Creative Scrappers #159 & Pion Design

(For the SCRAP THAT! blog hop, please click link or scroll to next post)

Back for another Creative Scrappers reveal using the wonderful sketch #159 by Nicole Nowosad and gorgeous Pion Design Papers.

My "together" layout was created from the "Studio of Memories" collection. I tried something a little different and left a lot of negative space on this layout for a change. This is a picture of my grandfather when he met his newest great grandson (and his older brother) for the first time. My grandfather's favorite color is blue and he adores birds so this collection is a perfect reflection of him. He has fed hundreds of thousands of birds with his numerous feeders and bird houses in his yard over his lifetime.


Here is a close-up of a butterfly cut-out and the flower style used on my layout. These flowers are actually produced for bridal decor but since they are made of acid-free mulberry paper, they are safe to use for scrapbooking.

Here is the beautiful sketch that I flipped...

I also used TCR palette #50 as inspiration...

 Thanks for taking a look at my work today!

What a beautiful page. I love all of the white space. I'm scared of white space so I admire those who can pull it off. LOL I love the birds and the flowers are so precious. *insert eyeballs peeking over a fence* TAG!!! LMAO
