December 7: Dan's 30th birthday party. There were some great costumes - smurf, superman, a ghostbuster complete with music, school and brownie uniforms - but the birthday boy's Cool Running lycra suit probably had the highest wow factor. It was a...brave choice. ;) I went as a Cabbage Patch doll, making myself a wig from wool, a strip of fabric and lots of spray adhesive.
The page opposite this (still needs some finishing touches so haven't shared yet) is quite bright and chaotic so I knew I wanted more breathing space here to balance it out. I'd already pulled the chipboard 7 out of my stash and wanted to make it work here. Gold stars and enamel dots are the embellishment I (finally) decided on.
