Mad for Markers R and RV Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Today I have shared some Copic colouring using R's & RV's over on the Mad For Markers store blog. This post is to try and inspire you to have a go at colouring with R's & RV's, and to hopefully encourage you to also join in with the Mad For Markers Challenge for February, which is to use R's & RV's in your Copic Creations.
I totally challenged myself on this one, to colour the spunky Greeting Farm Madden (which is available in the Mad For Marker Store), using only R's & RV's. To check out my full post head on over to the Mad For Markers Store Blog.
Here is a little sneak peek
Till next time,

Head Over Heels...

A quick share from me today, of a layout I shared over on the Scraploot Blog last week.
This layout is a photo of my boys and I taken on my 30th Birthday last year in November. I was absolutely spoilt. I have absolutely loved using this Lily Bee Head Over Heels Collection, as although it is quite feminine, it is not too over the top. I will have a couple more layouts to share over the coming weeks using this collection. Hope you are inspired by some of my creations.....
