Sense of Wonder

I have finally scrapped something! Yay! My DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne was patiently waiting for my while life tried to run away with me... Lol! What a busy couple of weeks we had. It all came to a head last weekend with DD's Year 11 Ball on Friday night and DS's 18th birthday party on Saturday night. Fun was had by all, but boy, am i glad to it all over. :)
I'm entering this layout for the Lollipop Ladies Challenge #17. The colours are just perfect and the extra criteria was to use gloss somewhere on your layout... what better to use than the Bo Bunny jewels that came with this range. I've used Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle' pattern papers, stickers and jewels.
The pic is my friend's little girl who I just adore. All the products for this layout are from Handmade by Suzanne.  
I've used Tim Holtz Distress stain 'Weathered Wood' on my bird cage and then covered it in Distress Crackle paint.
For my title, I've stuck old alpha stickers lightly on my page and rubbed distress stain over it. Once dried, I carefully pulled the stickers off.
I've used the Websters Trendsetters trim in 'Blue Tutu'' to make my flower and added a Bo Bunny jewel in the centre.
My whole page were 'edged' with Distress Stain too. I just love this product. It's so versatile!!
That's all for today. I hope to be back with more shares soon. Hope you are having a wonderful week!
Thanks for stopping by. :)

Wow what a busy girl you have been Marelize!!! hope you are able to start relaxing a little now hun. Can't wait to see pics of DD's year 11 ball and DS 18th Birthday. Hope he loved his card by the way!!!. You will sure have plenty to scrap anyway!!!. What a little cheeky monkey girl you have on this wonderful layout. Look at those eyes. What a beautiful soft and serene looking layout you have created Marelize. The birdcage and butterfly's add such a tranquil feel to your LO without overwhelming it as the papers are so pretty in themselves. You are such a talented lady. Take care gorgeous lady and make sure you take time to relax!!! hugs Clare xxx P.S Thankyou for all of your lovely comments on my blog that you leave x
