Owl love you forever!

This month at So Artful Challenges they ask crafters to create something with an owl in it. Hooray!
Since I'm still working on our wedding scrapbook I thought a page about our nieces and nephews would go well with an owl. I chose a patterned paper broken into quarters by We R Memory Keepers called Nonsense Silly Sally because I wanted to sit an owl on one of the branches. But that was the only part of the paper that went with my color scheme so I cut it out and saved the rest for another project. Keeping with the quadrant layout I added a navy blue piece to the bottom half and a pink pp from K&Company called Berry Sweet to the top.

I added everyone's name with my Dymo label maker, and white cardstock to mat 2 photos into Polaroid-esque pictures. The silver letters at the bottom say "Nephew Swap" since Corey's dancing with "my" nephew and I'm dancing with "his."

Which left the owl. I decided to use this price tag that came on something I bought but it wasn't the right color. I just wanted to change the red to pink. I scanned it, printed it, and cut it out to make a pattern which I traced onto the pink pp. I cut it out and glued the pieces over the original. I also added a tiny flower sticker for our owl friend to hold so she wouldn't feel left out of the wedding.
I added foam alphabet stickers by Sandylion. Can you tell I ran out of Os and Es?

I didn't really believe we've been married for 14 years, but looking at these pictures makes me realize it's true. 2 of these kids are married, 1 with a kid, 2 of these kids are in college, 2 already have degrees, and 1 is in the military. Maybe I should have made the title "Time Flies." Ha!

P.S. Only 6 pages to go!

This is delightful, I love how you have repurposed the tag! Only 6 pages to go, congratulations. I did my wedding album at the request of my daughter, after I was divorced! haha! How weird is that? It was about 145 years later as well. Thank you for sharing your wonderful owl with us for our Soartful Challenge!

What a nice mom! She probably loves looking at those pictures.

Thank you both for your kind words!
