You and Me Page for Bird is the Word Challenge
Lately I've been missing birthdays! Shirley told me the other day that she celebrated one! This was one of the photos she gave me when I had begged the last time for photos. I thought it worked perfectly for the new Bird is the Word challenge! I really tried to keep the title a bit soft, since I wasn't sure if she'd want to add journaling, another small photo or two....and maybe another title below? I just used Picasa to add that title to the photo.
I love my little flowers, vintage owl card, and butterfly! For the most part (I changed out a turquoise button and added the yellow velvet flowers & leaves) these came straight from a really cool blogger who runs a site called Eye Candy Magic AND who will be running a sale very soon. If you check her blog out, her latest eye candy involves a red mushroom! Love it!
(If you run a blog, she is also asking for people to link up her blog & sale plus she's having a give away. Who wouldn't want to win that prize package!)
Another technique I used on this page was chalk. The flowers under the cute little owl card and doily flowers were originally white. This sheet of paper was one I got from Karen a while back and I bet she doesn't recognize it between the glimmer, the ink pads, and bling! I believe it's from Little Yellow Bicycle but I don't know much else than that!
This little butterfly came in the kit from Sam as well. It had a purple belly I removed for future use and added a flower. The twine was also included and is really nice too! The cheese cloth was originally white and I just added some yellow mist to it.
Anyhow, as always, e-mail me or drop me a comment if you have any questions!
Happy Belated Birthday Shirley and enjoy!
