Friday Mashup Sketchy Bird

Whew, I was so happy to see Friday approaching on the calendar! I was called in for jury duty earlier this week, and then I also started a special summer position at work, supervising a work crew of 4 teenage boys for 10 hrs a day, 4 days a week. If that doesn't make a person desperately want Friday to arrive then nothing will, LOL.

Its my turn again to host the Friday Mashup challenge and unlike my patriotic challenge, which sent everyone into hiding, I think this weeks is very simple and straightforward. All you have to do is use the sketch I provided, create a project that has a bird or  birds on it, or mash it up and create a project with the sketch that also incorporates birds. I just adore birds and I can spend hours in my backyard and around the area with my camera, stalking some birds and waiting for THE picture! Right now I've got a pair of tree swallows nesting in my yard and I just adore their beautiful colors!

Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup blog, the rest of the design team came up with some awesome projects this week, I just love them all! Play along with us and show us what you've got this week!
