Exploring Cricut Challenge #9 - Cricut 1, 2, 3

Hi Guys! Did you all have a nice weekend? It sure flew by didn't it. Today is "challenge day" at Exploring Cricut. The challenge is called Cricut 1, 2, 3.  Use at least 1 ribbon, 2 Cricut Cuts, 3 buttons, brads, jewels in any color or theme. I chose one from Cindy Loo and Straight from the Nest. These were taken last spring of these cute little babies. We had at least 3 nests that birds were trying to build in trees or around our home. It was kind of funny. One robin family was trying to be inside our front porch and my husband kept going out and removing it. I can't really blame him as it was quite messy if you know what I mean. This bird was determined to be by our porch and she built her nest right on the outside for the world to see. It really was a great location for us because we were able to watch the birds be fed and learn to fly. I'm hoping we get lucky again this year too:)

The Bird Lover in me likes your layout & photos. I had the pleasure of seeing & photographing a Robin family from the 3 eggs, hatched with eyes not opened, being fed, eyes opening & even seeing them fly out of the nest. I posted 2 of my Robin layouts on my blog.

Hi Annette, what a delightful layout. I just painted a little birdhouse tonight but I didn't make it, not that talented. Thanks for sharing your talent. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
