Get Messy Art Journal & link up! Let's Parrrtay!

Happy Thursday folks! Why happy? Yes, because on Thursday's we Parrrtay! Sharing some pages from my Get Messy Art Journal! The prompt for this month was to throw a party! Take a peek at my party pages! 
So the prompt was plan a party. Since I got to select who was coming I invited my mom and dad. I am going to get deep on you here. Since this party was make believe I thought why not!? These people here are my parents. My mom died a month after I started kindergarten. Exactly a month after my 5th birthday. I don't even remember a birthday with her. I don't own a lot of photos of her so this was a scanned copy of one of the photos I do have of her. This picture was taken way before they had us eight girls. I used a party bag to place my picture on top of and inside I wrote the details of how my party would be.

This here is my second page. Please don't laugh...  one of my first attempts at drawing. I drew what I wanted at my party and then used colored water pencils to color over them.  I would love to have my parents there and treat them as royals!
