Celebrating 9

Posted on

Good evening. How was your Saturday?

Ours was quite a bit quieter than we are used to. It’s Spring Break so our usual schedule of swimming lessons and volleyball and basketball, and anything else that we try to squeeze into the day, is on hold for another week. It’s such a nice feeling to know you have no commitments!

I spent the day in my Scrap Cave working on layouts for Clear the Desk and challenges over at Paper Issues – be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss my latest process videos. I will try to catch you all up next week but no promises!

The other thing that happened this weekend – at 11:31PM on Friday night to be precise – is that our youngest daughter turned nine. She’s pretty amazing if I do say so myself. Drives me completely mental with all her questions, comments, and stories, but I’m sure that means she’s got a quick mind that will take her far in life. Right?

Since I am a crafty Mum, I made her a card.

Birthday Card 1 by Alison Day

I was inspired recently to dig out my Jillibean Soup stash and see what I could create with it and this was one of the projects I made. Super simple – just a few sheets from a 6×6 paper pad some letter stickers and gold mist. I love layered and detailed cards, but sometimes it’s nice to keep it simple!

We also made and handed out some birthday invitations … but I think I’ll wait and post those another day. It’s a whole “rainbows and unicorns” thing!

Okay, I’m off to do some serious … nothing! Ah!

Have a great rest of your weekend everyone.

Cheers!
