Bird is the Word Together Challenge & Layout Share

So Sunday saw a new challenge starting up again at one of my favourite sites - BIRD IS THE WORD!
The word on the streets this fortnight is TOGETHER - easy right?!

Can you see my title "Together" - on the photo? 
 It's a white rub-on & is quite clear in person but not so bright in this photo.

I used the gorgeous new Pink Paislee "Vintage Vogue" papers again for this one - 
with some spritzing with my new TA mist - Chalkboard - "Mauve" lous - over a Basic Grey lace paper.

I used the Vintage Vogue chipboard but added to it with some flowers (Prima & other) as well as that 
TO DIE FOR Melissa Frances plaster scroll {above}.

I got the pink roses at my local craft shop - already bunched together in a little sprig - they are sooo pretty!

I saved those 2 pussy-willow tufts from a little dried-flower bouquet that had seen better days & was heading for the bin.  (Sure Yvonne from "Do more with Less" will be impressed LOL)

I try, on every layout, to incorporate the date in somewhere, as it's so easy to forget & have to "guess" years later...

Gorgeous Martha Stewart Vine punch!

So head on down to Bird is the Word & get your challenge entry in.  

And you still have 12 days or so to get your YOU & ME {or Me & You!} entries in too :)

What a gorgeous family shot. Again, how do you get them to all pose?? Maybe it will come with age. At the moment there is always a tongue out or some bunny ears going on. I try for the silly photo first, then the serious photo.....still doesn't
Great misting and love that punched border.
