Hello everyone!!! I was playing around with some of my Taylored Expressions dies and came up with this fun little scene. 

I used Summer Lovin dp by Catra Bella for the background....the clouds were cut using the TE Cloud Duo die set and the grass was cut with the TE Build a Scene - Rolling Hills die.  The TE Birch Tree Cutting Plate was used to cut the trees out of Chocolate Truffle card was adhered over the clouds and rolling hills. The nest, birds, and eggs were all cut with dies from the TE Bless Your Nest set and the sentiment from the Welcome Home stamp set was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on the Sugar Cube card stock and cut with a Label Stacklets 9 die.  The black pearls were added for the birds eyes and beaks were cut out of a scrap of yellow card stock. 

Thanks for stopping by...I'm going to head out early to the grocery store this morning. Not many people shop early so I may have the store to myself!!! I hate to fight the crouds and wait in line....I'm not a very patient person, I'm afraid!! 

Have a great day!!!!
