Special Moment and a reminder!

What a beautiful day it was in Perth today!  I am loving the milder weather and a bit of soft rain added on the side. :)  Just want to share a layout I did based on the 1st April sketch over at Stuck Sketches.  I love playing along at Stuck whenever I get the chance.  Here is the sketch.
My take on it, using the Simple Stories 'Vintage Bliss' collection. Love the colours in this collection! The photo is of my my mum, myself and DD taken in 2008.  As we don't see my parents very often, this was indeed a very special moment. :)
All the flowers were cut from one of the sheets of patterned paper in this collection and the little birdhouse is from Dusty Attic.
I've also used my newly purchased Prima 'Damask' stencil and some Texture Magic to create a bit of interest on the background. 
I'll be back soon with more creations using this beautiful collection. 

Now for the REMINDER. :)  Would you like to win one of the following packs in my current GIVEAWAY?  Then go HERE to find out how?


 
That's all for today! Got to run, as we are meeting with friends for dinner.  Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
Until next time.
