Scrap The Girls February challenge

Hi everyone! Schools have started across Australia this week.  Today I paid school fees for the very last time!  Such a weird feeling.  There are going to be many more 'last' moments for us this year as our baby (16 years old) has started Year 12 today. :(  I'm excited for her but also sad as it will be the end of an era for us. It feels like it was not that long ago that she had her first day at school.  Lol! Must mean that we're getting old. :)
Today is a new month in an almost still new year and that means a new challenge at Scrap The Girls.  The criteria for the February challenge is to use turqouise as the dominant colour, chipboard somewhere on your layout and the word 'love' in your title.  Easy, hey?!
Head over to the STG blog to see all the CT members' gorgeous inspiration.  Here is my example.
I've used MME 'Lime Twist' pattern papers,  Crystal Palace 'Star Burst' from Prima, assorted flowers from Prima and Kaisercraft paper blooms for my cluster. :)
The cloud chippies are from Dusty Attic and can be found here.
The fence is from Dusty Attic too and the chippie flower is from Scapware.  I've used the Martha Stewart 'Daisy Fan' Deep Edger punch for the strip at the bottom.
So, why don't you give this challenge a go?  I would love to see you enter.
That's all for today! Hope you are having a wonderful week.
Thanks for popping by!
Until next time.

It must feel sad with your daughter in her last year of school. I know I felt that way with primary school. It had been so much a part of our life for 9 years and I was sad to see it go.
Fab layout. Might give the challenge a go.

Hi Marelize, love this layout. You know that large floral border punch is my favourite! The chipboard pieces look divine.
I had a lump in my throat reading your post and your youngest is finishing schhol, and it is my youngest son's first day at high school today - I'm feeling as though at any moment I will cry.
