Mess or Masterpiece? Ice cream birthday


Mess or Masterpiece? Ice cream birthday

This photo was taken by DH on our son, Cody's 14th birthday.

With Cody’s busy May schedules, we adopted a tradition of heading
to the ice cream shop for a scoop to go to celebrate his birthday,
no matter what other commitments we might have.
We have squeezed in some pretty quick scoops over the years,
between concerts and baseball games and track meets...

..But every year I enjoy my scoop in the front seat of the car,
giggly boys in the back, hubby by my side,
and privately celebrate the anniversary of the day I became "Mom."

    Definitely a masterpiece! I had to make sure that's what this was, as I couldn't believe it! You got a good mix of items and put them all to excellent use. The art diary girl makes a great "mom" embellishment and the colors all work well together also. Your journaling is super - any tradition involving ice cream is a winner for sure:)
    What great paper choices you drew! And I love the way you used them. That's a cute cluster, too with the flowers & branches and even the doll. Such a sweet tradition, too. Thanks for telling us about it.
