August Challenge at Scrap Around The World

Hi sweets,
When I came home from work yesterday our sweet little rat "Moppie" died I was glad he didn't die alone (hubby and son where home).
It's so weird you get so attached to a pet that most of the time only lives up to a maximum of two years......he had a great live so he past away at age two years and eight months.
He was such a sweety:
You will be missed!
Now up for the scrappy/happy part of this post......
Today I want to share a layout I created for the August challenge at:
owner Helen Tilbury
I always get very happy from their challenges this month is no different look at this amazing mood board:
I think this mood board is very romantic don't you?
Gorgeous work from Eila Sandberg and Jules McKenna-De Lumen for creating such a create moodboard/sketch 
I got kind of carried away with the many gorgeous dies by Cheery Lynn Designs while creating this layout (so much that my Big Shot broke down on me) so glad I have guarantee on it I just bought it last May! I used a picture of little old me yesssss I scrapped about myself  LOL
So this is my take on the August challenge:
Believe (in yourself)
And now a couple of close-ups

I used the gorgeous Divine collection by Prima Marketing....
other supplies:
Cheery Lynn Dies
Imaginarium Designs chipboard
Manor House flowers
Petaloo flowers
ZVA bling swirls
