Echo Park 'Yours Truly'

Hi there scrappy friends! I hope you are all having a great week. My DH went back to work yesterday and I am having a major house clean at the moment. So fun... NOT!  Lol!  I suppose that's what you get when you relax for 2 weeks and don't do much. :)
Just want to share a layout I did using my gorgeous DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne.  The papers and stickers are all from the Echo Park 'Yours Truly' range. I love the colours in this range and I thought it would go well with these pics of DH and I taken 4 years ago.
A close up of the Zva Creative 'Triumph flourish'. You should check out these beauties. They come in such a variety of designs and colours and the quality is outstanding!  And I've used my favourite Martha Stewart 'Swirling lace' punch again. :)
The little flowers on the edge of my circle photo are Mini Blooms from Kaisercraft and so is the wooden 'Eiffel tower'. The flowers in the corner are a mixture of Kaisercraft Mini Blooms and Green Tara 'Mini Roses'. 
Okay, that's all for today. I have to go and do some more cleaning now... :(
Thank you so much for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
Until next time.

Hello my lovely friend. So sorry that I have not been around in a while but I guess you have seen my blog updates. Thankyou for the lovely comment you left and I am so happy to be back. I have had a little catch up with your news and your gorgeous layouts. I have serious craft envy as your pages are so beautiful. I can never pick a favourite as they are all wonderful. I promise to be back more regular now as one of my resolutions is to blog more often and keep in touch with my lovely friends. Big big hugs Clare xxx
