Birdsong ...

Hi there ...
Whilst visiting some of my favourite blogs ... I followed a link that Kirsty put on her blog to a scrap challenge at Scrap - It - Lah ... where the challenge is to make a scrapbook page based on your hobby ... and include something on the page to do with this hobby ... Well, I have wanted to scrap this picture for ages ... just because it is special to me ... I love wildlife and love to watch the birds everyday ... First thing even before I get dressed I am out to feed them ... and having had cats ... I have saved many birds and creatures in my time ... This particular bird a Coal Tit ... I came across one morning when we were staying in a log cabin in Derbyshire ... it was lying on the decking and I thought it was dead ... probably hit the glass window ... But not not one to give up I cradle it for a long time and it sparked back to life ... and then seemed very reluctant to go ... just kept clinging to my finger looking at me ... it was a privileged moment ... 




Now I have to confess that after searching through my papers for over 2 hours to find just the right thing ... I came across this from Memory Keepers ... which already had the title and mat for the picture ... But it was just so right that I had to use it ... I added some more border, doily, flower, button and both the little birds ... I glittered some chipboard letters too and matted my photos onto card that the prima flowers come on ... 
you may be wondering what I was looking at on this photo ... well we also had a squirrel come to see what the fuss was ... 





I hope you are having a great day ...
Till soon

Love the colours that you created with, my favourite combo (the greens and aquas) and I have a whole section of these colours of papers in my paper stash! You selected so well, and that title :)

Oh Ros, that picture of you and the bird is awesome! I can so imagine you wanted to 'do' something with it! Well, you succeeded all right! Your papers even match your sweater, LOL!
