The clouds are punched with the scallop circle punch from Stampin' Up and then cut in half. I outlined the puffy part of the clouds with a brown marker to highlight them a little better.
The Trees are punched with the Double Photo Corner punch from Stampin' Up and then layered on top of eachother to create the "Tree top."

Everything else is cut by hand with paper cutter, craft blade etc. I had alot of fun puting this together. Normally, I would go right for my Cricut on something like this... but thinking outside the box and using punches was great.
I am also entering my layout into the "Fun In the Sun Ch." 9 over at Whimsical Wednesday . Besides showing "Fun in the Sun", you also have to include STAMPING on your layout. I have a couple stamps above and below 2 of the photos. "Way to go" and "Bee Happy."
Believe it or not... this was an almost 80 degree day. We headed for the Trees, Hills and the Falls! Our first hike with our kids that we didn't have to worry about Baby packs, Jogger strollers or complaining. :-) Lots of water, snacks and stops to check out everything around us. They made it 4 1/2 miles to the Mid-Falls point. We will wait a few years for the trek to the top. It's another 4 miles one way and very steep switchbacks.
All in all a fun accomplishing day and I am happy to share with you.
