Celebrating birthdays and anniverseries...

Lots of celebrations going on at my place these days, both my own birthday (I'm 51 now, can't believe it) and also celebrating being married for 14 years. These last days of summer, with really nice weather, have been perfect for family gatherings outside in the garden. I've enjoyed it so much...

For my birthday I made a lemon cheesecake and a cherry pie, according to the recipe it was "Agent Cooper's cherry pie" (From Twin Peaks, if you remember the TV-series). Delicious with some vanilla sauce.

Here's the cheesecake, I decorated it with lots of fruit.

 
 
 
 
 
 
And here's a simple digital layout I made about DH and I celebrating our wedding anniversary. It feels like it was a long time ago since I last used digital stuff...
This is a freebie kit by "Captivated Visions". She's selling her kits at Scrapbookgraphics.com.

PL is a lot of fun...

I've been doing a lot of Project Life pages recently, feeling inspired I guess and a bit more energetic than usual. I'm doing them by month not by week, haven't got pics for all weeks so I think it's easier this way.
And it really is a lot of fun...

Here's a part of January... I made some cucumber sandwishes and Madeleines for Afternoon Tea. A brittish custom I find fascinating. You can buy the grey card in the middle at Geralyn Sy's shop (In a Creative Bubble). She's a very talented designer.


 
 
 
Here's the whole page...

 
 
 
Next, a page from February, my nephew Edwin's 6th birthday.

 
 
 
He made his own birthdaycake, a replica of the family car, a Toyota. Not an easy goal.... Mum helped, of course.


 
 
 
 
Here's a part of June, documenting our Midsummer celebration with the traditional Strawberry Cake.
 


 
 
 
And here's the rest of the page...


 
 
 
Oh my, what a long post, sorry! Thanks for watching:)
