Scrap The Girls' April Challenge is up

Hi everyone! Happy Monday to you all! A nice short week for all of us and then it's Easter! :)
Make sure you check out the April challenge at Scrap The Girls this month.  It's super easy!  All you have to do, is create a layout based on the following sketch and remember: GIRLS ONLY. :)

Here is my take on it.  I've used the gorgeous Bo Bunny 'Country Garden' papers and added a little extra using my Crafters Workshop  'Tile Texture' and 'Mini Branches Reversed' templates and some Glimmer Mist. I've made my own tags using Kraft cardstock and a couple of circle/hole punches. :)
A close up of my little cluster.  I've used a Basic Grey bloomer (which I altered a little), a Prima flower and a Lovelybug Bits n Bobs button.
The pics are of my DD and one of her best friends while on our Anzac Day outing in 2010.  Can't believe that's almost 2 years ago.  Feels like yesterday.
I would love to see some of my blog friends have a go at this challenge.  There are always great prizes up for grabs. You can see the rest of the CT's gorgeous layouts here. :)
The mountain of washing is calling me.  Better get going!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week!
Until next time.
