Hi. Just a quick blog. This month Archiscraps Challenges has featured an amazing bridge, shaped like a dragon Their criteria was to use an animal either In the photo or as an embellishment.
With this in mind, I've  used  3 photos from probably the quietest tawny youngling  we've  had in the garden.

This little one was quite content to snuggle up between tree branches and just watch inquisitively from time to time. I've distressed the edges of the paper by tearing, inking and popping in some scraps of paper under some of the rolled sections. The only other embellishments are a chipboard tree, heat embossed in a soft grey/green, and some bronze-coloured metallic leaves.
There's still a little time remaining to enter the challenge, so pop on over to have a look at their amazing bridge ans the layouts completed by the DT members. You'll find them at: archiscraps.blogspot

Cheers for now,
