Well we have spent 3 days at Disneyland/California Adventure Park and we have had a ball (except for 'space mountain', AAAAHHHH!!!), all the rides have been great. Thursday was not too busy and we were able to get most of the major rides done. Friday the queues were a little longer, but the boys were great! and were happy to stand in line for about 40 min.

Well, we had a great flight over from oz (not too much sleep though), and we were through customs in like 1/2 hour (fantastic for LA). Here is a photo of Liam in his seat ...
He had his own little TV screen with his own programs that ran for the entire flight. Needless to say he was a very happy little camper .... and because of the lack of sleep here is a picture later that day in the hotel ....
The weather is great, really warm and sunny and so we are swimming in the pool every day. Here is Calum & Dad ....
We are having a great time and I will do another post later today .... talk again soon ...

I really enjoyed this challenge, and am very happy with how the card has turned out. I love paper piecing (the cupcake), and will have to get some more stamps that I can use for this (he! he!).
Stamps: SU! Birthday Best
Card: Kraft, chocolate chip & soft sky
Paper: SU! DS 'Notebook'
Ink: Chocolate chip
Accessories: Chocolate polytwill ribbon, hemp twine, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, paper snips
I am not really happy with these colors, but I did like the way the card turned out. I used my SU! color coach and chose barely banana, perfect plum and gable green. The stamps I used were bold butterfly, short & sweet and flitting by wheel.
