Fine Feathered Friend

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of a whole day of cropping with Carolyn and Audrey! It was wonderful to spend an entire day being creative and I actually got a few things completed! One of the projects I worked on was a layout using photos of a gorgeous cardinal that visits our backyard frequently.

On the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum, Shelby had issued a challenge to use small photos on a layout. I normally use larger pictures, so I thought it would be fun to give this challenge a try.

I started by printing my pictures in a smaller Polaroid format. Then I used leftover bits and pieces of paper and embellishments and with a little help from Carolyn (brads) and Christa (title) I love how the page turned out!

I even used my all time favorite coffee stain stamp!

The only thing better than a day of cropping is a day of cropping where you actually get something done! Thanks for looking ~


  1. Love this! The pictures are awesome, the layout is super and I especially love that bit in the top corner...the trim reminds me of clouds, so fitting!

  2. So pretty Joanne. I love the design and the special little elements and touches!

  6. Did't know that there was actual real stamp got the coffee stain! Cool! I had thought that you used a jar

  7. The stamp is from Close To My Heart... I bought it a few years ago and I still love it!
