2015-1974=41. So it must be true.

The celebrations were certainly less elaborate and extravagant this year, but nonetheless my birthday was celebrated and enjoyed. 

We lazed around in the morning and I opened my cards and was grateful for the replacement earphones for my iPhone as one of the little darlings lost mine. I was also surprised with a set of body shop goodies which smell divine.

After brunch we headed out to the beach, we were nearly derailed as, when we got to the top of North Devon we saw the snow on the top of Exmoor, but we held to the plan, time constraints mainly.

The beach was so busy and so beautiful, the dull and overcast sky seemed translucent, more interesting once we were on the beach. I dunno, maybe.

Favourite Moments:
1. Minty gnawing on a rock. If I had to eat Baker’s I would probably fancy a bit of stone too.

2. Mum & Lauren getting caught out by a wave. And, the silhouette photo I caught of them running.

3. Fudge trundling along, smiling I swear.

4. Louis and Ali playing footie.

5. Their patience as I attempted to get a photo of all of us.

I made this layout using my newestmostfavouritestpaperlineeverintheworldamen. Webster’s Pages Ocean Melody. 
I diecut the clouds on my sizzix eclips, I sewed the circles and borders, misted, a few embellies and I was done. Thanks to Sue for a fab sketch challenge, you can check out this challenge here. There will be a new one for Feb.

I made this one for a challenge over on UKS to use a quote from Frozen. 

I hope your week has some sea-spray in it (or river mist?). Although it looks much more like snow (yay!) x
