3/9/13 Saturday Color Challenge: "Happy Birthday!"


3/9/13 Saturday Color Challenge: "Happy Birthday!"

I love these photos from my first birthday party as so many family members were involved and present to help me celebrate. My Godmother, Auntie Sue made me a "Merry-Go-Round" cake which remained my favorite so was repeated a few times in later years. Since my birthday fell on Ash Wednesday and the first day of Lent, I had a "Mardi Gras" party the day before instead so everyone could enjoy and eat cake. The house was decorated and festive with streamers, hanging balls, etc. and it appears I enjoyed my first piece of cake, too.
Journaling Reads -
"My first birthday fell on Ash Wednesday, so my Party was a festive “MardiGras” one the day before. All my grandparents, cousins, aunts, great-aunts and uncles were there to enjoy and celebrate with me."
For this layout I used:
MRE Inspired Child Collection
SNU SS Embellishment Templates: Photo Clusters
BMU SS Styles - Sequin Sparkles-Gradients 8501 Tool Set Super Biggie (retired)



    How wonderful. I love the photos and your page.
    What a great special memory. I love your LO Marilyn. I don't have many baby photos so I envy you. Kay
