My eldest turned 9 last week! 9!! Where did those 10 years from when I fell pregnant go?? Seriously??!! Just flew past in the blink of an eye! She celebrated her birthday with 4 of her closest friends and had a sleep over. My craft space was a little messy after they decoupaged frames, made cards and generally had a lovely time!
Here’s the card I made Katelin. It was based on one I’d seen on you-tube by Diana Gibbs. I guestimated with measurements etc. That’s how I roll. LOL. Forgive me the squishy bits. I had an argument with the wind on the day I was taking this picture. I think it won!
Now 3 days after Miss K turned 9, Master Thomas was 7. It’s always a very very big week in our house!! Thomas celebrated his birthday on Friday with an under the sea pool party. I showed you the invitations in my post last week. Here is what some of the decorations and what not looked like on the day:
I love making everything match. Are you surprised?? LOL. I love to theme the food as well. Surprise! I was over the moon when I found an ice cube tray that made shark fin ice cubes!!! It was awesome! Some blue cordial with soda water and it was a plethora of sharkies in my very own ocean! Tommy had a great party and we loved seeing him enjoying his moment!
Now I made his card back on retreat at the end of Feb. I knew we were doing a pool party but I couldn’t resist having a play with Shell’s Monsters. So here’s his card:
AND! Because I like to be a bit matchy matchy (‘nuther surprise! lol), check out the wrapping paper!! So cool!
That’s his happy face, in case you hadn’t noticed! lol
So there you have it. Two older kiddies and a greyer mummy! Next birthday on the calendar is mine! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a very nice camera. Maybe it will make my cards look better?? hahahahaha
Anyway, hope you’re all having a great week!
Until next time,
