Bird Resort Double Page Layout

Have really been in love lately with geometric shapes and when I find a sketch like that it makes me happy. Check this out, it's a  new challenge blog to me...Keeping the Best. Had to sneak this in as their deadline is approaching. 

Look a few liberties with the sketch and of course added a second page in keeping with the first. 

It's a great way to use up paper scraps! Here is my first page, not taken from the sketch, but made to look like a continuation. 

And, here is the second page taken from the sketch. 

Loving these blooms I made. Haven't made any in ages!

Here is another shot of them with Luke's house all cut out, a Lizzy Hill trick, at it's finest. 

Just a fun page to celebrate a cool project my son made with Grandpa Bruce. 

They spent quite a bit of time on this including drawing it up on scratch paper. It was a good experience. 

UNFORTUNATELY, they assumed I'd want to put it outside and let the birds hang out in it. Boy were they wrong. I am hoarding it to myself right now in my living room...See how pretty it is?

The birds can look at it through the windows....

Happy Friday!
