My last CT layout for Scrap The Girls

Hi there.  I'm a little sad doing this post today. I have been on the Creative Team for Scrap The Girls for 18 months now and the time has come to say good bye. :(  I have enjoyed every minute of my time on this awesome team and Malinda is the best to work with.  I will miss all the lovely ladies I've been working with over this time.  Life is just getting a little too busy for me at the moment and it might be time for me to slow down for a while to sort my health problems out too. Nothing too serious... my energy levels are just a bit on the low side. :( 
Anyway, as I was saying... I'm here to post my CT example for the July challenge at Scrap The Girls.  This month you have to use the words from a song 'How sweet it is to be loved by you' as your title or in your journaling. Easy hey?  Just remember, GIRLS only. :)
I have used an older collection from Echo Park called 'Victoria Gardens'.  I love the gorgeous mixture of pinks in this range and decided that it will go well with a bit of black in the mix. :)  The roses were fussy cut from one of the papers and I just added a few Green Tara Mini roses to it.
 I also love a bit of sewing on my pages to finish things off.
 My title using Basic Grey Mini alpha stickers.
You have until the end of July to get your entry in!
That's all I have for today.  I am planning a huge blog catch up over the weekend, so if you haven't heard from me in a while, watch out! Lol! :)
Thank you for popping by and have a wonderful weekend!
Until next time.
