Your Heart Will Fly

"So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land"
Peter Pan

Isn't it just the most gorgeous quote? And worked so well for the recent photos I have of my girls when we were on holidays in Daydream Island.

Nadia's outdone herself again with this beautiful sketch which just so happens to be the July 15th challenge at Once Upon A Sketch. And the journaling criteria this time around is an easy one...... just use a quote!

So now let me tell you the story of those jaw-dropping flowers because you'll need to know! There's a new Australian manufacturer on the market called Manor House Creations who are producing these divine blooms (part of their Spring 2011 collection).

Not only are they exceptionally good quality but at are at a competitive price compared to other similar products on the market. Incidentally, they're having a DT call at the moment. If you're interested check out the details on thier blog.

I was among the lucky group of the DT girls who got to play with these new products. On my layout here I've used "The Islands - Sunset" (big yellow flower), "Ballroom - Tango" (the little red ones) and a mixture of small and medium rose leaves.

They worked so well with the colours in the Basic Grey "Out of Print" papers I cut up for the swirls and flourishes. I'm so happy with the way this layout turned out.

Now, if you want to play along with us at Once Upon a Sketch then you'll get the chance to win some of your very own Manor House Creation products. Check out this prize......

Plus, there's also fantastic prizes being sponsored by our regular supporters Imaginarium Designs, and an entire Pink Paislee Queen Bee collection pack up for grabs too. See you over there :-)
