Happy 15th birthday Natalie

My daughter turns 15 next week. We had her party this weekend. She wanted to take 3 friends to the teddy bear factory at Sylvia Park to make cuddly friends then have a sleep over at our place with videos and pizza. It all sounded great until she mentioned that she wanted a Perry the platypus cake (from Finneus and Ferb). Cake decorating in certainly not my forte! Well it turned into a great family project. Mark, Sophie and I (and even Benji) all chipped in and this is the final design - not too bad eh!
The colours over at The Color Room this week were great for these photos. I was inspired to use a grid design by Jenni Hufford's layout over at the October Afternoon blog. I wanted to add several small supporting photos to the main picture but I wanted my LO to remain structured and uncluttered. This design was perfect. My papers are mainly from the MME 'Lost and Found' collection. I was able to use my 6x6 booklets and avoid cutting up a whole sheet of paper for just a small square of paper. I cut the paper doily using a Cheery Lynn doily die and my cuttlebug. Scotty Craft have a good selection of these cool dies available in store.
