LOC Nature's Bath

I have finally managed to play along with the Play Date Cafe Challenge - I have seen so many gorgeous creations all over Blogville and had their challenge marked off as one to play along with - and today I am - wahoo!!

This layout is featuring one of my DH's photo's - I love this photo that was taken while we were away down the South Coast over a year ago - this is one of my favourite layouts!

I have used Layers of Color images, which are just perfect with this gorgeous birdbath!  The butterfly is from the Flutterescent Clear Art Stamps set and that gorgeous flourish from Nature Walk set 

 The prima flowers are part of the fabulous and generous RAK from Sabrina (aka okimom2girlz).  I made the other flower - it is a favourite flower and so easy to make, I love the vintage feel it has! 

This bird is one of my favourite LOC images and is from the Royal Birds Clear Art Stamps - it seems to suit any project! 

I am also linking this to the Wild Orchid Challenge which is all about lovely lace - I love the lace on projects and especially the old vintage style lace on this layout!  I am also linking to The Studio Challenge where we are to use Old and New Stash on the same Layout - easy - The DP has been in my cupboard for over a year and the flowers are new from a RAK!!

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment - I love it when you come!  I hope you are having a great day and have the time to stop and enjoy life!  This morning as the kids were heading off to school, my DH stopped the car and they signalled to me to look up the street and there were two kangaroos coming down the street - when they saw us they stopped (maybe it was the sight of me in my dressing gown! LOL) and went into the neighbours driveway, turned around and hopped down a lane way - what a great site - I just love the wildlife we have here and  am so grateful that I live somewhere I can see it and enjoy it!  God bless you!

  14. Oh wow. How cool is that!! I got up one night around 1am because I heard a noise, looked out the window and saw HERD of cows in our yard. And we didn't live "out in the country", so image our surprise, teehee. I guess they were just city cows trying to run away to the country. I just LOVE your slide show! You have a wonderful home. I don't know how you keep all the gardening up. And your pups are adorable. Have a wonderful day my friend!
