A Grand Chat and a card

Hi there everyone! It's quite late here in Perth, but I thought to quickly squeeze a blog post in as my weekend is going to be pretty full on!  My 'little' girl is turning 18 on Saturday and we are having a party! So lots of organising and things to do.  I am hoping that things will start returning back to 'normal' (whatever that means!) next week.  June was such a hectic month for us!
Lol!  I'm certainly not here to complain, but rather to share more layouts!
For both the layout and card, I have used my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store.  I started the layout out with a piece of Kraft cardstock and used the Crafters Workshop 'Confetti' stencil and Atelier 'Heavy White Gesso' to create the background. The papers are all from the Kaisercraft 'Porcelain Rose' collection.  I love this photo of my DS and my MIL (his granny).  They were sitting on this bench in the park (while we were on an outing) just chatting away. So sweet. :)
 Finished it off with a bit of twine and a Green Tara Mini rose.
I've used the rubons from the Porcelain Rose collection in several places on my page. :)  The red hearts were just dry-brushed on using red paint and the same stencil.
Love me bits of Washi tape. :)
And a card using some of my left-over papers.  My DD asked me to make a card for her boyfriend's mum's birthday this weekend. This is just using papers and stickers from the Porcelain Rose collection.  Teamed them up with some Green Tara Mini roses and leaves punched with my Martha Stewart 'Rose leaf' punch.  I've purchased the white oval frame from the Manor House stand while at the Expo in Brisbane earlier this month. The 'Happy Birthday' chipboard is from the TSS chipboard collection.  I heat embossed it using the Stampendous 'Frantage Embossing powder kit'. Love the shabby colours.
That's all I have for today.  I think I'll be off to bed now, as there are lots of work awaiting me in the morning. :)  Thank you so much for popping in and for all your lovely comments.  I appreciate it so.
Have a beautiful weekend!  See you next week!
Until next time.
