I've been dying to scrapbook these photos for a while, and I thought this was the perfect time. 

Here's the story behind the photos:  My husband and I moved into our house in May 2008.  When my parents came to visit for the first time, they brought us a hanging flowering basket.  A few weeks later, I was watering my plant and I noticed that there was a birds nest with 5 eggs inside!  My husband and I checked the nest daily and we were able to watch the 5 eggs/birds grow until they were old enough to leave the nest.  How neat! 



Details:
Basic Grey Bird Cage Paper
K&Co Bird Stickers
Cricut Plantin Schoolbook (circle and lettering)

How TWEET Lauren! Ok that was corny lol but I think these pictures are sooooooo adorable and sweet! I love when you're able to watch nature in it's natural habitat and not behind a glass or with a ticket in your hand. You done a beautiful job with your layout!
