Tweet Tweet, So Sweet!

Good morning everyone! I wanted to share more layouts that I did using the Apron Strings April Smaller than a Breadbox kit. It is full of We R Memory Keeper’s “Peep”, My Little Shoebox’s “Home Tweet Home” and My Mind’s Eye’s “Stella & Rose”. I want to show you what I did with the My Little Shoebox’s “Home Tweet Home” today.
It was kismet that the girls and I visited our Nature Center over Spring Break and attended a class about nests and eggs. This line was perfect to scrap all those photos!
The first layout is pictures of the girls coming face to face with a real nest (Amory said "Mom it is a real live nest" - I didn't explain that a live thing is living - way too complicated!). Amory was ready to jump in, Priscilla was kind of umm yeah don't really want to touch that! Gotta love preteens!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Candy Shoppe Designs  - to be inspired by this collage and I was inspired by the colors. I saw alot of blues, greens and pinks in the collage which inspired the colors for my layout!
Sketchabilities - use this sketch!
The next layout is of the girls creating their own nests. They gathered bits and pieces of twigs, leaves, grass, and paper just like a bird using chopsticks to mimic a bird beak. Then they glued in onto a rolled down paper bag. The girls had a really good time creating their nests - glueing almost too much on for the paper bag nest to handle!

I am entering this in the following challenge also:

With the scraps I created a thank you card for the one of Amory's teachers. I used leftover stickers to create my own flashcards. The other teacher will get a card made with the scraps from the next layout I do!
Thank You Card
 
Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
