Both of these layouts were done using the same template. I did them for Janna's Template Challenge #15 over at KBandFriends. The template is a free download so check it out here. Janna said to think outside the box so I did on the second one. The first one is more like the original template.
Credits for my layouts are here.
I looked up American Goldfinch and the one I have pictures of is a male ready to mate. They are only this bright yellow during mating season. The rest of the time they are more greenish-grayish with some yellow.
And now for something completely different.
After reading comments on the use of "Ma", I'm curious about it. I'll have to see if I can do some research on it. I can say there were times when my mother did not appreciate the name. LOL! Especially when 4 grown kids used it as a nasal whine. Even as adults, kids know what buttons to push.
