I Don’t Remember Being 9

but I do remember that Mum made 2 identical cakes
a 6 and a 9
for my sister and for me
and we couldn’t tell whose was whose

Today Jessica went to a 9th birthday party
She helped choose the colours for the card


It was a boy’s birthday so it started with the obvious blue choice ;)

The Color Room has their new challenge up
Challenge 3

Here is what I made


Don’t have a lot of purple, violet, lilac, lavender or any other shades of purple lol
So I used the mist/dye I made a while back from food colouring
I washed it out a lot to get the lilac-y colour


and I used some gesso to back the journaling
Drew my own journal lines


Dave had soccer today
He only got a little wet from the rain we had lol
and won his game, can’t think of the score :)
While Jessica was at the party we had 2 friends over, picked them up from the party
One Megan’s age
One Elizabeth’s age
Lucy hang out with me
and neither of us minded ;)

And that, my friends,  was my Saturday
Hi to all the new followers/readers :) Don’t stay quiet, I’d love to hear from you :) :)
