Tuesday Trigger

 (A sweet Celebration)
 I love food photos....especially the gorgeous ones! Check out the latest Tuesday Trigger photo (see above) ! The sweet photo makes me want to bring out the cake and celebrate. 

I have a few August events that are worth celebrating, namely, David's 18th birthday and our wedding anniversary! AND I will be off to an amazing trip of lifetime....blog break coming up soon!

I I created the banners with part of the kite stamp and kept the color scheme neutral and I like it!
And by the way do you know....what happiness is?
For my son David, happiness is grating the lemons and smell them
 For my daughter Stephanie, it is carrying the new fabulous Cambridge Satchel! It’s NEON. It’s ORANGE! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

Vic Lau said...

The card is so lovely! The ribbon on the cupcake is such a nice touch along with the lace backdrop to the cupcake.

Your son is an interesting one with the lemons and your daughter looks like a model :) You can add yours and Dr. John's photos and what happiness is. (I'm guessing yours is cardmaking? Dr. John's is...making cheeky remarks? :D)

Great take on the TT challenge. Wish I'd had time to play, but I've been too sick with an awful case of bronchitis. :( Hope you win, Virginia!
