For the hop today, I've created a beautiful LO of my kids, my parakeets. Blu, my oldest died last year. I had her 14 years. I just got my 2 newest ones as a present in April. I named them Leo and Bucky.

Well, now on to my LO.

Here is the main supplies I used.

Here is my finished project. Nothing spectacular was done.Simple yet sweet.

I cut my photos out with "imperial" decorated scissors. I placed the photos on top of some old doilies. I then took my stickles and went around the edge of doilies with matching color of bird, so I used blue, green, yellow. I had a package of adhesive backed chipboard letters and there was no name on them, I had no idea what I was saving them for so I used them as my title. The double layer flower came from the same set. I took my dyna label maker to print out the names and stuck them next to there pictures. 

Here is a close up of each bird. 

Blu - 14 years old

Leo - 11 months

Bucky - 11 months

Hope you enjoyed checking out my kids. Now hop on over to the scrapbooking queen


  1. Your birds are great! We used to have parakeets and canaries when I was a kid. They are fun pets. I love the doily idea which was only made better when you added the bling of stickles!!

  2. Cute birdies!! I love how your layout looks like a big birdhouse and the birds are in the doorways (at least to me it does)!!!

  3. How "TWEET"! Leo & Bucky looked like they are going to be spoiled with love & care. Your layout is terrific & the color choice is beautiful. I love that they look like they are standing at the doorway ready to go. Sorry to hear about Blu.

  4. Your parakeets are beautiful. Love their bright colors. Great layout.

  5. Parakeets remind me of my old parakeet. I miss her. I didn't think they could live as long as yours did. Mine only lived for about 6 years.

  6. I love it, I use to have 2 birds when I was younger they are so much fun to talk to and mine use to whistle. Great job!!

  7. You have beautiful kids! Love your layouts. :)

  8. Very pretty LOs. Your birds are beautiful.

  9. your little birdies are so adorable. In the UK we call them budgerigars or budgies for short as parkeets look different - maybe its a UK USA thing !!
