Spread Your Wings And Fly.

Good morning.

I'm definitely looking forward to some 20 degree temperatures today if the weather forecasters get it right.......bout time too I'd say!

It's time for another Two Scrapbook Friends DT Kit reveal on here today, this time using one of the recent Amy Tangerine collections 'Yes Please'.

I created two layouts for this line and the first came together pretty easy, straight forward, nothing out of the ordinary.  The second.......not so much so I'll reveal that another time when I can face it (still not a huge fan you see!)

Anyhow, today's works for me so here we go:

Spread Your Wings And Fly.

I have to fess up regarding the photo......my girls were playing on a wooden boat shaped play structure, and decided to strike the pose like the character from Titanic.

However using the title 'Posing On The Edge Of The Boat Like The Girl From Titanic' just didn't seem to cut it, so after a little photo editing IE cropping out most of the boat and adding a little white veneer to the edges, the title 'Spread Your Wings And Fly' seemed much more appropriate!

I was fortunate enough to be given a second sheet of the background paper so I cut out the clouds to use as extras on this page.  The kite was made by cutting triangles from various patterned papers, and the tail is 3 strands of bakers twine, braided together.

I used another strip of paper a little more like ribbon, to give the impression of movement, and this kinda relates to my LO and challenge issued here, to use your paper as more of a focal embellishment.

Finally, I used a couple of pins from Jillibean Soup and a sticker to anchor things down.

One last thing I almost forgot......I did get to try out one of my new stitching templates (also from Amy Tangerine) which conveniently had a feather image in there.....ties in with the theme nicely.

And that's all for this one.

I'll be back tomorrow for some Little Red Wagon goodness as it's my turn to play host......guess I'd better make something first!

See you then,



A fantastic page Jayne!! Love the stitching and the what you did with the ribbon!


Simply awesome Jayne! WOW.... and lots of inspiration too. The page seems to "fly - or float" (probably since there is kinda of boat involved LOL). Absolutely gorgeous.


Love the freedom of this page! I sat out on my porch for coffee time this morning...you are right about the great weather!!!


Fabulous layout. Love the paper ribbon.


Fantastic page Jayne - just perfect for the photo! Love it!
