Give a Little Whistle


Boy oh boy is parenting kicking my butt lately! And crafting is giving me something to enjoy while we (hubby and I) wait out the storm! Ever have those times? I hope there's a lot of nods and raised hands so I don't feel I'm the only one! ;)

Anyway, here's a scrapbook page I really enjoyed playing around with. I used an awesome new Two Peas in a Bucket digital kit called 'Give a Little Whistle'

by Hazel Olive Designs.

This is my girl Cleo and I knew this kit would be perfect for a page about her. She's a conure and a talkative one at that. She'll say "What are you doing? I'm cleaning the cage!"

I adore the accents in this kit! The above 'External Parts of a Bird' accent is perfect! And below, check out that adorable flock of feathered friends!

I used some Spellbinders

dies to make the frame for those cute birds and for the title pictured below. I love shaped edges and used three Fiskars border punches.

As usual, I added hand stitching.

Oh and I added buttons. I love buttons! And Doodlebug

makes the best!

In the middle of all this scrappy goodness is Cleo! Isn't she beautiful? She's such a sweetie. An ornery sweetie sometimes! See the tip of that beak...she gets me good with that little machete sometimes!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my page share!
