I know, it's a redo..but reallllllyyy....There isn't much to say. Unity images make everything more beautiful. I used an image (one of the hearts) from the "We Treasure You" set and their Distressed Dots stamp
Several of these filled, with treats, are scattered about ready for an owner.
John turned 21 this weekend and we celebrated with cake! He spent the weekend with his sister - you know, doing the traditional things that a 21 year old does when officiating their ability to drink in public.
If you are a familiar with StampinUp, then you know this image. BUT, when I made the cake, I boyed it up with masculine colors. It was a really fun project and is "clean and simple", but folks, let me assure you that this 'lil cake took essentially all afternoon and evening to design and construct.
Super Fun. And Delish. I used a basic yellow-cake recipe (all home made no box) and yummy home made buttercream frosting. The inside of the cake included a layer of the raspberry jelly I made in August.
So there, an edible masterpiece.
Oh...and our last one year older reminding both my husband and I that we are getting closer to empty nest heaven nothing but older. (ha)
At the bottom of the hill, my little dude and I ventured to the water. The stillness and colors were breathtaking.
Oliver didn't help with the quiet stillness, because, well, he's an active boy, but he did pause for a moment at the water's edge.
We made our back towards the start, following the trail under the bridge.
Notice the ice on the edge of the road. That is probably the remaining snow from the bizarro October snowfall....because it really was a pleasant afternoon.
When we got back to the parking lot, I thought we probably didn't have much time, because I started seeing lots of bikes. I thought (based on their attire and intense expressions) that they were probably the faster ones at the front of the pack.
It wasn't hard to notice John and Dave when they were making their way towards us. My bike (the one John road) is BRIGHT yellow and green....when I saw I it, I knew it was them.
I was impressed. Our timing was pretty awesome. Oliver and I hadn't…
