The BIRD,BIRD,BIRD...is a GIRL!!!!

DAY FOUR of ACCOUNTABILITY.....and this layout is LATE!....beeeeeeecause...this should have been posted yesterday....but, it just wasnt working for me....and I had to re-do ( has that EVER happened to anyone else?)...Thank goodness nothing was glued down!...ANYHOO....there is quite a funny story behind this layout.....Three Christmases ago, I was surprised by this sweet gift of CHIP..a cockatiel....named so, because at that time I was so WAY into MOSAICS ( broken dishes....chips, etc...get it?).....Altho, now the name STILL works, because of my papercrafting obsession including CHIPBOARD!....Soooooo....not really knowing one way or the other CHIP's sex....we have just called HIM a HE for the past three years....UNTIL...this past wednesday ( after a fierce storm) when I looked into "his" cage and WHAT TO MY WONDERING EYES SHOULD BE there....but, two eggs!!!...OH MY!.....I FIRST called hubby at work...and inquired if he was "goofing" on me and had he put ANYTHING in Chip's cage???.....No.....WHY?....well, this has become just a wonderful LIFE experience ( since I failed Science 101!!!).....Hubby looked it all up on the net...supposedly when Cockatiel's are feeling very safe in their environment...they "mate" with whatever is close ( hm...must have been the fun bell toy!)....and since it was "rainy season" ( in the wild...better to feed the babies with)...He/SHe, dropped a couple of eggs!.....Honestly...a real "star in the east moment".....So, the net says to leave the eggs for a couple of days...but, to remove them and MAKE THE CAGE different(uncomfortable)....so Chip will not drop a couple more.....and "deplete her calcium levels".
OK!!!....so,....I PRINTED MY OWN pictures on my HP ( a FIRST!!)...and using SU LeJardin ( what could be better??), and A Little Birdie told me stamp set....with a few assorted rouge embellies, here is the layout!
Beeeeeeeeee sure to check back for MORE accountability layouts...gotta catch up for TODAY!!
Thanks so much for visiting...please leave a comment & let me know what you think!
Creative blessings,

I love this page - great colors - love the brads and buttons - using two different kinds of paper with the ribbon as a visual divider - ADN creating your own embellishments - just awesome!
