Each day is a gift - create special memories with it!!

This is one of my favourite projects I must say...Made this lovely garden page with a bird house.
The fence is definitely an inspiration from the beyound grey challenge. The birdies looking at each other, cute, are'nt they?

The bird house is a cutout from a paper bag. I love the tree on which the bird house is sitting..I was thinking of using paper stip or ice cream stick for it. But I wanted a real 3D effect. Me and my baby were out in the garden over the weekend, out of the blue this beautiful twig caught my attention..viola! I got my stem for the bird housie :)
I wanted to make the vine, just the way it has come out..perfect, isnt it! ;)

ok enough of bragging!!!
The photo can be changed, got this idea from a dear blogger friend Indira.
I used paper piecing, quilling in this project. I made a frame of handmade paper to give it a compelte look. Thanks K Jo for the lovely paper!
P.S The photo marks the home coming of my daughter..yeh the little one is in my arms..not very visible, I was the happiest day of my life!
Sorry for posting soo many pics..but I think I cant get enough of it :)
