A beautiful view

I've had a little time to scrap last night and it felt so good! I don't seem to get too much time lately to be creative. :( 
My DT pack from Handmade by Suzanne is full of Crate goodness this month. I've created this layout using the Crate Paper 'Pretty Party' collection. I can't wait to create more with this gorgeous range.  The pic is of my DH with the family.  We took them all over Perth this particular day to show them all the beautiful sites.  Here we were at Heathcote where you can see a stunning view of Perth City across the Swan River.
A little close up of the new DIY Thickers that's in store now.  They come in various designs and are sticky on both sides so you can customize them to suit your layout.  I've used POP! Microbeads on mine.
 The tags on my layout are from the back of one of the pattern papers.
 I also had a play with my MT Masking tape.:)
That's all I have to share this time.  I'm hoping to be more blog active as from next week.  My parents are leaving on Monday to go back home. :(  I will miss them so much and the house will be way too quiet after having people around every day for 2 months.
I have something to look forward to though.  I'm off to the Handmade by Suzanne Retreat over the weekend!  Looking so forward to seeing some of the lovely ladies again that I met last time. A whole weekend of creating and laughing!  Bring it on! :)
Well, that's all for today.  I hope to be back soon with more layouts to share. If not before, it will most definitely be after next weekend.
Thank you so much for visiting! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
Until next time.
