Walkin on Sunshine...

Phew! I almost didn't get this one in on time. :)
Over at Lil Red Rocket they are celebrating their first birtday with a Sketch Challenge. Here is my take on Shell's gorgeous sketch.
A close-up of my embellie cluster. That cute little turtle, the blue start button and the butterfly were from an embellishment swap at Top 50 a couple of months ago. Thank you girls!
I've used the new Bella Boulevard 'Sunny Happy Skies' collection. Love the bright, happy colours of this range. The pics are my DD posing with an umbrella at the park.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
Until next time.

Family is the essence of life

Hi there scrappy friends. I hope you had a great weekend. I've managed to get another CC challenge done for Top 50. We had to include 3 handmade embellishments and some stitching and something gingham/check. I used one of Kaisercraft's new releases called "Homemade". OMG, I think this range is just fabulous. The 2 bigger flowers on my layout are from Prima and so is the butterfly. All the products used are available from 'Handmade by Suzanne'.
A close up of my embellie cluster which includes my homemade cork button and the green doily which is from the Etsy shop called Sweet Vintage.
My two handmade roses together with one of the gorgeous Prima flowers.
A close up on the title which includes some chippies of this range (and my gingham ribbon).
By the way, if you haven't visited Handmade by Suzanne's new site yet, make sure you do. Its so much bigger, better and faster than before and there are always some bargains waiting to be snatched up.
That's all for today. Hope you are all enjoying a relaxing evening with your families before the mad rush of a new week begins.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

I've done this layout for one of Top 50's CC challenges. The pattern papers are from Bella Blvd's new range called 'Hello Beautiful'. The colours are so bright and happy and I thought it was perfect for this pic of myself and Kathy (one of my besties). I've used that MS punch again... lol! can you tell how much I love it? All the pp's and that beautiful "bud 'n bow" ribbon are from 'Handmade by Suzanne'.
I hope you are all having a fabulous week. Thanks for visiting and for your lovely comments. They are all very appreciated.

Another 'Seaside' layout and some exciting news

My second layout using this amazing range from October Afternoon. All the products used are from 'Handmade by Suzanne'. The pic is of my DS, DD and a friend in 2006. Oh, how time flies. :)
I don't think I'm quite done with these papers yet. Everything is just taking so much longer because of the school holidays. Lol! Too many distractions. I'm behind on a lot of things, but I'm so enjoying the kids being at home.
Now for the exciting news! Handmade by Suzanne's guest design team member for October is Michelle Fowler and boy, is she good! Make sure you check out all her fabulous creations in the HBS Gallery during this month. Michelle has also created the sketch for the October challenge at HBS. You can find all the information here.
Have a great weekend everybody and thanks for popping by.

Sweet Summer...

... Well, maybe not quite yet. It did feel like summer in Perth earlier this week tho.
When I saw the October Afternoon 'Seaside' papers for this first time I knew it would be perfect for these photos of my DH when he was 2 years old. LOL! That wat a looooong time ago. Awwww! He was such a cutie. ;)
This is my first DT layout for Handmade by Suzanne for October.
I've cut out the silhouette of him running on the beach and attached it with double-side foam tape to 'lift' it. This range is so much fun and the Shape stickers and Letterpress alphas are so gorgeeus.
Here's a card I made with the left overs.
And a close up . :)
Suzanne is recieving loads of new products every week. You can check them out here. There is a huge SALE category too, with heaps of 'not so old' ranges going for a song. So why not go a grab yourself a bargain?
Thats all for today scrappy friends. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend with beautiful Spring weather.
Thanks for visiting! :)
