Creative Scrappers + more MME mixed with some Lil' Red Rocket....

I have always been a HUGE fan of My Minds Eye products.....but I'm loving them even more lately!
Their latest ranges are just WOW...and I'm also loving the hexagons that they've introduced into some of their papers.....and I'm also loving handcutting my own hexagon shapes.

So, I'm here to share another layout I created last night using Creative Scrappers sketch # 205 using some MME & Lil Red Rocket goodness...... with some added hexagons - which just happens to be this months challenge on the My Minds Eye blog - to use hexagons!!  Yay

Here is the sketch....


And here is my layout....


I've opted to use one larger photo, rather than the 3 smaller squares.





I've hand cut a heap of hexagons from Follow your heart & Miss Caroline ranges & my base paper is from the Miss Caroline "Fiddlesticks" range also.


I've also used some gorgeous Lil' Red Rocket embellishments in my cluster....a gorgeous big owl button (isn't he just the cutest!!!) and the beautiful teal chiffon flower <3

I've also used my new MFT leaf flourish die that Suzanne ordered in for me (available in the Handmade by Suzanne store HERE, but you'll need to be quick!).....If you love flourishes, you JUST HAVE TO GET this die!!! It is fantastic & so versatile I just know that it's going to get a lot of use from me...I love it already! I've cut a few pieces with it & then cut some of them into smaller pieces to give a more balanced feel to my little cluster . There is also a felt rolled rose flower cut using another MFT die, Rolled Rose and also a small Rosette from the Tim Holtz Rosette die. (as you can see, I'm loving all my dies atm too...lol)







Okie Doke...that's all from me, folks, I'm off to tackle a few jobs for the day :)
Thanks so much for dropping by & for all your lovely comments...I really do enjoy reading them & they really do make my day! :) xxx
