More 'Beautiful Moments'

I've had this layout sitting on my desk for quite a few days now, but only got around to finishing it this morning.  School holidays are in full swing here and it's also the last week of uni holidays before Semester 2 starts.  It seems like I'm somehow involved in these holidays, as I have less time to get creative. Lol!
I've created this layout with my July DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne and I was determined to do a 'boy' layout with the gorgeous Carta Bella 'Beautiful Moments' collection.  I am entering it into the White With One July challenge, as the criteria is "White + Polka Dots + Tape".  This is how it turned out.
The pic is of DS while we were on holiday in April this year.    I have used two Crafters Workshop templates called 'Mini Chickenwire Reversed' and 'Tile Texture'.  The branch that's peeping out under my flowers were cut using the Momory Box 'Woodland Branch' Die.
...and I've used some 'Black Chevron' washi tape.
I've already go some ideas for a next layout using these beautiful papers.  Thankfully there's a weekend in sight! 
Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Until next time.

Oh Marelize this is stunning!! You have used this collection beautifully!! I LOVE the design of this LO with the frame and negative space. Love the chicken wire effect. I finally found a template for it. Did you ink to get your image? Not sure how I should use mine. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
