Layout - the bird bites!

Scrap the Boys has a fun challenge on this month, to use geometric shapes on your layout!  I L-O-V-E using blocky shapes on layouts, and I just knew that this gorgeous Happy Snaps paper from Kaisercraft would fit the bill perfectly.  I've had the paper pack for a while, but I have used every square centimetre of it because I love it so much!

These photos were taken at Birdworld in Kuranda, when The Boy met this overly friendly parrot.  He had to wear his hat the whole time not only for sun protection, but also so that the birds wouldn't eat or steal his cochlear implant processors!  Not sure how we would have explained that to Cochlear.... LOL

Papers: Happy Snaps (Kaisercraft)
Dies: "happy" (Heidi Swapp), alpha dies

I always like to get inky on my layouts, but it was fun this time to stay with a clean design with lots of horizontal and vertical lines, as well as those gorgeous chevrons!

Scrap the Boys: Let's go geo!

Layout - enjoy

After a bit of a scrapping hiatus, I was excited this last week to finally find some time to join in on some online challenges.  The current one from Kraft+ was particularly fun, with a recipe challenge featuring four rules:

And here is what I came up with!

Something old - Papers from the Prairie Lane collection (Kaisercraft - released in 2010, and sitting in my stash since then!), Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (Stampin' Up!)
Something new - "enjoy" die from treat bag die set (Stampin' Up!)
Something borrowed - blue pen for journaling (Typo, and borrowed from a friend but I'm gonna need my own now!)
Something blue - TiffanyLou Blue starburst spray (Lindy's Stamp Gang), Sapphire glimmer mist (Tattered Angels), kid in blue onesie (LOL)

Other stuff: stamps (Theresa Collins), gold glimmer mist (Tattered Angels), circle and heart dies (Stampin' Up!), whisper white and early espresso inks (Stampin' Up!), gold brads

Entered into the April Kraft+ challenge.
