A whirlwind week

I've been busier this week than I thought I would be, that's for sure! But I've made it a point to finish a page a day, no matter how late I have to stay up. =)
Last night I finished this one to document some of the things I'm "into" right now at my age, things I'm thankful for, how proud I am to be where I am. I really just started cutting and gluing without a plan, which is why you don't see the journaling- I just wasn't sure where to put it.


My solution was the envelope behind the picture. I actually went through my supplies yesterday to do some organizing (with my new Ikea drawers!) and found that I have about 20 of these Maya Road envelopes- guess I'd better start using them up!
And this page went up on the Pebbles blog on Monday:


I had a lot of fun using pink on a page- with all boys around here, pink rarely makes an appearance in my scrap room!
And yesterday, some of our good friends came by to help me celebrate my birthday and brought me this:


Yes friends, that's right, a SWISS CAKE ROLL cake! It had ice cream and chocolate syrup inside too. (Swiss cake rolls are my weakness). There's a bit waiting in my freezer for me right now...
