It has been a FAB weekend.
This little girl turned 12 on Saturday. I don't think of it as just 'her' day, I think of it as 'our' day in many ways. It feels so special to me too.
I loved decorating the lounge with pretty fabric bunting and balloons and celebrating the day together.
I made this page last night. I love this photo that I took of us whilst out on a walk last Monday evening.
I used Alissa's sketch that she made for the Cocoa Daisy July sketch challenge.
You can see it here. Feel free to play along with us there.
I used some of this months and last months Cocoa Daisy kit.
So Saturday was spent in Basingstoke shopping mall. We started at Costa with coffee and cake. Always a good way to start a shopping trip. Then Hollie and I went off and the boys went off. Madam spent some of her birthday money and we all met up for lunch at Gourmet Burger.
I love shopping with Hollie now. She's so fun. We both go into the dressing rooms to try things on. We have pretty similar taste on quite alot of things these days.
I love this piece of ribbon that was in this months Cocoa Daisy kit. Perfect for this page.
This LO is my sample for this weeks challenge at CD.
I have a recipe challenge for you this week.
Take a look here.
Anyway, Hollie's day ended up with us having a quiet couple of hours at home late afternoon. She had a deep bath with a new bath fizzer and she frosted her birthday cake. She wanted to make her own this year and made a 2 layer red velvet cake. Yum.
We all them watched 'Grown Ups' whilst eating cake.
It was a lovely day : )
Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope you've had a good weekend xxx
