Happy hens!

What a difference a week makes, the girls are now much more relaxed and run towards us when we go it to feed them. Their combs have started to darken in colour and there is signs of new feathers growing. We have been giving them a tonic in their food and will worm them this weekend. I love watching them but getting them to bed is an issue like No we're not going LOL as fast as I catch one and pop her in the hut turn round for the next the first has come back out again EXCEPT last night when it was raining and they took themselves in CLEVER girlies! AND have been digging the ground and eating grubs. Amazing how they start to adapt. Two eggs everyday !!! and they're getting bigger.

Dawn has asked me to announce the arrival of Grandson number two, Ollie born Saturday weighing 7lbs 9ozs and totally gorgeous, I've already had cuddles with him and Dawn is floating around on cloud 9.

Did this layout for the UKS weekly challenge set by the Urban Faeries.

Challenge was to use a monogram
Use a foreign element which I didn't manage
Use your favourite or complimentary colours
Tear or distress the paper
and scraplift a layout from the gallery.

My layout is scraplifted from Butterbee My hero.

The photo is of Marc taken in 1990 when he was 12, have used Basic Grey papers Archaic, BG buttons,title cut on Cricut, lots of sewing and the grid was made on PC and printed onto acetate.

Off to Papermaze crop tomorrow.
