Hello Simple Stories friends! Welcome to my home. Every spring our family gets to take part in a little miracle. I have a flower bucket that I've been hanging on our front door for the last 6 years that we've lived here in Colorado. A little bird decided that bucket would make a great home for her nest of eggs. She happily builds the nest, lays her eggs, waits for them to hatch, feeds the babies, then watches them leave, all from her perch on our door.
And since the peep hole in our door happens to be exactly at nest level, we can check in on her yearly process. Numerous time a day, you'll find one of us peeping through the door to see what's up. The only problem with our little guest is she scares the pants off any human visitors to our home, waiting until they've rung the doorbell to suddenly fly away, she's made a few of them duck! We warn our regular visitors, but there's always the random guest who has a terrified look on their face when we open the door. It's only for a couple of months, and we enjoy it so much, we deal with it. I took a picture (not a very good one, but it's our view...) this year through the peep hole and decided it was time to document it.
I love the Documented line for two reasons: its dark colors ground a design quite well, and you can add any color you feel like adding and they don't compete. I love Fabulous because it has all the rich colors I want to add to my scrapping.
Here's a few details from my layout that you can employ in your own scrapbooking. I used the bird on a branch sticker from the Documented line as a mask because the text on the sticker made it a little too busy for my design. I gently adhered it, misted over the whole page, then carefully removed the sticker for later use. Because the stickers are coated, you can easily wipe off any mist and have little to no change in the color of the sticker. Double duty at its best!
Another alteration I made was the the mini alphabet stickers. They come in solid and outlined letters. I didn't have enough of the solid letters so I decided to color in the outlined letters with a paint pen. I think it gives a more coherent look in my title.
