Sunday scrapping (1)

Clearing up some packets of photos and some offcuts from my scrap desk... and very happy with how this page came together:

Webster's Pages Hello World - Little Moments patterned paper
Simple Stories Summer Vibes - Yellow Grid/Yellow Wood patterned paper
Crate Paper Toybox - Explore patterned paper
Basic Grey Lime Rickey - Howdy Doody patterned paper (bird motifs)
Studio Calico Classic Calico 2 - Tiny Stars wood veneers

This layout is based on the February sketch challenge at Scrap the Girls. It's my second take on this sketch {the first one is HERE} and this time I took a much more linear approach, with a photo montage.

The colours were inspired by the February mood board at Scrapbook Boutique:


Next, a little more pocket page scrapping to catch up some 2012 photographs.  {Clickety-click for a closer look:}

Simple Stories Sn@p! Insta-page inserts
Simple Stories Daily Grind - Journalling Elements card
Alphabet cutting dies (unknown brand)
Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden - Entrance patterned paper
Polka dot washi tape
Twinings foil packaging
Kaisercraft Vines cutting die
Basic Grey Lime Rickey - Howdy Doody patterned paper (fussy cut birds)
Cosmo Cricket Social Club - Swingin' patterned paper

I'm submitting this one at:
* Mystical Scrapbooks ~ One Little Word cyber crop.  My word is BIRDS.
* Simon Says Monday ~ My Favourite Tool.  My guillotine, to cut the photos to size for pocket scrapping.  And also my scissors, fussy cutting the bird motifs from patterned paper.
* Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting my blog!
