Crafty Ann's #79 Birds/Animals

Just spent a lovely couple of nights down in York with my Mum, 3 younger sisters, my brother's wife and my niece. We arrived by train at lunchtime on Tuesday then spent the afternoon in the spa. Wednesday we shopped till we dropped - quite literally then had a meal at Jamie's Italian. Thursday morning we finished off the shopping before heading home on the early afternoon train shortly before all the bad weather set in. I was exhausted when I arrived home and very footsore!! I hope to catch up with everyone later today.

Another fortnight gone and it's time for a new challenge at  Crafty Ann's and this week we want to see all those birds and animals on your creations - no people allowed!

I've chosen to do a layout of Freya lying in the sun. I've used papers and elements from Sweet Sage, Rhapsody in Blue and Tempting Turquoise scrapping kits - these are all available from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop. All the digi kit prices have been reduced in the shop and are now 95p or less each - you get loads with each kit and they all work well together. Ann also has a couple of freebies available if you'd like to try before you buy.

This layout was produced in Craft Artist.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see Ann and the teams creations, you won't be disappointed.

Challenges entered:
Dream Valley Challenges - anything goes
Red Carpet Studio - famous movie pets
Simply Create - linky party #10
