Birthday Adventures

I’d have to say that this has been these most amazing birthday!!! The birthday spoilage started a week ago when mum and dad sent me a sizzix! It is an amazing cutting and embossing machine, and I have big plans for it! Then, on Wednesday night after work Josh gave me the most wonderful and thoughtful present of all my favourite things. I love blueberries so he found me blueberry wine, I love tea so he found a cute happy birthday tea! Do read the “engrish” 🙂 he also got me two wonderful craft books to inspire me as I work towards my craft dreams 🙂 and he gave it all to me in the cutest bag!

But this is only the beginning! As soon as I opened my presents we raced out the door to catch the night bus to Tokyo!

After a long night of almost no sleep we arrived at Disney Sea! We waited for the park to open, it was very exciting! People race in to get fast pass tickets, but being a Thursday the racing wasn’t overly necessary!

At the moment Disney is celebrating Easter and Spring, so there were lots of beautiful floral displays and Easter egg shaped characters.
