Bye Bye Birdie
Create a project with a bird on it.
To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.
Here is my project for the week:
I took these pictures of my son, Dallas, way back in November 2013, and I'm just getting around to scraping them. This was his 6 year photo shoot, and they were taken outside his elementary school. I love the fall look of the pictures, with all the trees and the fall colors, so I wanted a scrapbook page that would reflect that as well. I used a lot of different cartridges to make this layout, but it was worth the extra effort. I used Cindy Loo for the tree, Doodlecharms for the leaves, Home Decor for the bird, Opposites Attract for the "T" in Thankful, and Cursive 101 for the rest of the word. I didn't like the T, so found one that I liked better.
I used a Spectrum Noir marker to "edge" the leaves, Tim Hotz Tea Dye Distress Ink to ink the edges of the paper and the tree, colored in the bird using a red and orange Glaze pen, and then popped the bird up using some foam tape.
Way back in November 2013, I took these photos of my son, Dallas to document and celebrate him at 6 years old. We took them outside his elementary school, and I absolutely love how they turned out. He is such a mess, we had a lot of fun with these pictures. I hope you love them as much as I do.
This last picture is not very good, but I love it either way. It show his personality, and you can all see it, when I say we had a lot of fun. I LOVE my little monster!
My name is JoNeita Kelly and I have been crafting for at least the last 20 years. I live in Forney, Texas with my son, Dallas. I am a High School teacher and Cheerleading Coach. I love to craft and to continue to improve my photography and editing skills whenever I have free time. What I love most is telling our story using pictures, it is the most important gift I can leave my family.
