March sketch at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone!  It's a very busy time for us, but we are having a wonderful time with our visitors. Unfortunately it gives me very little time for blogging and scrapping.  I've been writing this blog post for the last 3 days now. Lol!  This is just a quick post to tell you about the new sketch at The Scrapbook Store.  Here is the gorgeous sketch for March.
My take on it using an old Glitz Design collection and loads of Prima flowers. The photo is of my DD during an outing in the country one weekend.
The little birdie is a chipboard piece from Dusty Attic that I've painted white and I've cut the bird cage using a Poppy Stamps 'Vintage Bird Cage' die

I've used my Crafters Workshop 'Mini Bricks' template and Texture Magic on my background. 
A variety of Prima flowers. :)
I hope you get a chance to play along. There is a $40 store voucher (with free postage) up for grabs and the winner gets determined by random draw, which means anybody can win!  All you have to do, is to upload your take on the sketch in the relevant folder in the Gallery before the end of March. :) It's that easy!
Before I go, I want to apologize to all my blog friends for my absence.  We are taking our visitors on a short holiday south of Perth next week and then we will have another week of exploring and sight seeing the week after.  I am hoping that things will return to normal after the 22nd.  I want to thank you all for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support. 
Until next time!

I would love to watch you scrap...to see how you get your patterned paper to make such lovely curls...I love the brickwork and the placement of your embellishments.

Aha I had wondered what had become of you! No problem, you just relax and enjoy your visitors and your time away & don't give your blog a thought because we will stick around and wait for you. We all need a break sometimes. A beautiful page Marelize. Really pretty!
