What a wonderful surprise to receive. No wonder your face was lit up with a beaming smile. Love the marzipan figure. Wouldn't have lasted two minutes in our house haha. We both lurve marzipan. Have a great weekend. Let's hope the sun keeps shining. Pxx

And it's only tomorrow - woohoo. And promise you'll come and stop this time!
Hope that cake was as tasty as it looks.


What a wonderful box! The figure is adorable! Love the layout and aren't we all glad for "B" sides sometimes. :)


Great layout and what a fab cake. Hope it was nice.


That sounds and looks amazing,Alexa....and such a wonderfully bright layout.
And thank you so much for offering to pick me up tomorrow....I am soooo looking forward to the weekend.

What a lovely and cheerful post you have here, Alexa. Enjoy yourself this weekend!


Your weekend sounds like great fun! What a bright and cheerful page; it certainly cheered me up here in gray and cold Rochester. I'll be more than grateful for spring!


OK, well that is seriously cute, and love your bright page.


oooh, I love the surprise and your page is perfectly festive! Right on for the subject and the photos!


It is so summery!!!
I love the flags.


This is such a fun change in colour pallette for your usual style presented here Alexa - very summery!


What a lovely summery layout and the ake is fantastic!

That cake is amazing - how lovely and I hope that you get to do exactly as you hope this summer. :) Was lovely meeting you this weekend.

Aww! The box contents revealed! And what a smashing way to reveal them! So bright and cheery on these drab pre-Spring days!


Wow, Alexa! I'm catching up a bit, with people's blogs and I started with yours ('A' for Alexa etc). How colourful and bright and amazingly cheery! Not quite your "usual thing" either - I sort of associate your scrapping style with understated and muted colours, clean & crisp lines, probably "boxes" and "lines" too... And then you go and make this, which is so different - but so lovely and Such Fun!


So lovely and bright and how I would love to have met with you all last weekend! I hope you all had a wonderful time in MK.


What a completely happy layout - love the colors!
