I've heard that Diane acquired a very cute new 'stampin up' owl punch (from Emma) about a day after I finished this layout, and if I can get my hands on that punch for a minute or so I would be willing to re-do this traditional paper layout, to include a punched owl!
In the mean time, here's the layout as it is at the moment, mixing b/w and colour photos of my youngest girl being very much herself. Always perched or balanced up high somewhere. Hanging or swinging, often upside down from a high branch somewhere. Yesterday at my parents house she was scurrying along the back fence which is a rendered concrete wall about 15cm wide. She was in a crouched position on her hands and feet, and the wall has a good 6 foot drop. We noticed her from our position inside the house, a small distance away, and my Dad says, "she looks like a ringtail possum scurrying across the wires". Does anyone else's kids have animal like tendencies??
