A Bright New Year

It's challenge time at Scrapbooking Supplies R Us.  Take a look at this month's darling sketch:

This month The Sampler DT used the beautiful January kit, "A Bright New Year" to create LO's using this sketch.  Here's another picture of the kit:



This kit is just fabulous!  Love all the earthy colored papers and fun embellishments!  It really makes you want to start creating and gets your crafty mojo going for the new year! 

Here is my take on the sketch:


This is Big Red.  No doubt you can tell which one she is, hence her name.  She became great friends with my little chicken Black Gold last Summer.  So Black Gold decides to go and hatch some chicks.  Big Red started sitting in the nest next to her.  Big Red's eggs didn't hatch, but Black Gold's did.  Honestly I wasn't sure what to do, so I took them both off the nests at the same time and Big Red decided to play Nanny to Black Gold's chicks.  They both took care of them, watching them and teaching them to eat and play.  It was the cutest thing I've ever seen.  Big Red would let the little one's sit on her back and she would cover them to keep them warm.  So we decided the perfect name for her is "The Nanny".  And I thought in honor of all her hard work, she deserved a LO telling her story!
