Australia Day

Happy Australia Day to all of those in Australia and living elsewhere - it is such a great day to celebrate, we live in such a blessed land and have so much to be grateful for.

I could not resist sharing this layout I have recently completed, the photo was taken on Australia Day two years ago

Our family we attended the Big Breakfast held in the city and had a fabulous time....I thought the Websters Pages DP was perfect for the occasion - and just quietly, it made creating this layout so easy.

Adding Spellbinders Classic Scallops Edgeability, this has been cut with my Grand Calibur, I have also added some cute braid and ric ric added to highlight the chipboard sentiment.  I have just' reconnnected' with chipboard and have used it for the circle, covering it with some Stampin' Up DP - from my endless pile of leftovers

3D flowers, crochet lace and more ric rac - don't you love the citrus colour - so summery!

 Rubons are perfect for layouts - and is the finishing touch for this layout.

This layout is for the following challenges:
