It Isn't Lantern Festival Unless Something Gets Burnt

We celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival over the weekend. The kiddies had fun...And Hello Kitty got 1st degree burns....This happened to my rabbit lantern too when I was little, and also one of last year's lanterns, so I can see Beth is carrying on a grand tradition.

And speaking of tradition....

Layout Title: "Reminisce" (can't believe I had to look up how to spell "reminisce" - don't tell the MOE ok?)
I like
1. how the Purple Onion definition stamps turned out on the right side.
2. The photo - yes, that's me (and no, I cannot be bothered to try to look like that everyday)
3. How the coloours came together - everything looks sepia now!
Song for the day: "We'll go dancing in the dark.....walking through the park and reminiscing..."
