Birthday Buddies

Darcie shares her birthday with the son of our neighbours. It's quite uncanny to think that in this small district 2 of our babes were born on the exact same day! This year for their birthdays we had a little morning tea birthday party with lollies and cake, of course! I made a number 2 cake and covered it with M & M's (Yes what was I thinking! It took over an hour just to put them on there!!). Here is a 'just because' layout to mark the event:

I've used a mix of LilyBee and Echo Park papers and this cute little pin and doilies from the Chip Chop Shop. I've used my Tim Holtz tape on this one too.

I've added a little bee from MLBOW.

And some journalling strips:

And of course, to finish it off, I have added a banner. I don't know what's gotten into me lately, I am putting banners on every layout!

The school holidays have started for us. Lachlan is sick so didn't go to school today. The girls aren't well either and I can feel myself starting to come down with it too. What a great holidays it's going to be! We are weaning and branding in the first week so I will have a house full of people to cook for. I actually look forward to it. It's nice having visitors when we spend so much time 'just us'.

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by...
