Over the moon...

...to have received the Basic Grey 'Clippings' collection from Handmade by Suzanne this month.  I love this collection.  It's so versatile.  Here is my first layout.  I have based my page on the sketch for Vicki's Sketch challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50.  The pic is of a friend's little boy.  He is such a cutie.  :)
The flowers are a mixture of Manor House Creations and Prima and the leaves were punched out using my Martha Stewart 'frond' punch.  The title is from Scrap FX.
 The quote is a Kaisercraft rub on.
I've coloured a Martha Stewart doily using Glimmer Mist and the chipboard sticker is from the BG collection.
That's all for today.  I'm off to get dinner ready for the family.  Hope you are having a good week.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for the lovely comments.  I love reading them.
Until next time

Wow Marelize, this is beautiful. The page divided by the flowers looks stunning, and the amount of white space you left looks good with just the scallop die cut and tag with the event date on looks fabulous :)
