Birds of a Feather

Hi there blog followers!!  Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!  I hope you get to eat some turkey this weekend! (On that note…do you KNOW how hard it is to do a Canadian Thanksgiving where I am, in the southwest USA??   Forget fresh turkeys.  Forget even whole frozen turkeys!  I have a Turkey Breast With Some Leg and Back Meat thawing right now and will be happy to have that much!  And if I want a pumpkin pie I’ll have to make it myself!  Which I will.  There might only be 3 of us left here this year, 4 with my brother who’s visiting, but we will have ourselves a Canadian Thanksgiving if we have to shoot us a bird to do it!  The upside is, we’ll do it all again in about 6 weeks time!)

I have a layout to show you today.  Of the birds who are missing from the nest this year, (who are all celebrating Thanksgiving with family up North).  But for whom I am ever so grateful.  They make me who I am, and my life is so much better, funner, funnier and infinitely more interesting, because of them!  And yes, the photo comes from DEEP in the archives!

I used the FabScraps Shabbylicious line from the Love Store.  The papers are so pretty and delicate and feminine and while it’s not something I reach for often, I LOVED using them for this layout.  I have a whole other project in mind for them as well…couldn’t get enough with just a layout!

The birds on the branch is a chipboard laser cut die from Blue Fern Studios.  I covered the top surface with embossing ink and then heat embossed with white emboss powder.  Love that enameled look for a bit of a change.

The feather…I found while out walking the other day.  I love the feather trend right now, but I love REAL feathers even more!
