Scrapping Everyday Miracles - Challenge 2

Hi all,

     So last night I worked on another layout.... just for fun! :) I decided to participate in challenge 2 over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles. The challenge was to incorporate a banner of some sort and to use the follow quote.

How blessings brighten as they take their flight. ~Young

I decided to create a 12X12 layout for this challenge. I wanted to document pictures my husband and I had taken of one of the barn swallow families we have living on our front porch. We were blessed enough to see one of the baby birds leave the nest and learn to fly!

I used this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.

(Click photos for larger view)

I used the quote as my title and then added some journaling. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today.
