Hey Birdie...

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Have you ever worked on a layout and been a little sad when you had finished it? Not because you didn't like working on it... quite the opposite actually. I made this layout the other night and happily snipped away at all the little critters, trees, flowers, butterflies etc... it took all night but was such a relaxing and enjoyable process that when I'd finished I stopped and realised that I was disappointed it was all over!


The photo was the very first ever 'family portrait' that we had taken and is now quite out-of-date as my daughter is 10 years old, not to mention that we also have a son... however, it still remains special!


I've put this layout together using Kaisercraft 'Hey Birdie' as a sample for one of Scrapville's Kits which will be one of two "Special Editions" for the month of August only! Hey Birdie is such a fun and whimsical line of product with a gorgeous colour scheme of pinks, browns and greens, not to mention the most adorable little birds and funky trees!

I think I've finally concluded that this layout best represents the style of scrapping that I would call my own...All the fussy cutting and creating of little story-book style pages is definitely what I love to do best! For now anyway... LOL!
I am slowly wading my way through the pile of projects I have at the moment so will have lots to share in the following weeks.
From farm to you...
