Scrapping the weekend away {Basic Grey: Olivia}

Amy is having a crop this weekend at Birds of A Feather to welcome her new design team. That's where you will find ME this weekend! I've already completed two challenges...the first was a sketch by Liz Chidester
 The wind is crazy outside so I didn't have time for closeups! The wind even blew the knot out of the bakers twine that I used for the little banner. I checked the mail this afternoon and received a package from my friend Kayla with LOTS of scrapping goodies inside....including the twine! How fun that I was able to use something right away :) Thanks, Kayla!!

The next challenge was to create a layout with a predominant color that we don't normally use as well as to fussy cut. I don't think that green is a normal color of mine so I went with that as my base. I fussy cute the green strip at the top, as well as the top and bottom of the patterned paper. The pictures are of my little one when she had a pretty bad case of thrush from the antibiotic she had been on at the time.
I'm running really low on my white alphabets so I've been having to get pretty creative to complete my titles! For this last layout, I used Pretty Little Studio's sketch #5. I won a gift card for my entry last week and can't wait for the products to arrive, I'm so giddy waiting for my rainbows!

I hope to be back tomorrow with a few more pages - if your weekend is free, you should come checkout the challenges!
