November sketch at Handmade by Suzanne

Hi there scrappy friends! I'm here to do my Monday post. :) Remember that sketch I've shown you in my last post? I'm going to show you again and this time I'll add my take on it. :)  Here's the gorgeous sketch designed by Shell.  You will find all the details in Handmade by Suzanne's November newsletter.
And here is my take on it.  I've combined the first MME 'Lost and Found' collection with the latest MME 'Lost and Found Two' collection called 'Breeze'.  I think it worked pretty well together. :) The pics are of my DS soon after he got his first pair of glasses and how it's making my realise how time flies.
The title is from the second range too. The  birdies and flowers are PORTACraft stickers from my stash.
 I like adding twine and hessian to my boy layouts.
 I've used the Kaisercraft 'Script' texture stamp on the calico behind my pics. Quite like the idea.
I had great fun with the sketch and I hope you will give it a go too.  There is a $30 store voucher up for grabs and the winner gets determined by random draw. So, anybody can win!
That's all for today. Thank you so much for visiting. Have a wonderful week!
Until next time!
