NEW CATALOGUE countdown ..Sneak Peek

Hello there not long left from this Stampin’Up! year and I am so excited about the reveal of the new catalogue. I have been busy with sample making, stroking and admiring the new stuff for weeks now and I will be so relived  when I can settle into a routine with the new book, I L O V E it !!
But right now you can have a peak at Luca’s Birthday cake. He had a Pirate Party and I was roped in to help with the invites, the cake, the treasure hunt( the little ones loved this), doing all the face painting, help with the cooking you name it LOL. I loved every second of it and my favourite boy in the whole wide world deserved the best party ever, both myself and my sister dressed up as pirates and it was such a laugh. As you can imagine I didn’t have much time left to take many photos and I am gutted but my sister has some.
Here’s the cake
bday cake
It was a proper rough looking pirates ship!!  I had so much fun doing it and it didn’t take me long at all chatting with my sister till the early hours of the morning LOL
Here’s the close up with that all important number showing, where did the time go?bday cake close
Luca and his young guests enjoyed it and the inside was a very yummy chocolate cake made in the Thermomix(of course).
And here’s the Birthday Pirate !! I love this guy soooo much!!!
Ended up making him a card to match the theme of course and I will share that one another day, because right now I am all flat out this week getting ready for my New Catalogue launch Party this Saturday and
