BBTB2: Cricut - Backyard Chicken Coop

This week on BBTB2, our challenge leader is my long time blogging friend, Caroline, from Card Creations By Caroline.   We are to create a layout, project or card with a cut from our Cricut of a bird.  That can be a peacock, a wild bird, a cartoon bird, an owl, or in my case - CHICKENS!   Link up your bird related project to our Linky on the Bitten by the Bug2 blog this week.  We love to see you spread your wings and create!!!  (haha)

My 'Birds of a Feather' layout features my grandkids a year or so ago when their dad first built a chicken coop.  It's really hard trying to photograph these chickens - they just didn't smile for the camera.  But the kids did.  They love their chickens, even more, they love the eggs.    I actually had planned more Cricut cuts to go on this layout, but it just didn't work - the background is busy and some of them were lost.  Sometimes, less is more - which is hard for me......  Cluck Cluck - have a great day!

Chicken:  50 States
Freshly Hatched Egg" Photo Fun - Celebrations
Wire background: Teresa Collins Basics
Chicken and Child: Nursery Rhymes
Feed Sack:  Old West (used pens in the Cricut)


  1. I think your layout is perfect in every way! I love the background and those fun pictures! You picked fabulous images for your layout. I have the same problem of putting too much on my layouts and they get pretty busy. The layout that I recently made of my puppy has not a spare inch, lol. Talk about busy. Oh well, I will enjoy the memoriess.

  2. Love that chicken! And your background is perfect too.

  3. The chicken wire background paper and overlay cut really add the perfect touches to your layout! Cute Cricut cuts and even cuter kiddos!

  4. I am late commenting, but I could not pass up this amazing layout. You are so creative. The chicken wire background is amazing and I adore the cuts from A Child's Year. But of course the photos really make this layout!!
