Today, I'm sharing Week 10...
Highlights from this week | Week 10 was my birthday week, which consisted of a morning at school dressed as Miss Honey from Matilda for World Book Day, a birthday lunch at TGI Fridays, a birthday tea at home with cupcakes and Prosecco and a birthday dinner with two friends, after which we watched The Bourne Identity. I also went for a Chinese buffet with my family for dinner the next evening. So yeah, celebrated a LOT! Haha. My best present was a pair of Ray-Bans to replace the ones I lost last year...I've missed them tonnes!
Thoughts on this spread | I loved using the Neverland Project Life kit from Studio Calico on this spread...the colours are beautifully spring-like, which really matched the colours in some of my photos and made for a really happy birthday spread. I wanted to include something a little bit different than normal to mark my birthday, so I filled a Studio Calico vellum pocket with sequins and used a 2 and a 7 Studio Calico paper clip to show my new age. I love how it turned out. I wish I'd taken photos of my birthday dinner at my friends' house and the Chinese dinner the following evening, but I was having too much fun to remember! This is something that I struggled with a lot on holiday too...getting the balance between taking pictures at the time so you can document it later and enjoying the moment while you can. It's a tough one.
