1 of a Kind

I just couldn't resist this cute paper by Sassafras Lass! I love the expression of the little creatures... and the one lowly blue bird who stands out among the crowd. I really wanted to dress up this unique little guy to make him stand out even more. I've had these fun googly eyes that I bought at my local craft store and was super excited that they fit perfectly! Then, I punched a small hole and slid a tiny blue feather in place.
I wanted to make a cool sentiment that really popped. So... I grabbed one of the 1 - 1/2" wooden discs that I had left over from one of my craft classes and inked the edges. Then, I topped it with a scrap of blue patterned paper. The #1 comes from Kim Hughes'
Number Fun set. I stamped the words "one of a" using Papertrey Ink's Simple Alphabet.

I just had to show you a close up of this little guy. Isn't he just THE cutest! LOL!
