NSD scrapping (1)

I indulged just a little this weekend for National Scrapbooking Day... so many amazing challenges and so little time!

This one was submitted to:
Studio Calico ~ Furry Friends (well, actually, he's a feathered friend...)  #SCNSD16
Scrapbook.com ~ NSD Pet Themed (featuring one of our cheeky roosters)
* Pink Paislee ~ Raquel's Get Stitchy (featuring Pink Paislee papers and stitching) #ppNSD2016

Bazzill Basics Smoothies - Blackberry Swirl cardstock 
Pink Paislee Vintage Moon - Harvest Moon patterned paper
Pink Paislee Spring Fling - Flower Beds patterned paper
Martha Stewart Garden Trellis deep edge punch
Bazzill Basic Smoothies - Walnut Cream cardstock

Bazzill Basics Bitty Blossoms - Arroyo flowers
Kaisercraft 3.5cm Cream paper flower
Kaisercraft 2cm Cream paper flower
Heidi Swapp Cinnamon Red 1/8" ribbon
Buttons from my habby stash


This one was inspired by:
* Scrap Challenge YOUrself ~ Mood board.  I used tones of green and blue, and included a little bird and daisies to tie in with the spring theme.
* Scrap it with a Song ~ Best Day of My Life. In my journalling I write that we had the best time ever at the Wheel of Brisbane.  The lyrics of the song, I stretched my hands out to the sky also fit with the atmosphere of the photo with its beautiful views.

And also submitted to:
* Studio Calico ~ Creating Layers (Layers of circles for my embellishments, layered title) #SCNSD16
