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.

Wow Marlelize, what a stunning layout, and you know the papers when you cannot see them in the small online pics are so much better here, this is stunning, is that a corner punch with the circles or does the die cut come like that, I just love this, stunning dear friend, and you have sold me this line. by the way, got my order from HByS and was extremely happy, thanks for putting me onto this great site. Love Melxx
