Courage Layout for Bird is the Word

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” 
― E.E. Cummings

Thought I'd play along with Bird is the World before their challenge is over and found this quote to match this photo of my kids and niece/nephews up on Whiteface Mountain. 

Had so much fun with this page with the colors and the little feathers I painted up for down the side!

Here is a cross section so you can see the little old pearls I have hidden under the banner flap. (Thanks Helen for the idea!!)

Happy Friday!
