What's up?

Happy Monday everybody!! Hope you had a good weekend. I had a lovely but busy weekend and with Fathers Day and all didn't have too much time for scrapping. I have managed to finish off this layout I've started last week though. At first I struggled a bit with the fact that I was having so much pink on a layout with a boy in it... Lol, but I thought I could get away with it since I have a girl in the photo as well. I love this photo of my 2 teenagers. Not often you get them together in one photo these days. :)
I've used the Crate Paper ' Restoration' Collection for this and I've made my own cork embellies by sticking cork onto chipboard and cutting the shapes out on my Cuttlebug. All the products used are available at "Handmade by Suzanne".
A close-up of my embellie cluster. Love that Green Tara paper string.
That's all for now. I'm hoping to get a bit more scrapping done this week. Have a wonderful week!
Until next time.

Wow what a striking layout Marelize, it is gorgeous. Your boy is so handsome and i bet all of the girls are after him!!!. Your daughter is beautiful too and this photo really captures the pair and can see why it is your favourite. The pp's are lovely and those flowers are so pretty, especially with the use of the cork. Big hugs to you honey, love Clare xxx

I love this Marelize! Love the cork embellies, they are awesome. And I love the papers you used. I just bought them the other day too!

beautiful! I have just ordered some Restoration and am wondering if it's going to be too pink to use it on a page about Jamie. Maybe I'll have to do something about me instead! I think that it words really well on your layout - it's not overly girly at all!
