July sketch at Handmade by Suzanne

Hello - Wahooooooo!!  I'm happy and excited to be able to share some fantastic news - I'm now part of the wonderful Design Team at Handmade by Suzanne.  I'm thrilled about this new opportunity and look forward to promoting products from HBS and also sharing my creativity and inspiration ☺
So I have my LO for the July sketch - designed by fellow DT member Nadia - she really does some fantastic designs and they are so much fun to work with.
Here is the sketch:
 And here is my take on the sketch:
 My sister-in-law has given to me some photo's of her family that I can use for my scrap booking - this is one of them - two of her sweet children ♥♥
I've used an assortment of papers for this one - Studio Calico, Basic Grey and Bo Bunny and a touch of Hambly.  And I've used that pretty punch from Martha Stewart - French Scroll ♥
Here are some close-up's:
 ... chipboard title - I've painted it white then sprinkled with Diamond Dust (really cool stuff and I can't wait to use it some more ...I've also used the MFT Die-namics Fancy Flourish die ...
 ... an array of flowers - some from Prima and the others are handmade rosettes using the Tim Holtz Mini Paper rosette die and roses using the  MFT Die-namics Large rolled rose - both of these flowers are so much fun to make☺ ...
... some little letters from MME ... I've also done some subtle misting and texture in the background ...

We would love to see your entries in the gallery at Handmade by Suzanne!!  There is a $40.00 voucher to win - WOW - that's a great prize ☺
I will be back through-out the month with LO's using my DT kit of Crate Paper goodies ☺☺
Thanks for coming by and all your lovely comments.
