Magic!

Don't know about you, but I am over the moon that it's long weekend! I am so looking forward to sleeping in and taking things easy for a couple of days. :)
Just want to share my latest layout with you. It's for a 'Bird Is The Word' challenge and you had to use the word 'Magic' this time.  I've used a photo of myself with DS and DD. These two put the magic in my every day. :)
 Oh my goodness, I just love these MME papers from the Stella and Rose 'Mabel' collection. How gorgeous is that woodgrain?!!
I enjoyed making these flowers too. So easy, and I love the effect. :)
A close up of my title. Just love those corrugated alphas from Scrapware. :)
All of the products used are available from 'Handmade by Suzanne'.
That's all for today. Have a fantastic Easter and enjoy your long weekend whatever you do!
Until next time.
