Birds and the Bees

This weeks challenge at lasting memories is all about the "Birds and the Bee's"
I know we haven't had that talk yet in this household, but I probably should seeing as I have 3 girls in the house.  Thankfully the oldest (soon to be 14) has no interest in boys what so ever. 
But this challenge isn't to document the talk, unless you want it to.  What we're asking for is for you to create a layout showcasing Bird or Bee or even both.
They can be the focal photo, theme or even embellishments.
I've done a bit of everything regarding bees and have two 2page layouts to share with you
First up is going buggy
My oldest girls did a school music performance where she dressed as a bee and sang
"Buzz, Buzz"- super cute song by the way.
So here's both pages
I used a photo of the stage for the title. 
All the  bees on the page are oval cut photos with circles for wings and hand cut antenna
Second page with journaling
close up of my little queen bee

For my second bee layout
I journaled the night hike turned bee disaster

the 2 pages together

Photos of us setting out on the hike.  I don't have photos of the aftermath as several of the girls had to strip down to their underwear to get all the bees off.
The little bee in the middle of the page is a Girl Scout patch from the bee a reader campaign. 
 I gave each of the girls one as a badge of honor for surviving the bee attack.
the second page is all journaling and the cute bee embellishment.
I worked the whole layout around the border, which I got it a while back from my CM consultant.

love this little cutie from create a critter cartridge

To bad the real bees weren't so cute.

Hope you get busy like a bee and join us for the "birds and the bees" challenge
