Scrapwest Challenge - Birds of a Feather


Another week another challenge - I will have to start paying somebody to feed me at this rate :0) This was a nice challenge and I could have done lots of different things for it but I love the Robin, the morning of my wedding I woke up to find one at the end of the bed, the little thing stayed in the lodge with us for 3 full days and only flew away when we left so I had to use a robin somewhere. This is a circle folded in half and then quartered. The bottom half has 2 extra folds in it. I have used BG papers, Sabrina's now famous vintage book with a little bird poem, some distress inks, fibres and feathers and a decoupaged robin.

Oh Carrie I'm only seeing this now. I love the story about the robin. I love robins and when I was small my Mum used to tell me that they worked for Santa and would report back if I did anything bold, I believed every work of it LOL
Seriously though my friend Kitty has a strong belief everytime she sees a robin that it's her Mum (RIP) sending her a sign that she's watching over her, her Mum loved robins too and it's very comforting for her. She has a few strange stories of things that happened.
I love them because they're so tame.
I love what you've done on your SW entry. It' gorgeous as always :-)
