Days gone by

Hi everybody! Just a quick post to share some scrappy stuff. Truth is, this layout has been lying on my table for about 10 days now, waiting for the finishing touches... *blush*... I've used Echo Park 'For the Record' pattern papers and stickers, Dusty Attic 'Chicken Wire' and 'Bird bath' chipboard, Kaisercraft pearl flourish, Gllimmer Mist and some brand new Prima flowers. You can find all these products here. The pic is of my dad's cousin's two children back in 1963. Love all the old photos at the moment A close up of my little cluster. Just look at those gorgeous new Prima flowers. :) And I've made this card for my son's 18th birthday last Saturday. It was a very quick card and bit more grungy than my normal style, but he loved it! Used Cosmo Cricket 'Circa 1934', some twine and a bottle cap. All available form Handmade by Suzanne.

That's all for today! Thanks for visiting. I hope you are having a great week. Until next time. :)

I love what you've done with this LO Marelize - I love the misting, the chipboard and the flowers (they are very bulky aren't they - LOL. You are also clever at male cards - I 'm hopeless at them. Oh and your sketch LO at HBS is stunning too. You do black really well!
