Birds, Bunnies & More!

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter B. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their B element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Theodora then you're on the right track!

My kids love looking at the animals at Petland so one boring summer afternoon we went to the petshop to break up the boredom!  We had not been to this particular one before and they had blast checking out the birds, bunnies and guinea pigs and more!  

The retired paper Olivia is featured here!  Though it is not available for purchase it is still available through Studio J!  I also used the centerpoint feature on my Cricut with the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the circle picture of the bird!  It was so easy I placed the photo in the center of the mat and put the blade in the center too, pushed the centerpoint button and cut a circles the size I wanted!  Viola perfect circle with the bird in the center!

I also used the Sunset ribbon and a metal charm to add the final touch to the layout!
