Aleeza's fifth birthday today!

Hello sweet peeps,

Today was Aleeza's fifth birthday and trust me I can literally see the years flying. We had a small celebration in school. She wanted a Minnie Mouse cake which of course I outsourced since all my time is spent in my craft room. It was a lovely chocolate cake and the kids just loved it and so did the teachers. Her class teacher asked me for birthday decorations which I had and she did a swell job with them. And she did face painting for the kids and they were over the top with joy. The kids are preparing a song by Bruno Mars called 'You can count on me' for Valentine's Day. So the teacher asked the kids to sing it for her along with dance movements. It was so touching to see them wiggle and shake to the touching lyrics and music.

Below is a picture with her class mate and best friends - she was so excited that she could not stand still! Lol. Aleeza is the girl with green roses in her hair and the little girl next to her is her best friend and so is the boy with a rainbow on his forehead. Their faces are covered in face paint and sweat specially Aleeza's. I am the one who is holding her tight (I still have some years to do that).
It turned out to be such a fun day for me and the all the kids in class.



Down below is my card for her - a Penny Black stamp with printed paper (gift wrap) and a home made flower mounted on foam flower with punched leaves which have been recycled from an old super market brochure.  Aleeza loves baking cookies with me so I thought this image was just right for her. Of course this little girl is baking cup cakes and not cookies but baking all the same. There is a pink crystal on the cup cake which you can't spot as the picture is too small. And you know why the picture is small??? Because I don't want you to spot the flaws in my colouring. Lol.


Her gift was a  small stuffed Donald Duck which she asked for - how happy they are with so little when they are little.

I will enter this card in:

See you later.

Love,

Monica
