My Lil' Chickadee Layout & Our Contest Continues!

Happy July everyone!!  This is a layout I created using the new collection by Pion Design - Grandma's School Book.  I adore the colors of this collection and the versatility of these papers!
For this layout, I used a sketch by Mistra Hoolahan.  I flipped the sketch 180 degrees and then mirrored it.
The title letters were cut from the Cut-Out sheet that is part of this paper collection.
I used a template to create the brick background.  The Mini Birds are Dusty Attic chipboard elements that I inked and painted.  
All of the Dusty Attic chipboard on this layout, including these Grass Clusters, can be purchased HERE.
Mini Picket Fence DA0698
Bird Houses DA0669
The decorative die-cuts that are tucked behind all of the layers were cut using the Shadow Flowers dies by Spellbinders.
The bird nest is a double-layer chippie.  Can you see the two little eggs in the nest?
The larger flower is my Romantique Rose.  You can view the flower tutorial  HERE.

Hope you are all well and getting your craft on!  I appreciate you stopping by.  
Take care and have a beautiful day!
