Great Gift layout for a Funday Friday challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) I hope you have had a great week this week :) If you have stopped over looking for the Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style challenge you can find that post here

Happy Friday to you :) It's Funday Friday and Today over at Jo's Scrap Shack our challenge is Always Anything Goes. Our sponsor this week is Little Blue Button Stamps. I dug into a stash of bits and pieces looking for one of the printables that I may have on hand and found 2 that I added to the clustering on this layout:
When I was looking through my photos to use for the art pieces I came across these photos from early in the year and they spoke to me for this layout :) So went looking for some papers to use for the layout I come across some in an older counterfeit kit: from my April counterfeit kit: Spring Flings and Easter Things. The background paper came from my 100 Pattern Paper challenge pile, been trying to get into this pile more often lately so I can get that conquered before the end of the year.
For my layout inspiration I used a sketch over at Sketch N Scrap's July crop on facebook:
No automatic alt text available.
Rotating it just once to work with my photos. Love the layering on this sketch and was able to use some scraps on it too.
 The title for the layout it was a great gift I got for Christmas from my brother and his wife :) The bits and pieces came from the stash bowl that I got the art printables from.
 When I first put out the gift for the birds, using the printable and a few punched out hearts
 The other printable I added to the 2 photos here at the bottom of the layout. The hello actually came from this month's counterfeit kit in the ephemera pack. Thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creations for this fun challenge.
