Bird is the Word-Forever/ Counterfeit Kit

This layout was made based on the Forever challenge at Bird is the Word. I used their optional sketch at http://www.birdisthewordchallenge.blogspot.com/. I was able to use my April counterfit kit from http://www.counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.com/ to make this layout. I used the hospital bracelet as the memorabilia for the mini challenge. I love this picture of my grandson. It was taken when he first came home from the hospital and he and his parents still had their hospital bracelets on. I wish I had a picture like this from when my girls were born.

The hospital bracelet colors didn't match the layout, but overall the bracelet looks cute. I was very happy with the twine tied with buttons. I rarely use buttons on my layouts. I have tons of them since Fred and I used to work at the button factory, but I tend to be more of a collector than a user. I am working on changing that. Thanks for looking.
