Hi everyone!   Just as you thought I've fallen off the face of the earth... here I am!  I finally had some time to be creative.  Phew!  I started to develope some serious withdrawal symptoms. Lol! I'm sure you all know what I mean. :)
We've had a fantastic week away and had a crazy couple of weeks driving around showing our visitors all the beautiful sites around Perth and further down south.  My aunt left on Thursday night and very slowly things are returning back to normal.  Schools are starting on Thursday and my DD will be going to her Year 12 Ball next week Friday, the 4th of May.  Busy, but exciting times ahead.
Okay, enough of all of my busy life.  I came here to share some scrappy stuff with you. :)

I've created this layout using my DT pack from Handmade by Suzanne.  As all of you know already, I'm totally in love with all MME products.  Here I've used the MME Miss Caroline 'Fiddlesticks' collection.  The pic is of my friend's little girl when she was about 3 months old. I love the colours of this range and thought it was perfect for this baby pic.
 A close up of some of the layered stickers in this range.  Love my Green Tara paper string too.
The banner is part of the layered sticker sheet too. :)  Love these tiny Prima flowers.
 A close up of the big wooden die cut.
Don't forget that you still have time to enter the sketch challenge at Handmade by Suzanne.  Check out my previous post for all the details.  You could be the winner of a $30 voucher (inclucing free postage).  All you have to do is enter!!
That's all for today. :) I'm hoping to find some time to catch up on all my favourite blogs soon.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week!
Until next time.
