Adore (Mei Li Paperie)

For my Kaisercraft Design Team Application please click here.

Hello!  Well its Saturday afternoon and I've just had two of my favourite things - coffee and sushi!  When I was pregnant I missed sushi so much, and I completely lost my taste for coffee.  With feeding Brielle every three hours around the clock, one coffee a day is very helpful, and I could very easily eat sushi everyday! 

This week I decided to play along with the May Colour Challenge over at Mei Li Paperie.  Colour challenges are so much fun as they make you go through your stash, and use up scraps.  My layout is the first layout I've made of all three of my kids, and is a photo I took when Brielle was 5 days old, and the day I got home from hospital.  I love that Sam and Azaria are fascinated by all things baby, including Brielle sleeping in the bassinet.  

I used all sorts of bits and pieces on this one, including some Echo Park Everyday Eclectic, which I admit I love so much I've hoarded it!  Other items include Basic Grey, Pebbles, and Crate Paper.

And here is the awesome colour inspiration palette:

I had a lot of fun playing along with this challenge, and will definitely play again.

And now on family news, can you believe that Brielle is one month already! Here are some photos:

Sam and Azaria love her so much!

Thanks for reading and looking.
