Happy Friday! Hope the day is going well.
A Tale of Two Photo Shoots
Spent a little time on the beach yesterday morning and early evening. In the morning, there were 4 or 5 families having professional photos of their little ones taken on the boardwalk. All the kids were adorable and well behaved. The photo crew did an outstanding job. These shoots were a huge success. :)
In the evening, I attempted to get a do-it-yourself photo of me with our little pup. Let's just say our pup was a little more squirmy than the little kids. The one photo in which our little guy semi-cooperated, my head was cut off. While I laughed the entire time -- and there's a lot to be said for laughter, this photo shoot was not nearly as successful as the morning ones. We didn't quite get the blog photo I was hoping for. :(
This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to make a project featuring a chicken or, if need be, another bird. Well, there's not a chicken to be found in my on-the-road stash.
So, what's a girl to do? Go to her handy-dandy Stampin' Up! punch, of course. :)

original handwritten sentiment
I made the chick and rooster first, then the sentiment panel. I struggled with the card's design until inspiration hit to place the little rooster on top of the sentiment.
The one thing I'd change is the handwritten aspect of the sentiment. Unfortunately, there aren't any other options here. Should I decide to send this to Operation Write Home, I'll have to replace the sentiment.
What really pleases me these last few weeks is that I've found a way to enter several challenges -- including this chicken challenge -- by going to my mini-stash and making it work. Tim Gunn (of Project Runway fame) would be so proud!

until the 21st.
Still have some masculine birthday cards to finish for OWH. Images and sentiments have been stamped. Just need to get around to assembling the cards themselves. Maybe tonight?!
As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
