Such a short month

Generally when you get to the 20th of the month, you think 'oh well, I still have 10 or 11 days left' but in this case it went something like 'OMG! How am I going to fit everything into the next week?!!!' There is so much happening in the first few months of the year with schools starting in February and for my kids Uni starts next Monday.. Hopefully everything will start to fall into some kind of routine and I will get more done! :)
I'm here to share another layout with you.  I used my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store and based my layout on the February sketch on the MME blog. Here's the sketch.
I've turned the sketch on it's side to suit my photos.  The pics are of my DD (taken about 3 years ago) before her Atheletics Carnival. I don't think she was in the mood for photos. Lol!  I've used the gorgeous MME Notable 'Unforgettable' collection.
Added some washi tape and created a thick heart by sticking several punched heart shapes together.
Cut my title using my Silhouette machine. :)
Some hexagons and flowers that I fussy cut from the pattern papers.  Just added enamel dots for dimension.
I've got a huge week coming up, but I'll be back on the 1st with examples for some of the March challenges.  Also, watch this space during March as I am going to have a HUGE give away here on my blog.  Just have to get myself organised and take some photos of what you can win. :):)
Hope you had a great weekend and wishing you a wonderful new week.  Thank you for visiting!
Until next time.

Cute layout Marelize! Oh I am feeling just the same about February. It's been a crazy month with schools and unis getting started & into the swing & so much DT work to squash into a shorter time - still not finished!!
