Scrap Africa's January Sketch Challenge

Hi everybody and a Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2014 will be a great year for you and your families! I have been very quiet in the scrapping department but have been spending the most wonderful time with my little family and dear friends these last 2 weeks.  I am also in the process of tidying my scraproom and can feel a BIG giveaway coming on soon. :)
But today I'm here to share the January sketch challenge at Scrap Africa with you.  Here is the gorgeous sketch.
For my take on the sketch I've used the new Marion Smith 'Garment District' collection.  I was fortunate enough to receive these stunning papers in my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store and I simply love them! The photo is one we took during a recent holiday of the Busselton Jetty. :)
The gorgeous butterflies and words are from Collections Elements and I've used the Crafters Workshop 'Mini Chickenwire Reversed' template and Kaisercraft 'Script' stamp on the background.
The brown flowers are from Manor House Creations and the pink rose and crystal leafy flourishes are from Prima.
Another little close up...
 ... and another. :)
To see all the gorgeous examples from the rest of the Scrap Africa DT, have a look here.  I would love for you to play along.  You have until the 14th of January to get your entries in.
That's all for today.  I'm hoping to be more organised this year and to have more regular blog updates, but for now I am just going to enjoy the last few days of the holidays with my family.  Hubby and I are both starting work again on Monday.
Thank you for visiting.
Until next time!

REALLY lovely - love the 'clean' lines & that bit of corrugated card looks just spot on!!! I reckon this collection would be VERY versatile, too:):):)
