My sweet little son, Riley had his 5th birthday last week. Normally, Mama is the one doing it all, cake, present, decorations etc. etc. etc. but as you all know I was recovering from surgery sooooo Daddy did it all. And made sure to tell me he did it all! LOL
Why is it that most men want applause when they do normal family chores?
Well, I applauded his manly shopping, decorating, wrapping and cake making. Then I just enjoyed the party! lol
If you follow my friend, Denise's blog you will have already seen this layout in a little different way.(like with her kid instead of mine! lol)
We both took the same class at CKC and these birthday pictures were all I had printed. So that is why you get to see this birthday layout. I wasn't as ambitious as Denise...I haven't finished up the other half of the two page layout.
I had a doctors appointment today and really just wanted to get something new on here for your viewing pleasure.
The class was fun. The layouts are fairly simplistic so I went a little crazy with Stickles, a journaling card and alphas.
I do like the cheery upbeat feel of the paper. And the colors worked with the pictures perfectly.
My kids (the 3 oldest) have really been embracing their inner artists lately and have basically been taking over my crafting area making cards and tags. I actually think it is pretty cool (except when they forget to put the top back on the ink pad....) ha. I will probably be posting some of their creations in the next few days. I know you are dying to see them! LOL
How was your Thursday?? Get any scrapping done today??
