so i want to thank everyone whose supported me through out the gr8 cre8tive idol contest at Just Cre8. Unfortunately i was eliminated during the last round, thanks to all who sent me notes of encouragement and support. I make it sound like it was the end of the world (it isn't) but i was very, very disappointed.

Today i went to the hairdresser's to get a new do. i got my hair colored brown (permanent color) this time and a new cut. I needed a change and i'm hoping this will bring me luck in my job search.

OK, so this past week was Brady's 3rd birthday. He chose the theme...Cars. He also love's Diego and Curious George so i managed to celebrate with all 3 characters. I had made cupcakes to bring at daycare, on these i put little Diego figurines for the kids.

For at home that night i took the same cupcakes and put a Curious George on Brady's with candles.

Here's a picture of Brady and Charlie the day of his birthday. Brady got a bycicle with training wheels from us (he just loves it!) and a Diego coloring book and "the Jungle book" movie from Granpapi (my dad)

Then on Sunday i had a party with some of his friends and family, he got lots of CARS hotwheels and other CARS stuff, we had a really good time and Brady really enjoyed himself. Of course the cake was Lightning McQueen, Brady had chosen the cake mold a few months back (this was the first time i was using a character mold) so i baked the cake on friday, iced it on saturday (took me almost 3 hrs)and we ate it on sunday afternoon. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, but i'm not sure i'd do the "star" icing technique again, it was really long!

thank you, thank you, thank you...

i made it to the fourth round (again with the most votes?! 24!)
i can't wait to see what the next challenge will be, and thank you so much everybody for supporting me in this contest. I'll let you know when the next vote will take place.

Today is Brady's birthday party, he's 3! his actual b-day was last tuesday, but the party is today. In 1h30 hrs to be exact, so i gotta go and get some things finished!
I'll post some pictures later ( i spent about 3 hrs icing the cake yesterday)

here's the layout i presented for the third challenge.
