Bird is the Word & The Paper Variety

**I edited this post to add the sketches I used for my layouts. I totally spaced and forgot to give credit to the lovely ladies who inspired my pages!**

Happy Monday! I'm sharing two layouts today that I made for a few challenges. First up is the "REMEMBER" challenge at Bird is the Word. I love these one-word challenges where you can interpret it any way you want! Here is what I made...I love how the colors on this one turned out. I wasn't sure about combining the wood grain paper with the blue, but I actually really like it now that it's finished. I love how Reese looks all girly and frilly, all the while standing on her Daddy's trailer! She is so far from frilly :)




These little pink flowers are from The Dollar Tree! They were white and I spritzed them to match the pink I wanted. You never know what little treasures you may find for just $1.00!


I used this amazing sketch from The Scrappiest...I saw it and wanted to use it immediately!


I created this layout for the fan fold embellishment challenge at The Paper Variety. I love making these cute flowers and they're so easy! These are some of my favorite pictures of Paige in her cute little swim suit. I love her chunky thighs!




This is the sketch I used for this layout. It's an old one from Audrey Yeager that I've had saved on my computer forever. These pictures just seemed to fit it perfectly! Check out Audrey's blog HERE.


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful week :)
