"Say cheese" and celebrations
What a whirlwind of a week I've had. Shopping, preparing for visitors coming and arranging a family party yesterday with lots of food for my DD's 18th birthday. I baked her a cake on Monday and put finishing touches to it on Tuesday.
She is a fantastic upcoming photographer and is starting an HND course in Photography this year, she loves photography and so I thought this camera cake I created for her was apt. The camera badge has her initials and 18.2day on it, in case you were wondering what kind of camera it is.
I had intended the camera strap to be made from a Catherine wheel liquorice strip, but after unsuccessfully looking for this in a few shops, weary feet and time constraints pushed me to compromise by using the strawberry laces instead.
It didn't give the finished effect I was looking for though, but tasted yum anyway.
Our other celebration yesterday, was that we also proudly attended our future DIL's Graduation yesterday morning before the birthday party.
Well done Clare!
Here is the card I made a card for her using the Geranium digi sketch I posted recently.
I coloured it using oil pastles blended with odourless mineral spirit on a compressed paper stump.
The photograph was taken at night with the flash on, so the colours are a bit paler than in real life.
Thankfully I've had a few days off work this week. I wouldn't have managed to fit all this in otherwise.
I've been very busy, and am feeling a bit tired after all this now, but it's been a very happy start to the week.
Unfortunately, I had to attend a work related meeting in Glasgow today, but....
It's Friday tomorrow, I don't have to go to work. I've just a bit of tidying up, and some laundry to catch up on, then all going well, I plan to get my feet up, pencils out and relax with my sketch book.
I hope you have a good day tomorrow too.
