Websters 'Plum Seed'

O dear, I'm forming a terrible habit of doing one post a week at the moment.  I always have greater intentions, but it doesn't ever seem to work out. 
This month I am creating with the beautiful Websters 'Plum Seed' collection for The Scrapbook Store.  I adore the colours in this range!  First up is a layout of my gorgeous girl and I.  The photo was taken amongst the spring flowers in Kings Park (here in Perth) in 2010.  I have used an assortment of the Mini folders and cards to frame my photo.
A mixture of Prima, Petaloo and Green Tara flowers. The leaves were punches using the Martha Stewart 'Rose leaf' punch. 
 Another cluster of flowers.  The mini word stickers are from an older MME range.
 I've cut my title using my Silhouette Cameo. :)
I also decided to play along with Stuck Sketches this month.  I'm a huge fan of Sara's sketches and like to play along whenever I get a chance.  Here is the sketch for the 15th of July.
And here is my take on it using the gorgeous Websters 'Plum Seed' collection again.  For some or other reason I couldn't get the colours to photograph correctly.  Might have to give it another go.  The photo is of DS, DD and I at our best! Lol! If you can't beat them, join them! :)
I have used the Crafters Workshop 'Microbial' stencil and some Texture Magic to create the circle.

Decided to make rosettes for this one and used a Greatest View flair badge on one of them.  Did you know that you can buy The Greatest View flair badges from The Scrapbook Store now?
 Another close up of some of the layers.

I also have something very exciting to share. The layout on the front cover of the latest Scrapbooking Memories (Vol 15 No 12) is mine!  I am thrilled to bits about it! The little girl in the photo belongs to my very good friend Barbara and Jessica (now almost 4) is so excited to see her sweet little face on the cover of the magazine.

 Okay, I'm off to bed!  Will  have to be a bit more blog active tomorrow.  Thank you for popping by! Have a wonderful week!
Until next time.
