EDM #117- something round

An entry in my travel journal from my recent trip to Art & Soul in Virginia and perfect for this challenge I thought. I celebrated my birthday there and had the cutest little round b-day cake. I was totally ok with the fact that it didn't have candles however, I ended up getting another cake at home for *wish making* and that one had ALL the candles - ahhh, lots of wishes!

Anyhow, a wonderfully creative and fun, fun day - it'll be hard to top that one next year :)

Happy Happy Birthday, Laura!!! How fun to have that miniature cake, and your gift bag is really nice too (and, of course, a wonderful drawing of it!). I'm behind on my EDM's, so maybe I can get some done this weekend . . .
You've done a very nice job on the new blog, all the best on it and your new ventures. Glad to see you on Greeting Card Universe, too!
