MME is 'The Sweetest Thing'

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you had a great week and have an even better weekend planned.  I had a bit of time to play yesterday and created my first layout using my September DT kit from The Scrapbook Store.  Now, everybody probably know by now how much I love MME products.  This month I got to use the new 'The Sweetest Thing - Lavender' collection and it is GORGEOUS!!  I've scrapped a photo that hubby took of DD and I while on holidays earlier this year.   The circle background pattern was created using my Silhouette machine.  I really have to try and use it more often.
I loved using these brand new TSS Mulberry paper roses now in store.  They come in all sorts of yummy colours and sizes and are so beautiful!  I've added a few Green Tara mini roses and leaves to complete my cluster.  I added a bit of gesso to the leaves to soften the colour a bit.
The pearls strips are from Kaisercraft.  I love using these on my layouts!  I'm a bit of a twine girl too and thought it would look great with the cardboard and raw chipboard. :)
All the chipboard used on this layout are from Scrap FX.  This one is called 'Berries stem'.
That's all for today.  I'm hoping to find more time soon to create another layout with my kit.  MME makes me feel so excited!! :)
Thank you so much for visiting and have a great weekend!
Until next time.
