So I turned 30 two months ago. It was a really great family day. We had a wonderful family lunch at a beautiful local beach and restaurant, at Clontarf beach.
I was surrounded by my family and the kids had a fabulous time.

So I decided to scrap one of my photos of my man, my daughter and me for the current monthly challenge at 123 Challenge blog.

The criteria this month is:

I obviously used the colour red, the word "happy" is in my title and I handmade 3 little balloons.

Notice the gorgeous Ah Scrap kraft doily and Clear cuts doily, that I have coloured with black paint.
