Special Times

Hi everyone! It's turning into summer here in Perth.  Yesterday we had a 30 degree day!  Not sure I'm quite ready for the really hot weather though.  It does mean that I stay indoors more to avoid the heat, which generally makes for more scrappy time. :) 
So, I've decided to play along with Sketch #10 at Scrap Africa this month.
Here is my take on the sketch using my October DT kit from The Scrapbook Store.  I loved the original 'For the Record' collection from Echo Park, so when I saw them bringing out a 'For The Record 2' range, I was very excited. Everything used on this layout is from the 'Documented' collection with the exception of the lace trims from Kaisercraft, the paper flowers, ribbon and the paper doilies. It's not my usual colour palette, but I think I like it. :) The pic is of my two kids with my parents when they were visiting earlier this year. I have some hidden journalling on the tag sticking out just above the photo.
A layered chipboard piece from this collection and some gorgeous TSS Mulberry paper roses.
 A little close up of the title using alphas from the sticker sheet.
I've used the Martha Stewart Monarch medium butterfly punch and some pearls to create the butterflies. :)
That's all I have to share today.  Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Until next time.
