A Little Bit of Country

I have to admit that this layout was really out of the box for me for a couple of reasons. First off I hardly ever scrapbook about myself. I never like my pictures and I don't know what to journal. Second, I used a lot of diecutting on this page-something I'm still getting used to. I had my cricut for months before I started really using and enjoying it. All in all though I'm really pleased with the way this turned out. Being a country girl through and through all of these 3birds products worked out perfectly for me! I started out with patterned paper from the Straight From the Nest pack (I love the clouds!) I then used 3birds tweet trimmings for the adorable banner across the top. To make it appear like a clothes line I used cricut images of clothing. I added some dimension with cardboard, felt, and denim to make it feel more country and tada! Hope you like it!

Sweet Baby Boy

I love how soft 3Birds products can be. I decided to use some of the gorgeous die cut pp to make a baby LO about my DS when he was just a few days old. Keeping things somewhat muted and monotone, with some beige thrown in, really helps create a soft, delicate look.

Peek A Boo!

I have a quick and simple LO to share today, using a fun sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. Sometimes using a sketch is the best way to get yourself going and scrapping fast. There are many blogs and sites out there that have plenty of different challenges as well as sketches available for free. And I'm happy to say that this LO was picked as a Sketchy Thursdays Fav! :)
