2 Cute Critters

Here it is - my first layout of the year 2010 - these two cute critters are my nephew Jeffery and his niece Leah. I finally got the excuse to use my Stampin' Up! set, Forest Friends which co-ordinated with this paper really well, matted then inked around the edges with cat's eye dark brown chalk ink.
And there are owls on the paper, my favorite.

A close up on the journaling for which I used the journaling spot stamps (Autumn Leaves) that my new NSSS JennyK sent me the other day. I used 3 (count 'em 1..2..3..) Cricut carts for this layout - A Child's Year for the red scalloped title background which I popped with pop dots to well..pop....
...the title is cut from Lyrical Letters and the heart is from Plantin Schoolbook. I also used American Craft Premium ribbon - Green Ruffles, hand dyed skittles and the paper is "woodland friends" from The Paper Studio.
All in all I am quite proud of my accomplishment - I've had this floating around in my head for a couple days now and finally got the time to put it down on paper.
