ABC day at Catch the Bug!

Hi, everyone!
It's an ABC (Anything But a Card) Day over at Catch the Bug, and it's my turn to create something! :0) I always have a difficult time coming up with projects for ABC Day, but I recently started working on a scrapbook project, so this page definitely qualifies!  :0)
You may recall a couple other pages I've showcased in the past few months for this same scrapbook I'm working on for my sister and niece. My goal is to have a full book of pre-made pages for her to add the photos to done by Christmas!

This is a double layout using the Bugaboo Stamps image, Baby Cow - Moon.

It is noted in the Bugaboo Stamps Terms of Use that creating die-cuts without express permission is not allowed. ALL MY PAPER PIECED DIE-CUTS WERE CREATED WITH PERMISSION! 

I have included some photos below, closer of each page.

I changed the digi stamp to an svg in my eCal program so I could cut and paper-piece.
There is a ton of inking and outlining done on the cow! Phew!
I created the title, mats and layered clouds in eCal, as well (not from an image).
When making premade paages, I always make sure that embellishes that overlap the photo mats are attached to the page with pop-ups, and that the pop-ups are located so that the photo can still slide into place properly on the mat. My mats on this layout are 4-1/2", so up to a 4-1/4" photo will fit fine, but I'm hoping my sis uses a 4" square on them so you can still see the pretty pink hearts - the hearts on the paper are a beautiful gloss! :0) (I will be adding post-it photo size suggestions to the page covers for sis to work by before I send it to her. I'd hate for her to have to measure every photo mat in the book!).

So, that's it for me today! I hope you like what you see! 
If so, please consider following me! ========>>
