Sunny Days Layout

Hi everyone!  This is a layout I made for the Sunny Days Challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2.  The challenge was to have "Sunny Days" on the project. I am also entering this in the Getting Scrappy Challenge - Getting Punchy over at Amanda's Crafts And More.  This challenge was to use any type of punch on your layout. I used a punch for the fence, grass, clouds, and butterflies.  I've always wanted to use the clothesline cutout from the Country Life Cartridge but never got the chance.  I thought this would be a really good time to use it.  Hope you have a great rest of the day.  Thanks for looking!

Materials Used:
  • Country Life Cricut Cartridge - Clothesline and Flowers
  • Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge - "Sunny Days" and Sun
  • George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge - Photo Mat
  • Martha Stewart Fence Punch
  • Martha Stewart Grass Punch
  • Fiskars Butterfly Punch
  • Cloud Punch
  • Mini Clothespins from A.C. Moore
  • Stickles and Bling
  • White Gelly Roll Pen
