Hello my faithful followers,
It has been so long since I have had a chance to blog OR scrap. I am in a hotel on my way back from summer vacation with family and friends. I have a few things to share so I thought I would get one post written before I hit the sack.
Week 19 was a very busy week for my family. The top row is of Ben’s birthday. His birthday really wasn’t until Monday the 11th (same as his son Matthew) but he wanted a Krispy Kreme donut cake (a family tradition for him started when he was a teenager). We decided to have his cake on Friday the 9th and then to have Matthew’s on the 11th. I made a tag using PL colored cards and a sticker that says EAT CAKE. I marked out cake and using alpha stickers I put the word donuts below. In the slot below that I wrote about our tradition for Ben’s birthday cake.
On Saturday Tim and I drove to Ashville, NC. He was going to go meet his birth mom for the first time. I put the personal info inside the folding PL card below the small picture. I added a pretty sticker flower to the outside of the PL card. The bottom right photo is Tim’s girlfriend, Camila, giving him a big hug. He didn’t tell her that we were coming (he did talk to her mom) and she was very surprised.
While Tim was visiting Camila, I went to visit my friends Fannie and Karl. I was playing table top ping pong with their son in the first top photos. I journaled about it using a PL journaling card and a sticker that says friends.
The rest of the page is about Matthew’s birthday (and Ben’s) and Matthew’s Avenger birthday cake that I made. I really love the Birthday Bash tag that I have been saving for such a time as this. I added a PL card that I added alpha and numeric stickers that told that it was week 19. I also added another PL card that I added a birthday cake sticker to.
A lot of fun pictures – too much for one page.
Hope to get back on here and be more consistent next week. A lot of fun ideas coming up!
