In April Matt and I went to the Poteet Strawberry Festival, which advertises itself as one of the oldest, most popular events in Texas. It was a real surprise to us how big this event was! Honestly, it was a little too big (and hot and sweaty) for me to tell you it was awesome. Oh well. But one thing we did enjoy was feeding the budgies. You buy a Popsicle stick covered in birdseed and enter their cage, where they descend upon you to eat. It was great to see them up so close.
We took turns feeding the birds so we could each take photos of the other. The bright colors made me want to break out the American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook papers and die cuts and make a page.
Got Sketch is celebrating its 5th anniversary and is holding an anniversary challenge that includes using: their 5-photo sketch (#142), 5 patterned papers and 5 clustered embellishments. Here’s what I’ve done with it:

Janice what a fabulous layout. I love the bright orange birdhouse and polka dot leaves. These are such great photos of you feeding the budgies and I definitely agree the papers are perfect for your layout. . It looks like the budgies were fairly well behaved. We have a Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast where you can feed the rainbow lorikeets, and all the ads show them landing on your head …..lol

Thanks, Danie! Yes, the budgies didn’t mind us at all and were well-behaved. All they cared about was being fed! They really are beautiful little things. The rainbow lorikeets must be pretty mild mannered, too, if people are OK with them on their heads. 🙂
