April Sketch at Handmade by Suzanne

Happy Easter everyone! I hope by now you are nice and relaxed and that you are having a weekend filled with wonderful family time.  I just want to share the new sketch at Handmade by Suzanne with you.  I think it's a beauty but then, all Shell's sketches are beautiful. :)
And my take on it. The pic is of my friend's precious little boy.  He was born very prematurely but is growing up into such a lovely little boy and he has such a beautiful soul. Love him to bits!  I've used the gorgeous MME Miss Caroline 'Fiddlesticks' collection.  Lol! Have I ever told you how much I love MME? :):)
A close up of some of the layered and label stickers in this collection.  I've also used my Crafter's Workshop 'Mini Circle Grid' template to continue the circle theme throughout.
A crocheted flower made by me and another layered sticker. :)
And one more close up... just for good measure. :)
Now, why don't you give the sketch a go?  There's a $30 store voucher with free postage up for grabs!  The winner gets determined by random draw, so all you have to do is enter!  You can see the gallery with some more DT inspiration HERE.  If you want to read all about the latest products arriving and catch up on all the latest news, then have a look at the HBS Blog or your can sign up for the newsletter.

We have my parents and my aunt visiting at the moment.  DH is on 3 weeks leave from work, DD is on school holidays and my DS has a week of from Uni too.  We will be going away for a week starting Monday and I am looking SO forward to it.  Lot of fun, laughter, drinks, boardgames... you get the whole idea I'm sure.  Lol! So if I'm not here as often as I should be, you know where I am!
Have a wonderful Easter and  thank you so much for popping in and leaving such wonderful comments.  I appreciate it.
Until next time!
