Another lot of candles puffed out.

Well, I now have a six year old boy in the house.

Happy Birthday Alexander.

Not the best 'scrapworthy' shot of him but hey ... this is real, this is how it happened and this is how it will be remembered. Atleast I mananged to get him to change his shirt before the party. I hadn't planned on face painting being offered and the cake looks a bit weird - but it was what he wanted and he thought it was just perfect. (It's an omnitrix from Ben 10 - in case you didn't know!)

Thanks for all your comments about my kit work. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that other people might like my stuff. So often I look at it and see all the imperfections and 'should'ves' and if only's ... and then you lot say nice stuff and I think maybe it's o.k after all. I enjoy creating and if it looks good to others then that's great too. I should just relax and be more positive.

Kelly (memoryfairy) wrote the best quote for me in my circle journal. Will copy it out here when I next get a chance and you can all benefit from it's wisdom. Must take photos of it too ....

I need more hours in the day!

Happy Birthday Alexander!!!! I think he looks sooo cute with his face painted! But yes, I imagine you are wondering how to match the yellow paint with the green cake and shirt when you scrap the photo ... ROFL! Isn't it funny what you think about when you're a scrapper?!

I must be really behind the times because I haven't even heard of Ben 10! Should I find out more?? I have a 5-year-old boy, should he know about such things? :-0

Perfect cake choice!! My Mr 6 has actually taught himself how to book Ben 10 on sky.... just perfect when you are watching your grownup programs at 8.30 - then Ben 10 comes on!!

Happy Birthday Alexander!
