I enjoyed this opportunity to do something different. Having used the pretty, muted tones of the Coral and Summer PL kits in France, I chose the bright punch of Simple Stories Snap for this LO. The patterned paper and the balloon embellishments come from the Hip Hop Birthday line and the tiny wood veneer stars are Studio Calico. I love the sharp colours. This was also different in that the 6x4 Snap pad did not have rounded corners so I left them square and I journalled white on colour, instead of in black.
I journalled about going back to work but didn't want a picture of that.
We had 16 people over for takeaway curry to celebrate P's birthday. For R we went to the local ice cream parlour and then I took him and his cousins to see Guardians of the Galaxy at the cinema - a real boys' film!
While I was at work the kids went to Holiday Club at church every morning so I used a sticker and a flyer to document that. After some research and soul-searching, they also both decided to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge.
