Ish cake

This is the 6th birthday cake I have attempted for my kids. My Mom always made our cakes so I was determined when I had kids that I would do the same. Connor is 2 today and is having an 'under the sea' party tomorrow. I've had a good idea of what I was going to do for a few weeks, but was planning on using coloured coconut on the cake board as I usually do, but this morning when my son found shrimps in the shop I had a light bulb moment and decided to ice the whole cake board, I am so pleased with how it has turned out and Connor says, "like ish cake." :)

Happy Birthday my precious baby, I hope you have a lovely party tomorrow xx

30 and Loving it

Wow I'm shocked by how long it is since I have blogged, life just seems to get away from me. Also I have not been scrapping as much as usual, but this LO was inspired by the UKS weekly challenge :) Thanks xx

I turned 30 in November and was dreading it for about a year. Some how the jump from 29 to 30 suddenly seemed like a rather large one. My husband planned a boat cruise disco party down the Thames and with many of my friends able to join us I was really looking forward to the party but wishing I didn't have to turn 30 in order to celebrate.

Well the day arrived and instead of feeling 'old' like I'd expected I felt accomplished. I looked at my life and felt proud of who I was on my 30th birthday and mostly I felt so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.

The LO is some photos taken at my party of some of my wonderful friends,the journalling is hidden under the big photo, you can see the tab and it reads:

At 30 I have:

A wonderful husband (Married 8 years)

2 Amazing sons

A loving family

Fantastic Friends

The job I always wanted... (Primary school teacher)

What more could I ask for?

Thank you to everyone who has come in and out of life, I have been touched by so many extraordinary people in so many different ways.

Thanks for looking xx
