Imagine...

Hi there scrappy friends! Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! We are having a relatively quiet one. DH and I are just about to go out for dinner to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. Our actual anniversary was on Thursday but DH had a meeting until 7.30, so we decided to celebrate on the weekend. :)
 Just got this layout to share quickly. I used my Handmade by Suzanne Dt kit. I first thought that I would find these papers hard to work with, but the more I get into it, the more I love it!  This layout is for a challenge over at  'Bird is the Word'. The challenge was to use the word 'Imagine' on your layout!!  I am planning on doing the next challenge too, using the word 'Magic'.
I've used Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle' pattern papers, stickers and jewels. The bird cage is from Kaisercraft and the chipboard branches, bird, butterfly and flowers are 'Collections' (I think). Most the flowers are Prima and the the blue trim is from Websters. All the product used are available from Handmade by Suzanne.
The pic is of my DD and was originally taken against a brick wall. I decided to cut away the wall and to create my own scene to make it a bit more interesting. :)
I've used my Martha Stewart Vine Trim deep edger punch and the Frond punch to greate all the blue and pinkish leaves.
My cluster of mainly Prima flowers and that gorgeous Webster's trim.
Another close up of some chippy flowers and Kaisercraft pearl flourish.
That's all for today! Got to run! Hope to be back soon to share some more scrappy goodness! Have a fantastic weekend!
