Chapter One

I've been a bad blogger this last week, but I was having fun anyway! With the long weekend and DH at home for the whole week, we were quite busy. Even went down south for 2 days without the kids. :)
Then I was up this morning at 5 am to take DH to the airport. Anybody who knows me will know that its not easy to get me up that early. Lol!! I wil rise, but I refuse to shine... :)
 I have managed to complete a layout with my brand new Handmade by Suzanne DT kit using one of the latest Kaisercraft ranges called 'Chapter One'. The colours of this range is beautiful and I thought it was perfect for this pic of my DS and his girlfriend on their way to her Year 12 Ball in January this year. It was such an incredibly hot day (around 44 degrees) but they still managed to look gorgeous! :)

And a little close up of some of the beautiful Maya Road small organza roses ribbon and the May Arts satin pleats trim. The flowers are Prima Sugar blooms and Kaisercraft paper blooms.  All products are available here.
That's all for today! I hope your week has started well. I'm hoping to get a bit more scrapping in. Just got to get the housework up to date.
Until next time.
