123 Get Scrappy Challenge #11

FOR Twisted Tuesday Challenges POST click HERE!

Hey Everyone,

Can't believe it's June already.  My teacher friends have been counting down and apparently there is only 13 days left of school!  Unbelievable!  My oldest will be having her first "double digit" birthday next week!  

Been a crazy few weeks around here.  Summer has finally arrived and it's been beautiful.  Sunny, warm, breezy, and not too humid.  Love it!

Another board is up and running over at 123 Get Scrappy.

Pretty exciting!  Here's my take!

Paper: My Mind's Eye, K and Co.; birdcage die: Tim Holtz/Sizzix; butterfly and flying bird punch: Martha Stewart; date stamp: Hero Arts;corrugated letters: Jilly bean Soup; pink letters: Making Memories

The burlap I used for the bird cage was laminated on one side which made for easy die cutting and gave it a nice stiffness.  It curved on it's own and I added some pop dots in the centre to ensure it stays curved.  Love the texture the burlap adds.

Here is this month's inspiration board!  I used the middle row: Woodgrain: Brads: Bird Cage

I used the colour scheme and twist over at Color Me Scrappy: Challenge #63

Be sure to check out all the details and some more inspiration from the DT over at 123 Get Scrappy!

Can't wait to see your creations!
