October 28

Every year on October 28, I turn 28. I've been doing this for a few years....... and my body is not feeling so "28" any more........ and I'm in a creative slump, so I haven't shown any journal work lately..... Poor crabby Martha.....

Ray is 4 days older than me (so, yes, he's 28 too...). I don't really celebrate birthdays but I was happy to indulge Ray..... I made this card for him. It was very simple, but I LOVE it! The image is Teesha Moore's (zettiology).And I made this coffee cuff for him(aren't Day of the Dead images so fun?)Here he is blowing out the candle on the cake. I made the cake (with a little help from my friend Betty)(Crocker). (It's carrot cake with a whipped cream cheese icing)I'm blaming my mother for the fact that I can't frost a cake -- She never taught me how -- She always bought our birthday cakes. I don't think that I've ever bought a birthday cake. I always make them . (ummm, although I seem to remember sticking candles in a frozen McCain Deep and Delicious more than once...). The cute little decorations were from Megan when she sent the Halloween tag books back (pics of those on Halloween).Are you wondering why I didn't do cupcakes? Well, they're coming. I have to make 60 for tomorrow. And I have to make 40 bags of popcorn for my K kids for Wednesday (we'll be playing 2 games, watching a movie and eating popcorn. On Halloween they are way too excited to do any work -- and when they play they end up going crazy -- I don't like to have a party and fill them up with junk either -- they'll get enough of that later)
