Cub’s First Birthday Chalkboard Poster

It seems like everyone is doing a first birthday chalkboard poster (and smash cake) for their little one’s bash, so of course, I wanted one for my little man.  I actually started working on it when The Cub was about seven months old, and just added things and tweaked it little by little here and there until it was finally complete.  And it was so easy too!
