The first Weekly Challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog is to make a card, layout, home decor project, etc. using the French Manor cartridge. You must use at least two cuts from the cartridge and add some bling (pearls, jewels, etc. Below is my entry for the challenge. The "Amore" is from the tag2 and tag2 shadow features. The border at the bottom of the card is also a cut from French Manor. I added rhinestones to the border for some bling. The paper and the fabric sticker inside came from Paperwishes.com.

With the completion of my 13th layout, I am now 1/4 of the way to my goal of 52 layouts this year. And, it's not even the end of March yet. I'm actually ahead of schedule for a change. I just wish it didn't take me so long to figure out what paper I'm going to be using. I'm lucky to complete 1 layout during the weekend. Maybe I should gather all my photos, paper that I want to use, embellishments, etc. and plan my pages ahead of time. Then I can just whip them out and get several done in a weekend!

We bought a new bird feeder over the MLK holiday and the birds just love it. Lots of Black-Capped Chickadees and Bluejays (not to mention the squirrels) have visited. Yesterday, I saw a bird I've never seen around here before so I took a picture. It took George and I a while to figure out what it was from the bird books but we finally came up with.....a Red-Bellied Woodpecker! Supposed to be a rare bird for this area, it's more prevalent south of here. We took several pictures and some videos and I will be scrapping the pics at some point. We also have Downy Woodpeckers and Pileated Woodpeckers here. No pics of the Pileated Woodies, though. We never seem to have the camera handy when we see them!
