Spectrum Noir makers and my Grandbaby

I have finally organized and have found the perfect way to store my Spectrum Noir markers.
Don't get excited, I have not given up on my Copic markers.

I love my Copic markers and think they are the best alcohol markers I have used so far.
But to lug this tote bag full of markers back and forth to camp gets a bit heavy.
Plus, most weekends I may not even colour....but I still need my markers with me, just in case ;)

So I decided to take the plunge and purchase the Spectrum Noir markers.
I have been on the fence about this for the last year or so...but when I saw them for a really good price and then saw them for an even better price online (yup, me shopping online) I just felt the need to get them, teehee.
They are going to stay at the cottage for the season so no back and forth for these babies every weekend :)

I used this Card Keeper container from Iris.
I used my hot glue gun to adhered the dividers in place.
So far I'm thinking these will be all of the markers I will be getting.....I'm thinking ;)

Onto My Day:
Ashley invited me and her Mother in Law to her ultra sound appointment.
So exciting!!
I can't say I didn't get emotional and I may have shed a tear or two.
Here is the utra sound photo...I used to think these were kind of freaky...until I saw my grandson.
I am so blown away with

I hope you all have a very creative day :)
