Happy Little Bunch

I was up on the American Crafts blog last week with a couple of layouts featuring confetti. They actually had a whole week dedicated to confetti so make sure to pop over there to see all the projects.

One of the layouts I did featured my youngest daughter at a local farm, checking out the ducks by the pond. Once she spotted them, she wandered over to check them out and got really close. Luckily someone walked up and offered us some bread to feed them. Wasn't that nice? Anyway, Reese looked so sweet and the whole scene just seemed so serene.
Supplies: Lucky You Paper (35967) - Lucky Charm, Pretty Poppies Paper (35966) - Lucky Charm, Starlight Paper (35981) - Lucky Charm, Bright Bauble Paper (35970) - Lucky Charm, Large Tags (85656) - Bits, Adhesive Badges (85658) - Flair, Adhesive Backed Flowers (85651) - Embellishments, Rub On Transfer Sheets (42395) - MiniMarks, Die Cut Cards (85649) - Bits, Printed Chipboard Shapes (85655) - House, Treasure Vanilla (42392) - Thickers

To create my page, I added a heavy dose of cream paint for the foundation. I then layered some of the papers and stitched over them in a circle. HINT: draw 1 circle lightly with a pencil so you can "follow" the line when you're stitching. I did that for my first stitch and then went loosy goosy on the other stitches.

I just love my layers! To give them a good, chunky feel, I sometimes add foam squares under them.

Journaling? It's on the "Remember Today" card tucked in all that layering.
Lastly, I did the title. I used a combination of a die cut, chipboard and super frosty, glistening Thickers. The little letters were popped out of the chipboard elements and I LOVE THEM!

Okay, thanks for stopping by today. Oh, one more thing. Here's your...
