Life Is Sweet

Hi you all :)
For this layout is from LOAD 13: Story: Tell us something that you think others find annoying about you & why they are wrong! Product/technique: Use a direct quote as your title Image: A special pet. I had already used a special pet layout already with being silly with Buddy so this layout came about from the inspiration picture that we always get with the written prompts:
and this is the inspiration photo:
I went with a bird theme for my layout. I also used the October sketch over at Memory Nest for my layout inspiration: Make it Monday No. 48:
 I decided I wanted to use some stamps on this layout. I added the stamps to my counterfeit kit to purposely use them, so they got used. With 2 of them I was able to come up with a fun title for my layout.
 Lots of fun photos, papers, veneer birds and glittery hearts took over the layout.
 My journaling states about me enjoying playing with my new camera. Also my love of birdwatching in the winter time. I could never get good pictures of the birds with my camera, but my new camera changed all that! I took these pictures from inside the house through the window while drinking my coffee.
I added this pink stripe paper to my LOAD kit that week and thought I would use it right away and this layout did work for it. I added stickers for to make that edge longer to represent on the sketch.
Now about the LOAD prompts: I've done a story about my pet, so the parrot helped me choose my topic with my love of birdwatching. What people find annoying about me sometimes is I'm always pulling out the camera to capture that special moment (some people just don't get into it I guess) but if I didn't use the camera that much I wouldn't get beautiful pictures like this. (Story: Tell us something that you think others find annoying about you & why they are wrong!) This is why I live for myself and not others :) Hey you all have a great rest of the day today :)
