To BEE or not to BEE! Layout

Click here to enter Doodle Pantry Aug Digital Challenge 49.
Click here to see Flyin Hi DP DT Card.

Created this Bee scrapbook layout using Cricut cartridge Pooh & Friends and a sketch which you can see below.

I used Echo Park Bee's Knees cardstock that I had won some of awhile ago and then bought some since I liked it so much. Used scissors to cut out 2 hexagon shapes from the cardstock for top right & I used Fiskars small hexagon punch to punch out a Bee in top right.

Stamped sentiment with stamp set from Cardz TV that I won recently.

I have photographed Bees in my backyard & other places and will put this in my scrapbook with those photos.You can see some of my Bee photos below.

Bees I photographed this yr in the Spring 
on the BlueBonnets in my backyard.
