Photo Inspiration Midway Reminder

I'm a bit late today sorry. Been super busy and have to fit crafting in around everything at the moment. Had a nice visit with the in-laws last week then Coen's Halloween party which was a hoot! BFF and her hubby were up from England for a works night out so we went out for the day on Saturday to the Range. We had verbal diarrhea as we hadn't seen each other for a couple of years lol. 

We had our first proper overnight with Coen Saturday till was brilliant but I'm so glad I started my family when I was 20. By the time Nic took him home Sunday night I was pooped lol. 

We're on week two of our Photo Inspiration Challenge...

and here's my card....

I've used one of the new Skinny Malinky's, Babs. I just love her hairband. I've got a friend who used to wear big hairbands like this years ago and she kinda reminds me of her. I printed Babs onto PTI white cs and coloured her with my Copics. A lot of my Copics are drying out and I'm not a happy camper :-( I don't get to use them as much as I used to so maybe that's the problem. Do you like the Birthday sentiment? Apart from being a bit crooked I love it. It's a PTI die and I had a quick play with it over the weekend (Coen allowing lol) and I think it may be my favourite...for now ;-D I added GA to the umbrella and Bab's wellies and WOS to her hairband and scarf.

I'm really going to have to stop taking closeup pictures or get new glasses so I make sure I colour in the lines :-O I might have to invest in one of those magnifier lamp thingamajigs. 

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Challenge 4 Everyone - Anything Goes
Card Mania - Anything Goes
Lexi's Creations - Birthday
Love To Scrap! - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes

I've had a bit of a dilemma trying to choose which picture of Coen to show you this week so be prepared...there's one or 5 for you to see lol.

Here he is at his party before his 12 guests and their moms arrived. There was one little boy aged 17 months old the rest were under 9 months!!!! They were actually very good though got pretty loud at times lol.

My little pumpkin

Mooma and Pooperman!! Notice Coen is sans his Superman costume...hence I renamed him Pooperman lololololol

This is  my favourite picture of Coen....I took it with my new phone. I've got it as my screen saver and keep pressing the button to see it lol. 

I took this picture Saturday night...OMG he's going to kill me when he's older. Mr Moobs ROFL!!

That's if for me today.... It's hubby's birthday and I'm going to make 
him a cake :-D

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

Catch ya later x

Sorry i haven't been around for such a long time have created lots of stunning creations since the last time i was here, just like todays card its beautiful and love the colours too...

As for little Coen...omg hasn't he grown loads, he is a right little cutie and i bet he loves having lots snuggles with Grandma :)

I know what you mean about having kids young because i had my 3 older boys when i was young and then when i was 30 i had my 4th boy and omg i am so pooped all the time as my little scallywag certainly keeps me on me toes lol

Lots of coffee does me good and keeps me going!! lol

Happy Birthday to your hubby and enjoy the cake!!
hugs and xxx
