Sweet smile

Just sharing a last minute entry for February's second sketch at Stuck?! Sketches. The photo is of my DD taken about 2 years ago. I've used Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday range - very gorgeous and girly papers!
A close up of the title:
and that gorgeous Green Tara flower:
Did a lot of running around today, taking the kids here and there and everywhere in Perth's stinking heat and I'm feeling positively exhausted! Thank god it's weekend and hopefully I'll be able to catch my breath by tomorrow! Hope all you lovely ladies out there are having a whale of a time and are scrapping up a storm! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

The beautiful Corrina from 'My Scrap Burrow' has honored me with this award and I'm so happy to receive it! Thanks Corrina!

The Rules...

* Put the logo on your blog or within your post
* Pass the award onto 6 bloggers who are followers of your blog

So, I pass it on to ....
My gorgeous blog friend Sue at Look Into My Life
The lovely Tamara at Tamara's World

That's it for today! Hope to be sharing some layouts soon! Just trying to survive the heat at the moment! It's 42 degrees in Perth today! Have a gorgeous day! :)

Note added Friday (25 February) - When I received the above award, I never stopped to think about it and thought it would just be a bit of fun and if everybody passes it on to 6 more bloggers it would soon have consumed the whole of Scrapbooking Blog Land! Well, now that I had time to think about it, I'm thinking that it wasn't fair to all my other followers not to get a mention, as I do value and apprecialte each and every one of you. Therefore, I want to apologise to all of you. It certainly was not my intention to exclude or offend any of you. I hope you can forgive me!

New DT layouts to share!

I had great fun playing with one of Kaisercraft's new collections called La-Di-Da. I love the bright girlie colours of this range! Here are two layouts and a card I've created for Handmade by Suzanne. The rub-ons, ribbons and chippies in this range are to die for! I've also included some very devine Prima flowers and flower centres. All product used are available HERE.

This is a layout with DS doing a cheeky pose! I've used the Bella Boulevard Super Stud collection here.
Thanks for visiting my little blog! Hope to see you back here soon! Have a great week!

A Note Book and a Discount!

Just sharing a note book I've decorated for Sarah (my DD's friend) for her 15th birhtday. She loved it and all her friends apparently went "OMG! That looks awesome!" DD says she was very proud to have such a clever mother! LOL Nothing like a bunch of teenage girls to boost your ego!
Just a quick note to let you know that "Handmade by Suzanne" is having 20% off all Basic Grey products for this week (8 to 14 February)! So go and grab yourself a bargain!
Have a great week everybody and I hope to see you back here soon!

So Very Cute!

I finally had time to scrap!! My kids started school on Monday and everything was a bit chaotic for a while but I think (hope) that things will return to normal now.
I've done this layout for the February Sketch Challenge at Scrapbooking From Scratch. The little girl is my friend's and I just love to do layouts of her (Lol, I'm sure you've noticed!).
I hope to get a bit more scrapping done soon. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
