My Little Masterchef

Todays layout is another layout I shared over on the Scraploot blog the other week, of my cute little Masterchef. The background info on photos in the layout, is we purchased some cereal that was running a Junior Masterchef promotion and B wanted to enter it. So I logged onto website and entered the info required for the competition and then forgot all about it. Then one day I recieved a random parcel card from the post office, so went to collect it and surprising there it was a Junior Masterchef Pizza set. B loves to make pizzas, or anything for that  matter and now everytime he helps out in the kitchen, he dons his Junior Masterchef apron and hat.

Scraploot Step By Step Reveal

A few weeks back I created a layout for the Scraploot blog, with step by step instructions using the one of my all time favourite collections, Lily Bee Head over Heels. I was also lucky enough to use to We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool and I have absolutely fallen in love with it. It makes handstitching on your pages super quick and easy. I adore the photos on this layout. These photos were some selfies taken on my 30th Birthday of my little man and myself. This layout definitely reminds me of why I scrapbook... the emotions and memories that just looking at this stirs in me makes me so happy.

Copic Catch Up

For the past couple of weeks I've not been in the greatest of health... I have not been able to sit, stand or sometimes even lay comfortably. Making anything hard to accomplish. Thankfully I have an adoring man who has been amazing and taking care of me, our little man and everything else that there is to do around the house.
So no work, scrapping or colouring for me over the past couple of weeks. I am so ready to get back into it, but still need to take it easy.
Today though I thought I would share the last couple of images that I coloured up for my posts over on the Mad For Markers blog,  Last month there was a fantastic challenge to colour with R's & RV's. I challenged myself to colour as much of the images with these colours as possible and I absolutely love the results.
