Three generations baking a special cake together

Hi all, hope you are all well, life has certainly been very busy here lately, but did get time to play on Sunday and had another go at a scrap booking page, this is the day before Rosanna's 11th Birthday (she is now 14, way behind lol, she is taller than the oven now!), with her Aunty Jen and her granny (Jen's and Edward's Mum) when they were here on holiday.  As you can image it was a very special cake. 
Also so chuffed got picked as a Some Odd Girl Fav for my Mooey Slippers, WOO HOO, thanks girls, hello to my newest followers can't believe I am at 200!!  Couldn't visit you all as some didn't have blog links.

Anyway onto my inspiration over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I made this page using Tiny Baker Tia, I just loove her she is so cute and from Some Odd Girl and is available from the M4M Store here.
Scrapbook Sisters have a challenge to stamp some of your background and thankfully you have a month, so this gave me time to play lol!  I have also followed Some Odd Girl's Sketch.  The photo is not the best as I took it with my phone at the time (you can actually see my reflection in the oven lol)
Sorry it is not a good photo, didn't matter how many I took lol!  I think it is because it is 12 x 12?

A closer look at the spicas, special effects, dazzling diamonds glimmer mist, I also made a frame of SU blue glitter around the photo, for extra sparkle!  There are lots of rhinestones added to the papers, ribbon etc,

Just love this beautiful sentiment from LOTV, which I bought with my voucher from Lorraine (thanks again Lorraine)

Copics, spicas and multiliner used

Copics, spicas and a huge selection of stamps all available from our Mad for Markers Store
