Early Bird Layout using 2 different paper lines

    So glad to see this week's challenge on PPC about foods from different countries!! I have so many pictures to scrap with that kind of theme!! Here are photos I snapped of the divine breakfast. The Bed and Breakfast we stayed at in Italy called Florence Chic! If you are ever there I recommend you stay! Also, notice the delicious desserts on the breakfast tray? They are homemade by the owner's mother each day!! Most often, we were the only ones there so I felt guilty if I didn't "indulge" because I didn't want her feelings to be hurt! HA!

Layout: Using 2 different paper lines that seemed to coordinate, I managed to piece this together seamlessly. The left page is Bo Bunny Trail Mix Collection from Field Journal, and the right Kaiser Kraft Hunt and Gather from Watch.  Don't they seem to just match perfectly?
    The flowers are from die cutting fabric with a Sizzix Bigz die and glued together with a glue gun. Centers are buttons from my stash. Also, added black tulle to imply leaves. On the left page, the birdcage is die cut with American Craft Pow, glitter paper. The title,"Early Bird" was cut using a font from the computer. Photos are double matted and placed side by side. The coffee cup is made on my Cricut Explore which I love!! All edges are distressed with Clearsnap ink, Chestnut Roan.
