We start a new theme over at MOO MANIA & MORE .
Hop over to the challenge blog to see the beautiful Moo cards
Rosie and Majo made for this theme.
I came up with a hybrid piece for this fortnight's topic.
It started with a handmade background.

And this little layout came into being with just a few minimal digital additions.

And  I  link this post  to Simply Neutrals #48.

Thank you for your lovely visit!
Wishing you a happy day!



  1. Aww Susi this so reminds me of my Children, my eldest was actually nic named smudge because he was always had food around his mouth. The sign of enjoyed food hee hee!
    Very very sweet page.
    Hugs of the day Tracey xx

  3. I think this spread is great, Susi. It is simply perfect for the sweets/treats theme at MM&M. I do like the neutral background, too. Nice monochromatic spread and some awesome sewing to elevate the spread to an even higher level.

  5. Wunderschön und auch ein bisschen lustig. Tolle Idee.
    Liebe Grüße

  6. Susi this has memories floating back for me. My lads always seemed to get food all over their faces, especially chocolate.

  16. Wunderschön! Überhaupt hast du in letzter Zeit wieder tolle Werke gezeigt. Leider bin ich im Moment wieder beruflich sehr eingespannt, darum lasse ich dir einfach mal ein Sammellob für all die schönen Werke da. Habe es genossen, mal wieder bei dir zu stöbern.

  17. That photo is so adorable and you showcased it beautifully 😁. I love the neutral colours and simplicity of this page! I always used to get food down my dresses when I was younger, sometimes I changed my outfits 3 times a day, my poor mum and all that washing 😉. I hope you are feeling much better dear Susi, enjoy the rest of your week! J 😊 x

  18. Oh Susi what a lovely page - and I do love that photo - perfect for the theme :-). That wee stitching accent is a wonderful use of stitching!

  19. I love the natural feel to this piece. The stitching and the textured background make a lovely work of art.

  20. This is so lovely Susi, I have a photo of my sister about the same age with ice cream all over her face.
