Illustration Friday Expired - Meet zombie mummy


Zombie mummy is a character created by my boys, mostly by my 3 year old. It comes from a night when I was trying so hard to get some 'me' time and was putting on a face mask which happened to be green and the boys got a bit of a shock. Riley LOVES zombie mummy, it's so funny he now asks when she's coming and whenever I put the face mask on he follows me round the house telling me all about what he's been up to since 'she' last saw him. He's a right little character!

So for Illustration Friday this week I chose to bring to life zombie mummy. She might be well and truly expired but the boys love to give her a cuddle!!!
