Tranquillity

Well, I thought I couldn't let the Monday go past without doing a post.  Lol! I haven't actually scrapped much at all during the last week (to my frustration) but I still had this layout lying on my desk since last week. :)
I did this one for the  Kraft It Up challenge this month. The challenge is to use no pattern paper and obviously a kraft background. I've decided to go with this photo that my DH snapped of me in December. I was sitting on this tiny little chair in the garden on my brother's farm. I grew up on that farm and I just love it there.  Living so close to nature really agrees with me.  :)
I've used a combonation of 2 different Crafter's Workshop templates to create the branches, birdies and birdcage at the top of the page. The border sticker at the bottom is from Pink Paislee and the birdbath is Dusty Attic. All the products are available from Handmade by Suzanne.  The tree and the grass were cut on my Silhouette machine. :)
That's all for today. I'm hoping to get some more layouts completed soon. If I can just get rid of this tired feeling. *yawn*
Have a wonderful week everyone!  Thanks for dropping by and for all the love you leave behind. I really enjoy reading your lovely comments.
Until next time!

Oh wow Marelize, that crafters workshop template is fantastic and what a stunning photo of you. You are so beautiful, you are a stunning scrapper. I had Nate this last week fall and crack his tooth, so much stress, but I guess you have been through this type of stress in the younger years. Now he has to have an operation to get the roots out. Oh this I know is just something I have to go through as a mum, but it breaks my heart. Melx
