Hangin' Out

I was thrilled to get to make a scrapbook page this weekend!  And I had these great pictures of our granddaughter playing in our tree.  Then on Black Friday, I picked up these wonderful BasicGrey papers for less than half price.  It matched the pictures perfectly!

The page is made with the current sketch over at Stuck On U Sketches.  You can find the sketch here.  I made it into a two page layout because of the number of pictures I had, and the fact that it would have been hard to cut the pictures down.  I don't print my own pictures.  I upload them and have them printed at a local drug store.  I was happy with the way it turned out!

Here are the details:

Cardstock:  Wausau papers, Bazzill and Core'dinations
Patterned papers:  BasicGrey Origins
Border punch:  EKSuccess
Marquee Label:  I can't remember which Cricut cartridge I cut this from.  I had a hard time finding one to work.  If I figure it out, I will come back and post it.
Scalloped Circle Silhouette -- Mini Monograms with the framed feature at 9"
Branch:  I used my Creative Memories wavy cutter for this
Leaves:  Walk in my Garden Cricut cartridge at 1 1/4"
Monkey and Vine:  Create A Critter Cricut cartridge at 4 1/2"
Hangin' Out:  Sesame Street Sunny Day Cricut cartridge at 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" (for the word "Out")
Butterflies:  Martha Stewart and McGill punches
Label for Journaling:  Nestabilities
Gems:  Unknown -- from my stash

Here is the sketch:
