Meet Joel & Julia

These were the two big birds that hung out outside our building when we were in Orlando.
They were taller than Louis.
To start with we were scared of them. Expecting them to chase us like geese would, but instead they were the sweetest pair that just went about their own business and were always together.

The kids named them Joel and Julia and made up stories about them being married.
It was so sweet on our last day as we were getting ready to leave we heard this noise outside. We looked over the balcony and it was Joel and Julia calling us to say goodbye : )

I was looking forward to documenting these two.
We hope to go back to Orlando next year. It would be so good if they were still there.
I used my Cocoa Daisy 'Pemberley' kit.
And I also made this for the 'Designers Choice Challenge' over at Cocoa Daisy.
I set the challenge to use this colour combo on your LO's.
You can view the challenge here if you fancy playing along. It runs until Tues 29th Feb and the winner gets a $10 voucher to spend in the Cocoa Daisy Store.

I used some Dylusions paints on this page. I really miss those paints. I loved the round tubs they came in. I did think after making this LO that the white paint on the title looked a little like bird poo!!

I also used a Cocoa Daisy stamp here. The round ones with arrows.
And my journaling below.

Thanks for stopping by today xxx
