Show Us Your Stuff!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you've all got some great "outdoorsy" plans for this fantastic weekend. During the week I raided my stash so that I could jump straight into a project today without spending too much time indoors. My project is for the April 1st challenge over at Show Us Your Stuff!  This is the inspiration:

Plus for something extra we could try some quilling on our project, which I did.  Yes I know, I've used pink on a masculine page and a flower, but hey........I think I've pulled it off :) Besides, if Tim wants to use pink decorations on his cake, well he deserves to have pink decorations on the page I create about him -
fair enough? And I really wanted to add some quilling so hence the flower. As you can see I've used the colours in the lovely baby booties as my inspo.

We were addicted to this season's MKR so much that we decided to have a "cook off". We all took it in turns over one weekend to cook a meal. Tim went all out and made damper from scratch (he drew the line at cooking it in hot coals in the backyard), steak with a home-made garlic sauce, his own seasoned wedges and vegies plus a cake for dessert. Now normally when my offspring decide to create in the kitchen it doesn't usually include the cleaning up (yep, my job apparently), but this particular day the kitchen was cleaned to an inch of it's life with no input from me....Bonus! So of course the moment had to be recorded :)
TFL, have a great weekend.
