Pecking Order

Hi everyone, I'm back!!!! I was whisked away for a little birthday trip last week and have missed being involved in the SOUS reveals for the past 2 weeks! It was wonderful to get back to scrapping and set aside all the other stuff life brings my way!
This week we have a wonderful sketch from pagemaps and I used the double photo design to scrap some pix of myself and my siblings from my birthday last year. My family does not love to have pix taken but I will keep taking them and scrapping them even against their will....LOL! We seldom have an opportunity to get everyone in a photo so I am happy to have these. I used K&Co papers and my new Songbird cartridge for this page.
All of the birds and birdcages along with the title are all from the circut cart Songbird.
I distressed my papers and inked the edges, a bit of lace between the pix and lots of adhesive pearl accents.
Together is cut from Graphically Speaking.....The numbers that show our sibling 'pecking order' are from a clock making kit. I used the clock mechanism for another project and had thrown the adhesive numbers into my scrap supplies...finally found a great use for them!
The birdcages on the Songbird cart were the whole motivation for adding it to my collection, I just love them!
Being the frugal scrapper that I am I knew I could create the tickets that are so popular on layouts....so I did just that~ I purchased a roll of plain white tickets @ Constructive Play Things for a song. I distressed them with some ink and added the words using the font from Storybook. I also used my Crop A Dile Big Bite to add the grommets to the flowers made with the cornflower punch from MS. The blue flowers have several layers of the same flower bound together.
My birds are cut with the Songbird cart and I added wings from Indie Art. The greenery is from Stretch Your Imagination.
I have missed all of you so much and cannot wait to pay you all a bloggy visit to see what you've been up to!!!!
So now hop on over to SOUS and check out the teams designs...they are all awesome....and we have a winner to the blog candy give away as well.....congrats Lisa.....hope you enjoy the goodies!!!!
