    No, this isn't nearly as cute as the "Puppy Dreams" or kitty cat ("You're an Animal"). I doubt this one will get any votes in the contest. I just wanted to do something colorful. I can't post the picture I worked from because it doesn't belong to me. The background is a Laurel Burch fabric.

    Really cute, and I would say it's a winner!!!

    As far as posting photos...if you are posting a photo, and you are not trying to profit off of it, isn't that okay? Perhaps not, I'm not clear on those rules.

    Well, I don't know all the rules either. I can tell you where the photo came from, but I don't think I could figure out how to create a link.
    But if you are ever tired of this board, here is a wonderful site to check out: www.pixdaus.com
    If you search on Love Birds, you will see the picture I used.
    I found the site when someone sent me an e-mail with a whole bunch of pictures, and one of them had a sort of water mark of the site name. I haven't had the time to find the photo I was looking for (I wanted to maybe find the photographer and buy a print). I'm still stuck on the category "Bridge" which has some of the most awesome photos I've ever seen. Hundreds and hundreds of photos, just of bridges! Photos are submitted by people all over the world. There are also vintage photos. Search on any subject and see what you find!

    Thanks Beverly,
    That's really big of you, since you are obviously a dog lover!

    I went and had a look at the pic and I think this is another great job! The expression in the eye of the bird on the left is wonderful - he looks all dreamy and loved up! :D

    K3n, what an imagination you have!
    Did you check out anything else while you were there at pixdaus?

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Yes I searched on 'animals' there are some beautiful photos - the animal love ones are cute - the swans making a heart shape and the elephants with their trunks. There were also some really awesome ones of a guy with lions - the lion whisperer it said! :shock: :D

    I'm so glad you checked it out, K3n!
    Let me know if you ever spot the one of the rooster, crossing a plank bridge over a ditch, while his harem of hens wait up on the bank.
    That's the one I want to locate and, hopefully get a real print of.

    Waiting to load is a real bummer. Did you try changing the number of photos per page?

    No, I just leave it loading then go do something else! I've seen loads of chickens but no sign of your rooster yet!

    Love the birds. I am a dog lover and like the dog dreams one better. But this one is every bit as nice. :D
