Everlasting love

Hi there everyone! Hope you are having a lovely weekend. I'm just popping in to share another layout I created with my DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne
I have based my layout on Sketch #7 over at Scrap Africa.  It's a great challenge site that I've recently discovered through a couple of my scrappy friends.  Here is the sketch.
I am totally in love with the Carta Bella 'Beautiful Moments' collection. The photo is of my parents when they were visiting earlier this year. They were married for 53 years in January and are still going strong. Such an inspiration. :)
I've recently purchased the MFT Die-namics 'Royal Rose' die and tried it out on here. (Love it!!) Also added a Green Tara Mini rose,  leaves using my Martha Stewart 'Rose Leaf' punch and Green Tara 'Natural Jute' ribbon.
 Also gave my Lifestyle Crafts Hexagon Dies a bit of a work out. :)
 and have used my Crafters Workshop 'Mini Art Is' template again.
Don't forget that you still have until the end of the month to enter the sketch challenge at Handmade by Suzanne. There is a $40 store voucher plus free postage up for grabs.  All you have to do is enter. You can find all the information here.
That's all for now.  Thank you so much for visiting.
Until next time.
