Eleventh Week - Focus 52 - Green

The theme this week was 'green'. I will admit, I mostly stuck to the colour green which was easy given the celebrations of this week. Around our house, St. Patrick's day gets noticed.

Picture one was taken while I was making my Rainbow Cake. This was the green layer being mixed.


I love how the green looks being mixed into the white batter. It turned out fantastically, if I do say so myself.

The other side of green is of course the environment. And finding these was fantastic for the theme of this week:

I have to say the colours of the green label and the pink notes are fantastic together.

Just as the snow pictures showed me winter was coming, grass pictures show me spring is coming.

Look at that green grass! This makes me very happy (and the son very frustrated).

This was my St. Patrick's day attire for this year:

I have some issues with St. Patrick - you know it was pagans and not snakes he got rid of, right? That I have issues with. As I said to a teacher in the staff room, "Happy O'Genocide Day" (after explaining what I had issues with). However, anything that unites people can be a good thing. And my son LOVES St. Patrick's day. So I made it as witchy as I could - link to the shirt I made is on the flickr site for that picture, striped socks and ruby slippers. Trying to blend the two works for me!
