We celebrated Nicholas's 5th birthday yesterday. He wanted a "clock cake" so that is what he got. I baked the cake (and cupcakes) and Rob did the decorating. Here is a picture of how it turned out.
It's not exactly how it looked in the book, but it was close enough and Nicholas loved it, so that was all that mattered.
And, to top it off, Nicholas got the BEST present that any little "artist" could get ...
Now on to some layouts ... I finally got to creating my 12 of 12 layouts for November and December. I'm still debating if I'm going to do the same kind of thing next year. If I do decide to take on a project like this, I may do a layout from pictures I took on certain Saturdays of each month. Trying to capturing "exciting" pictures during the week when I'm at work is kind of hard.
Here is my November 12 of 12 ...
And my December 12 of 12 ...
This layout was created for my Design your Life class (which sadly is now over).
And this layout is my interpretation from a sketch at Inspired Blueprints (created a lot of the elements with the Cricut).
That's it for now everyone. Enjoy this last day of 2008 - hope you are all doing something exciting!
We'll talk again in 2009!
