TGIF and Happy Thankful Friday! This week I'm thankful for hummingbirds. Specifically the hummingbird that has nested in our backyard. Oh my, the babies have hatched and it is nuts in our backyard. They are providing a lot of drama back there. Ok, I may be exaggerating a little, but there seems to be a lot of extra birds in our backyard since they hatched. Many seem to be on the hunt and others seem to be celebrating their birth. Mama hummingbird is on high alert protecting her babies! The females in our family have added our own script to what is happening outside. It's been quite entertaining.
What about you? What are you thankful for this week? Share in the comments - I'd love to hear all about it!

Happy Friday! I completely forgot to do a TGIF post last Friday - sorry. It was a busy weekend with Easter. It started with my granddaughter's softball game and just never stopped.

Sketch n Scrap posts two different layout and two different card sketches a month. It's hard to choose which one I want to work on but I knew this one would work well with a new flower stamp I recently purchased from Altenew.

The truck, tree and Santa were combined in Design Space and then flattened so I could print & cut it out. I duplicated the truck first so it can have a 3D effect.
Please watch the video and see how easy this process really is!

When I saw this sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it! I decided to make an overlay using my Cricut for the first page of our Zion National Park photos.
- I used the back of an ugly paper for the overlay and sponged three different tones of blue and one green across the sheet of paper. This is a great way to use those ugly one sided papers especially when they are heavyweighted!
- Dark Roast (brown) splatter was placed around the photos & embellishments as well.
- Cut a small piece of patterned paper and placed it behind the title and cut a strip to place along the top.
- The little cluster on the top right is a piece of scrap green paper with a quote.
- The mountain scene was cut with the Cricut as well. After gluing it together, I placed it on the bottom.
- The overlay is 11.5x11.5 and resting on a piece of woodgrain paper.

I also created the tags with my Cricut. Now I need to fill them! I just bought a bag of jelly beans and chocolate and I need to get rid of them quick or else I'll eat them all!

I've got a lot of photos to scrapbook of our road trip to Zion and down to Tucson. The photos are amazing and I'm so excited to see them again and relive the trip.
I'm using a two page sketch from the Stick It Down challenge site to create this quick layout. I love sketches that can hold many 4x6 photos and this two page spread holds six!
I also filmed a process video mostly to show how I created the three clusters. If you subscribe to my YouTube channel, Dorlene Durham, you know that I created a kit of papers and embellishments to scrapbook my hiking photos and that's where I pulled all of the products.
Here are some close ups:
