Challenge 142 Birthday Bash

Hi There,
this time over on it is Design Team Sister Raquel's turn to pick the challenge and this time she has chosen Birthday's . We must include elements to do with Birthdays.

This time I decided to do a layout of my Dad's 80th Birthday. We all went up there and took afternoon tea with him and my Mum in a lovely old hotel on the promenade in Llandudno.

He use to drive buses for a living so his birthday cake was just like one. He also in his youth played cricket hence the umpire and the "80 Not Out" but his one other love (other than my Mum) was his garden.
On the layout I have used lots of bits and bobs and I think he'll love it when he sees it.
Right now its your turn to join in, but do checkout the other girls birthday treats.


  1. Now i know where you all get your gardening skills from! ;) Wonderful layout Sue! Had fun reading about your Dad as well! :)

  2. Sue, your layout is so well thought out and so full of meaning. What a great way to help celebrate your dad's 80th birthday. There's so many things to look at and I love them all
