Well, all of our Paper Piecing books are filled with wonderful, whimsical artwork.
Please enjoy this FREE pattern and album page idea straight from the book, Annie Langs 202 Paper Piecing Patterns. We thought youd like this sweet bumblebeehes great for kids pages, summertime photos, and so much more!
And an added bonus, scrapbook specialist LeNae Gerig created this layout using our little bee. Take a look!

For the album page:
patterned Paper Pizazz: black & white checks (Part not in database (may have been discontinued): #5910)
solid Paper Pizazz:

To make the page, LeNae cut down a sheet of check paper and centered it onto black so she could journal around the edge of the page. Notice how LeNae let the little bee overlap one of the photos slightlyits a nice way to lead the viewers eye to the photo.
I picked a black and white color combination for the bee and the background papers to contrast with Mias orange shirt and the flowers, says LeNae. It makes Mias photos stand out from the page.
Thanks for sharing with all the Paper Piecing Addicts out there, LeNae!
