I have pulled out one of the cutest and memory filled stamped set in the Occasions Catalog for today’s project.  At least it brings back memories to me.  I am a big reader, and I was even as a young child.  Apparently as soon as I learned to read I was hooked.  Have you guessed which stamp set it is?  It could just be me, but the Fable Friends set reminds me of the Fables I read as a child.  So of course I could not wait to play with these cuties.


Fable Friends, 148670


The duck is closer to the fables I read, but I could not resist this little squirrel.  It looks like he is bringing a flower to a friend and is all dressed up to do it.  How sweet is that?

This layout is a great way to use leftover designer paper scraps.  I played around with the way to lay them out.  I began with large , medium, small moving to the right.  That just didn’t do it for me.  So I tried this and loved it.  Your pieces could easily be all the same size or as I did.  I hope you will give it a try.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return on Monday for a new project.  Hopefully your weekend will be a good one.
