The Runaway Bride

Kiwi, our budgie, managed to get out into open air last Saturday.
How sad, we never expected to get her back, even if we heard her on occations when her buddy, Fluffy, called for her. After all, she was just eight weeks old and not completely tamed yet.

The following Monday night I heard her again - the next morning she flew in the door in the living room. Oh happy day!

Title: A Taste Of Freedom
Journaling: The short version of the first two articles in this post

Here she is, happy in our walnut tre:

PP, rubons & cut out: Basic grey, Authentic croched doilie, flash card: October Afternoon, alphas: adornit and American Craft, Raw chipboard: Imaginarium Designs, calendar card: Jenni Bowlin,  canvas tags: Maya Road, clay bird: MyLittleShopOfWhimsey, Twine & paper tape: unknown 

This layout was made with this lovely sketch I found at the Pagemaps Blog. I have had some trouble with Mr Mojo, and this sketch was just what I needed to get me started. It was fun to finally pull out some old papers and a mix of embellies and just create!

Some close up shots:

Thank you for taking your time to stop by. I really appreciate it!

Tell me, have you ever lost and found any of your pets?

Helt utrolig at hun klarte seg så lenge og godt at hun kom tilbake!! Lekker layout også. I flyttinga nå fant jeg også frem en slik hekla duk, og den skal som din havne på papir:-)

Jeg mistet en gang katten min da vi kjørte fra nord-Norge til Oslo. Den ble borte ved Maja-vatn, og kom sendt med tog en måned senere...Veldig tynn, og livredd for å miste oss av synet igjen (sånn ca en ukes tid iallefall).

Ha en riktig god sommer!

VILKEN tur att pippisen tog sig hem till slut! det är så ledsamt när våra djur kommer på avvägar, men jag älskar lyckliga slut och gör en extra happy dance både för den läckra layouten och för att hon kom tillbaka! xoxo
