We Got Chickens!

Ever since visiting Key West in 2005, I have been in love with the chicken.

If you haven’t been, wild chickens hang out on the streets of Key West. There is nothing more surreal than pumping gas at a city gas station while watching a chicken wander around the parking lot!

And so my fascination with chickens began …

For the past several years I have been trying to convince both my parents and my in-laws to get chickens. Despite my promises to help care for them, neither one gave in.

Then, we moved to the country and what was once a dream has become a very real reality.

I am know the proud mamma of six baby chicks and I created this page to mark the fabulous occasion. (Click on the image for a larger version)

I used papers from TPC, cardstock from American Crafts and some leftover ribbon to create this page. The flowers were made using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Tattered Flowers Die and the journaling block was made with a punch from EK Success. For the title, I used Ashlyn’s Alphabet and the Cricut. The gems are from Queen & Co.
