B is for boy and his bugs...

Hi everyone!!!  Happy Monday!  Today I have a layout I did using some of Creative Cuts & More's die cuts..  I used 2 of the Hinge No. 04 in Whitestone - Neenah Smooth.. 
Here's a close up of both hinges...
Top one...

bottom one...
I used my Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder on both hinges and then I rubbed some Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa and sponged around the edges... Added little copper brads, to the holes that were already punched for me...  For once I got something straight!!!!! lol  Love the way these turned out...

I also used Pia's June Sketch over at Practical Scrappers for this layout...  You still have a few days left to get yours done and get it emailed!!  Wouldn't it be great if we featured your layout, how neat would that be?!!
Here's Pia's sketch...
Now, remember there's 2 sketches each month over at Practical Scrappers..  So be sure and check them both out over on their sidebar..

Okay let me get back to my layout!  This is little Grandson Colten, photos taken on April 10, 2011..  He is looking for bugs at Grandma's house and actually found a few...  All Grandma's got to say is that they better not end up in her house!!!  LOL  I had some of these cute 3-D embellies of bugs and thought they worked great on this layout...

This layout will qualify for a few other challenges out there....

Hi, Fern! I popped in to take a look at the card you have featured at PS .. wowzers .. wish I could do that level of work! I envy you great card-makers! So, anyway, this layout was an extra surprise.
