My heart is full

Hi there everyone. Happy Friday to you all!  I can't believe it's been a week since my last post! Phew! Where has the time gone?  I have also totally forgotten that I haven't shared my example for the July Sketch challenge at The Scrapbook Store yet, so here I am. It's another gorgeous sketch from Page Maps.
Here is my take on it, using the gorgeous Pink Paislee 'Cottage Farms' collection.  I love the soft colours in this collection.  The photo is of my two kids and I and was taken in September 2010. They really make my life complete. :)
A close up of the gorgeous burlap flower from this collection. Added a few Green Tara mini roses and leaves and a Petaloo flower.  The lace is from Green Tara too.
Another cluster using a die cut flower from the ephemera pack from this collection.   The canvas butterfly is from the Pink Paislee 'Hope Chest' collection.  Isn't it gorgeous?
And another little cluster where I just layered more of the ephemera, added a little rose and a white TSS chipboard phrase.
I hope you can play along with this challenge.  There's an awesome $40 store voucher up for grabs as well as free postage!  You have until the end of the month to get your entries in!
That's all for today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend whatever you do!
Thanks for visiting.
Until next time.

That is just the most wonderful photo! Love how you have used pinks in this and the previous layout. The soft tones are perfect for the sentiments. Beautiful work x
