More Echo Park 'Yours Truly'

It's been VERY hot and humid in Perth during the last few days and today is just a little bit better... I think 31 C max.  Only until tomorrow when it will start again! :(  They predict  40 C for Australia day this coming Thursday! Guess how I will be spending my Aus Day?  Scrapping under the airconditioner sounds like a plan!
Yeterday I spent a wonderful day with some gorgeous scrappy friends and I managed to complete another layout using my Handmade by Suzanne DT kit.  I tried a different (not so formal) style for this one and quite like the way it turned out. :)
I've used Echo Park 'Yours Truly' pattern papers and punched out some hearts. I then filed the edges a bit to go with the whole distressed look. :)
I've used mainly Kaisercraft paper blooms for the cluster and my favourite Martha Stewart 'frond' punch for the leaves. Used an inkpad with the Crafters Workshop 'Cherry Blossoms' template on the white background.
That's all I can share today. :)
Thanks for popping by! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you had a bit of time to be creative too.
Until next time.

Certainly has been warm, even this way, but is feeling cooler tonight which is just great. Enjoy this new week. ☺

A beautiful page!! The photo is lovely and the row of heart sets it off beautifully!
Hope that the expected temp isn't reached, a little too warm, but it would be a perfect excuse to scrap!! I have been wearing a jumper most mornings and evenings here, would love it to be a little warmer!
