Hoppy Birthday Frog Layout


The other day someone somewhere shared a layout done with frogs that said "Hoppy Birthday."  I'd seen that saying on cards for bunnies and frogs, but it made me smile and I thought it might be a fun layout to do for my husband's birthday.  Men's pages and things aren't my specialty.  I like cutesy so.....I thought these cute little frogs would make a nice manly birthday page and still be kinda cutesy for me.  LOL.  I like how they turned out.  I love these little frogs and have had them cut for quite a while.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but....I like frogs and so I had to make them.  I still have a couple left, but I've been able to use them on a few projects here and there.  I always cut several cuts when I do something and then I just hold onto them and use them on whatever comes up....cards, layouts, etc.  That's my secret to how I put so many cute little paper piecings on each layout is because I'm pulling from my stash and just adding them to it.  Then each page can have more than one paper piecing without taking days to complete them.  Yeah!
