The final touch

I have been trying to do this post since around 2 pm this afternoon, but everytime I'm sitting down to do it, somebody needs me or something happens and I have to get up again.  Let's hope this time I manage to complete it. :) It was a beautiful day in Perth today. A bit cool, but sunny. :)  Hope you had a good day too, wherever you are. :)
Just want to share a layout I created using my July DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne.  I received the beautiful new Carta Bella 'Beautiful Moments' collection this month. If you haven't seen this new paper range yet, make sure you check it out. It's gorgeous!  The photo is of my DD receiving here corsage from her date just before her Year 12 Ball a few months ago. 
A close up of the pretty wooden Kaisercraft frame and the Zva Creative flourish.
A couple of Kaisercraft Mini Paper blooms and the leaves were made using my Martha Stewart 'rose leaf' punch.  I've used the Crafters Workshop Mini 'Art Is' template and an inkpad to create the 'script' under my title.
I have entered this layout into 'Vicki's Initial Challenge' at Scrapbooking Top 50's July CC.  You can see all the challenges here.  Why not play along?  You've got until next Sunday, 15 July, to get your entries in. :)
That's all for today. Will be back later in the week to show you my next layout using this gorgeous range.  Thank you for visiting and for you lovely comments. I love reading them.  Have a great week!
Until next time.
