Birthday fun!

It is my birthday this week so I was lucky enough to have an early Birthday celebration this weekend while visiting one of my best friends, Julia, and her family.  She recently moved to Coventry and this was the first time I had seen her new house.  We had a lovely day of gossiping and catching up on each others news while the kids played nicely together. Most unexpectedly Julia produced a Birthday cake with candles for us all to share which was a lovely surprise.
Needless to say both Chloe and Alex had to take it in turns to blow the candles out!  It was a wonderful day and a great start to my Birthday week!
Crafting wise I haven't had time to do much this weekend as we have been out and busy, but I did manage to complete this scrapbook layout following this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch (adapted somewhat!).  The sketch is entitled 'So happy' and as it comtains two Penny Black dog stamps, one coloured in using pencils, it also fits with this weeks open theme on Scrap and stamp. As it has three photos in a row I also feel that this layout fits with the Stamp simply 'threes' theme.
Finally I made this quick and simple card which fits with the CCC 'pink and brown' challenge and the creative craft 'glamour puss' challenge. I hope you all have a great week.  I am having two days off work in which to play with crafting goodies as part of my birthday treat so can't wait.
Love,
Caro
