Stalking nature with the camera...

Can be a relaxing thing.
Of course, it can also be an extremely irritating thing.
This episode, however, was pretty cool if I do say so myself!

My fluttery little friend, VERY stalkable. PLayed with me. seriously. Sat still and let me take pics on the back of the chair. Fluttered, landed, fluttered, landed. Multiple times. MIND games I tell you. This fluttery thing...landed on my head multiple times and then decided to land ON MY VIEWFINDER. Hey, THAT would have been an awesome picture - had someone actually been stalking the stalker and caught it. You'll just have to take my word for it. It HAPPENED and it was funny...hilarious in fact. Seriously. No lie. Why would I lie to you??

When you see this shot - do you see the same happy green heart that I did???

ONe of my new faves is to take pics of random stuff that looks like letters. You know, branches, gate locks, oddly shaped rocks....or wooden pallets stacked at just the right AAAAAAAngle?? (hahahaha - I know, I crack me up too - but I did get the *A*!!). I am wildly in search of the letter *S* which has escaped me once again.

Tell me you see either a cursive capital *E* kind of sideways-ish.....or a cursive *W*....

Okay - depending on perspective on this one --- the 3 holes can make an *L*....the two on the left of the tree can make a *B*...or just one hole for an *o*...allll about perspective!

(drum roll please) and the letter *A*!! :) blurrier than I'd like, but this ain't goin' anywhere any time soon ;)

Any scrapping this weekend? Nope. I DID, however, sketch a little - and my sketchbook is Bizarre (with a capital B because ... wow I shock me sometimes with weirdness). I'll share some of this later on this week.

Oh! Come to think of it, I did a scrap page on friday -- a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants lifts of Diana over on theMoments --- I was a bad player and neglected to play in her scrap game on thursday - then come to find out it was of one of MY layouts (ack!!). I did this as a peace offering of a sort - of one of her layouts, which I believe was to be lifted in May as a challenge. I used plain white CS, Ranger alcohol inks (in mister spray bottles!), watercolor paint, K&Co fabric, machine sewing, Thickers, yarn Recollections flowers (thanks LynniePoo) SO much fun and FABULOUS to have this LO outta my head (room for more hahhaha). My little G-force chicken as a 9 month old practicing her wave (I have to say that I called this the "george washington" picture forever because of the bonnet hahahahaha. sorry.) The 2 pieces were made by my Great Grandmother (thusly her Great-Great Grandmother), and were originally made for chicken-B when he was born. Looked to fru-fru for a boy, so I saved...then used wisely :)

SPEAKING OF CHALLENGES -- if you are in need of a place to participate in challenges, or even to have one of your own monthly?? you are welcome to come over to the Moments - as their DT is looking for a couple of DT members !! It's a BLAST!! :)
