Hi Copic Lovers,

Firstly I must apologise, I have nothing to show you today :(   After a couple of weeks of sickness in our house (I'm over Winter lol), and also working extra days so I can go on holidays soon, I've just run out of time.

I do want to remind you about the current challenge over at Mad For Markers.  This fortnight, the challenge is to "create a scene", and use your Copics of course !! 

If you head over to the M4M challenge blog now, you'll see some awesome inspiration from the Design Team.  And you can scroll down here to see my inspiration from last week.

Also, don't forget to check out the Mad 4 Markers online store, for all your Copic needs.  Sammi's also got some awesome stamps in store and if she's out of stock of anything, send her an email and she'll do her best to get it in for you.

Anyway, thanks again for stopping by and I apologise for having nothing to show you.  I'm hoping to have some time to myself this weekend, and as long as my mojo doesn't go AWOL, hopefully I'll get lots of crafting done.

Take care, and I'll see you back here again very soon.

Happy Sunday !!

Just stopping by with a quick post to show you a few of the layouts I've recently done.  A few weekends ago, I went with some scrapbooking friends for a weekend away.  It was such a lovely time away from everything, where I could just scrap, scrap, scrap.  Up until then, I'd been focussing all my time on cards, so it was a nice change to make some layouts.  I've got so many photos sitting on my shelf, and I've now got the bug to do something with them lol.

The first layout is of my 4 year old son at the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt on Good Friday this year.  It was so much fun, and we're already looking forward to next year.

This layout is of my late grandparents.  I found these photos after my Grandma passed away ... I just love how dressed up she is, so pretty.

The last layout is of my eldest son when he was 10 months old.  He's now almost 13 !!!!  It's about time I scrapped some of his baby photos, don't you think lol ...

Anyway, I have a lot more layouts to show you, but I'll save them for another day and won't bore you all today lol.   I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.  It's a beautiful sunny day here today, and I'm sitting on the back pergola enjoying the sun.  The kids are playing in the yard and we're just waiting for the roast to cook for lunch .... yummmmy!

More Inspiration ..... M4M's Spica Challenge

Good Morning Copic Lovers !!

This fortnight, over at Mad For Markers, the challenge is to create with Spica pens .... and who doesn't love a bit of sparkle !!!

My inspiration is below, and I've coloured this gorgeous La La Land Superhero Luka using some Spicas.

Unfortunately the sparkle doesn't show up too well, however I've used the Red Spica on his cape and mask, and the Gold Spica on his star and wrist bands.  I've also used blue on his pants, and black for the boots .... every good Superhero needs sparkle !!!

So make sure you head on over to Mad For Markers Challenge Blog and show us your entry using your Spica pens.  You'll also be able to check out some more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Also, if you want to add to your collection of Spica Pens, pop over to Sammi's online store where she has all your Copic needs.

Thanks again for stopping by.

Spica Challenge at Mad For Markers

Hi fellow Copic lovers !!

I hope you are all well today, and manage to find some crafting time this weekend.   Firstly I must apologise for not posting this before today, however we've been having serious internet issues here for the last week, but we're all back to normal now, so here I am !!

The new challenge this fortnight over at Mad For Markers, is to use Spica pens in your creation.  Below is my inspiration for this challenge.

Unfortunately the Spica doesn't show up as well as I would have liked, however I've used Lipstick and Red Spicas on Edwin's boots and black Spica on his pants and hat.  I love this Edwin stamp - he's so cute !!!

So, head over to the M4M Challenge Blog now, and show us your Spica creations!!  There might even be a prize in it !!  You'll also be able to check out some amazing inspiration by the other DT members - that is something you don't want to miss !!!

I hope to be back tomorrow to share some layouts I made last week.  It's been such a long time since I've made an actual layout - I've been so wrapped up in card making - but I went with a group of friends last week to a mini retreat, and with no distractions (ie: kids lol), I managed to make a few layouts. 

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks again for your comments - they are very much appreciated.
