Birds of a Feather.....

I cannot begin to tell you how much my girls make me laugh.  And it's a good thing, because it certainly helps them out big time when they're supposed to be in trouble.  Anyway, this day below, was their 2nd visit to the dentist's office.  Thankfully, their first visit was incredibly fun and they don't have irrational fears of dentists like my husband someone I won't mention.  Now, a quick background point for all my readers:  My husband is a musician and as we all know, musicians usually beat to a different drum.  Often times their sense of fashion goes hand in hand with their creative musical flair.  So, I must submit, that my two daughters incredible sense of fashion comes from their Daddy. ; )

Isn't this how EVERYONE dresses up to go to the dentist?  Do notice that my youngest carries a penguin in her purse instead of the requisite yippy dog.  THAT, she got from me and it makes me proud.  So looking at how my two birds of a feather flock together...I now know that I have years of interesting outfits and fun times to look forward too.

Now on to the deets. I picked up the Cosmo Cricket Togetherness Deluxe Kit, from Lil' Lambs Boutique for this one.  It is a very whimsical line with birds, butterflies, clouds and kites.  I used all paper for this layout and will use the embellies, Glimmer Mist and Flocking Powder for my next project....coming up soon. 

The edges all have faux stitching inspired by one of my favorite scrappers, Mireille.  The look is quick and easy. First, punch holes around the edge of your piecing with a hole piercer.  Second, with a black marker, run around the edges of your piecing over top of the punched holes. Third, use a white marker (Sharpie Fine Point used here) to draw tiny white lines in between the punched holes.  And there you go, easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Happy Fall favorite season of the year!!!
