New layout and info on easy birdhouse

Good evening all! I have been following this blog "Scrap Jacked" for a bit now and wanting to join in but just could not find the time but tonight I finally sat myself down and decided to do a layout. I have not scrapbooked in ages and all these photos are piling up. I decided to go most current and start with our trip to Paris because I saw Mandy's layout and got the perfect idea. I wanted to use a large shot in the background. (Sorry about the phot but the flash showed right in the middle, the shot below shows the castle better). At Scrap Jacked their DT gives you tons of inspirational layouts and you just scraplift one for your inspiration. They have a monthly challenge and this months challenge is sponsored by Scrap Therapy. Hop on over to their blog here to see Mandy's and the rest of the DT.
This layout is pretty simple (just how I like it). I used the photos mounted in the background like a window with the photo in the forground mounted. This photo is a style I take every trip we take to Disney. Dave and Belle walking through the park. It is a tradition with us. I used Prima papers and flowers. The flowers are coloured with Promarker. I also used some Tim Holtz Grunge board flourishes for the vine. I added the lantern(Tim Holtz) and the ribbon(my stash) along with a bit of sewing. I am not really into over the wall Disney on may pages as I prefer more like "Hidden Mickeys" Can you spot them? There is one in the vine and I added a Tinkerbell in the lantern.


Now onto the birdhouse...Remember this post a few back about the easy birdhouse I made? I had posted to let me know if anyone wanted the pattern I made for this and the directions and a few people sid they did. Well I am having a bit of trouble uploading them as they are in a PDF format so if you would like a copy please email me at scrapbookcafe2@yahoo.com and I will email you a copy. It is very easy to do, just print out on coloured card and follow the directions.
Well that is all for tonight. Now to finish up and get ready for school tomorrow and my class. Hope you have a great night and thanks for stopping in.
