Whimsical Wednesday Challenge

Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #3 - Spring Has Sprung in our Homes

Hello and welcome to another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge! Just in case this is your first one, we have a challenge every week with each one staying open for two weeks. The first Wednesday of each month will be a Scrapbooking Challenge. We have a lot of fun challenges and prizes coming up, we would love for you to  play along!

This weeks theme is: "Spring has Sprung in our Homes" - Create a Home Decor project with a spring theme.
(no cards this week)

I chose to do a wall hanging for my project. I have always loved bird houses so I decided to use 3 of them from different cricut cartridges. I think I will keep this hanging on my door throughout the entire spring!

Oh, Cathryn, I have scrolled and re-scrolled FOUR times ogling over each bird house and the two cute birds in the nest. This is a beautiful home decor project. I am inspired! Now I need to get a towel and wipe off the drool on my keyboard :)
