Ducks, Geese, Fish, Dogs and cards

We had such a wonderful weekend! I came home from work on Friday and just new that we needed to spend the weekend outside. Thought of camping but since you need to book campsites weeks if not months in advance that was out of the question. So what to do? I found myself on-line in search of someplace new that would be fun for the whole family but didn't cost an arm and a leg to get in. We found ourselves on Saturday morning at a bird sanctuary, wow what a fun place! There were ducks and geese everywhere, even some cranes. The kids each had a bag of seed and I felt like the pied piper with the ducks, they would just follow along, I am not sure why since there was seed everywhere. Great walking trails as well, we had a such a great time!







On Sunday we had Rorys brothers family over for a bbq and took off to a local park for another walk, again a great day out. It was too funny, our dog decided half way through the walk that she was done, plopped herself down and wouldn't move, well sorry Peanut it doesn't work that way, get up and walk!!

The weekend ended with some crafting. I finished a few more layouts and some challenge cards as well.

The first card challenge I finished was for Clean and Simple (http://www.cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com/)

this is the sketch and my take on it:






The second card challenge finished was for Sweet Sketch Wednesday (http://www.sweetsketchwednesday.blogspot.com/)

It really looks like a beautiful place. Yeah, ducks will follow you anywhere...when they have been around people. Glad you had a fun day! Great take on the sketch for SSW. I really like how you popped your image. Such a cute penquin! Thanks for joining us!
