Another "just because" layout

Hello again. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. This is a page I completed yesterday with a photo of me on my birthday. Because it was a "big" birthday this year, we decided to go to Melbourne to celebrate and have some time away from the drudgery. On my actual birthday we dined at No. 35, a posh restaurant on the 35th floor at the Sofitel Hotel. The views were amazing and the food wasn't too bad either.

Anyway, for those of you who don't know me well, I do enjoy my happy hour on the weekends. This happy hour was in the middle of the week but because we were on hols and it was a special day, we went out a bit earlier and had cocktails. As I was creating this page I thought to myself that I'm hoping that this whole year will be filled with lots of happy hours, not just with a nice drink, but filled with lots of happiness and excitement. Hence my journalling.

I've used Prima pp and the title is from ScrapFX, Chandelier from Dusty Attic and the flourish from Imaginarium. I so love chipboard! The flowers are from Kaiser Craft and Prima. *Please note the sewing Kim Ewins - teacher extraordinaire! :)

I've also framed the photo with affirmations and a reminder to myself that I must embrace my age, because I'm a tad in denial about the whole thing. Mainly because it only seems like yesterday that I turned 21. A sad fact of life I know. So that's it for this weekend. Thanks for dropping by once again xx
