Peter Rabbit & A Scratchy Throat!
When will it be spring? We have been bombarded with snow for way too long! I can't wait for the weather to change - well at least get slightly warmer. The kids at school are coughing and sneezing all over me during story time. Hand sanitizer has become my new best friend. With that said - I am still getting sick! Not full fledged cold - just that irritable scratchy throat and cough. I guess I should be grateful that it hasn't gotten worse - knock on wood!!
I have been pretty lazy with this blog recently I've noticed! I think it's because it takes me a little longer to create 12x12 layouts instead of cards. They are so fun to make - it's like creating a whole new world sometimes! Plus I have so many ideas flowing - wish I had the time to just do it all!
For this layout I decided to go down a slightly different path. With my longing for spring, I couldn't help but think of Beatrix Potter and good ol' Peter. This layout was drawn and cut by hand - I just love the soft, subtle feel. I think mama rabbit is my favorite piece of this layout. Her basket lined with vintage lace really makes here "pop".
Again this layout is listed HERE on Ebay with many more detailed pictures to help inspire your own creativity. For all you Ebay members out there - I would greatly appreciate it if you can put my layout in your "watch list" for the week! It helps me get more traffic!
Thanks for looking!
