Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble

Cutting it a bit fine and doing an almost midnight post here. :)  Have to get my Bird Is The Word entry in though before the deadline, which is in about.... 7 and a half hours and since I am not an early bird, I thought its safer to do it now. :)
The pics are of my DD on her way to her Year 11 Ball earlier this year.  We had to use the word 'admire' this time and I thought that this quote was perfect for the pics.
I've used Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble collection for this.  The colours in this range are so gorgeous together.  All the products used in this layout are availble from Handmade by Suzanne.
 A little close up of my cluster.  The flowers are Green Tara Calla Lillies that I tied into a bunch with some twill.  And I just love the butterflies from Collections.
The next layout is another one I did with my DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne using the same fabulous Kaisercraft Velvet Ensemble range.  The pic is my friend's little boy. Isn't he the sweetest?  I've also used some Kaisercraft 'Moments' rub ons (one the photo), Collections 'Creative Butterflies', a Crafter's Workshop 'Time Travel' template and some gorgeous Scrapware Correboard Alphas.  Handmade by Suzanne is getting so many exciting products in all the time.  You can check it all out here.
A little close up to show the title. I added some twine for a more 'boyish' look.
 And some more gorgeous butterflies. :)
That's all for today. I better go get some sleep. Thank you so much to everybody who wished me well with my back ache.  All your well wishes must have worked, as I feel so much better!  I'm going to attempt painting DD's room this week, so don't know how much scrapping will get done.  There might be a card or two in line though ...
Wish you all a fantastic week!! Thanks for visiting!
Until next time.

I love the corryboard alphas on the Sweet Boy layout. I think I will have to get some of those. The whole layout is great. Simple and striking with a great use of colour. Thanks for commenting on my blog.
Cheers
