Owl Family- Die Cut challenge S.O.U.S

Hi fellow crafters...
Its another Friday reveal for us girls over at S.O.U.S and this week we have a die cut challenge for you.. Our Leah has chosen this weeks die cut and its OWL on any project..
I again played around with CCR and came up with this cute layout using one of my all time favorite cartridges: Create-A-Critter..  I love the cute little critters on that cart..  This is actually the first time I got to use the owl on one of my layouts, but I love how it they came out..

So, here is my take on the challenge:

I have a photo of my kids, hubby and myself I plan on adding to this layout as soon as my happy ass goes to the store to buy ink for my printer... LOL

How's about a few close ups:
The branch is from the BLOOM cartridge and the scallop square is from the ACCENT ESSENTIALS.

For the trees, I got the bark from POOH AND FRIENDS and then used GEORGE AND BASIC SHAPES to create the greenery.. the big tree is actually a heart turned upside down :)  Plus, my cute little owls.. 

The title OWL is cut from OPPOSITES ATTRACT and the word FAMILY is cut from HOME ACCENTS..  My Imagine wasn't cooperating with me and cut off a lot, but then my daughter said that the white showing on the word FAMILY  looked good, so I kept it instead of re-cutting it..
