Chickens all around!

Goodmorning everybody!

First already thanks to some of you who posted a reaction on Becky Jo's question. I sent them to her, to be sure she got them as quick as possible. It seems she already solved something of it, but keep on posting ideas if you know! You are a great bunch. But I think this is one of the things we bloggers (specially WE scrappers and/or designers) do. We have a kind of community together and even if we live far from eachother we care a bit and try to help or support eachother. I think it is a lovely thing!

Oh, I have to tell you this. Friday evening I watched some terrific things on tv. We have here a musicien, Andre Rieu, who is travelling all over the world with his orchestre with immense succes. He playes most of the time light classical music, brings it in a way a broad audience can learn to appreciate the music. I know he is reviles by many and also adored by many. Anyway, I like watching his big concerts, he has many great guest artists it is a party, really. Anyway, I watched it with pleasure and this time he had, among other guests a famous Dutch choir: De Maastrichter Staer". They also travel around the world giving concerts, now they were here. But they also sung a Russian folk song, The twelve robbers, with a solist, oh boy, what a voice he had. It was very near a Russian bass, beautiful. When they where singing I really had goose skin from it, that means it must be GOOD!!! So that was one thing.

Later on the evening there was a program where they gave awards to disabled people, who overcome there handicap and achieved great things. I didn't watched it all, but one thing made a big impression on me. There was a Chinese ballet dancing couple performing. The man only had one leg, so danced with a crutch and only after a while I noticed the women only had one arm. For both not easy to dance, you should say. But they performed a pas-de deux, soooo beautiful, I watched it in silence with big eyes and completely focused. I never did see it before, but I was completely swept off my feet. It was a beautiful and elegant dance, unbelievable. What extremely hard training must have been done to get it at this perfection. And they danced it with their whole heart. I think we sometimes have to see those kind of things and admire them and we come back to our own feet more steady.

You see, I am still taken by it, so I had to share it with you.

But my Friday evening couldn't have been better with such beautiful things I saw.

And now.......the kit for today! I thought a bit funny one couldn't hurt. I suddenly got a flash in my brain and had the idea of making a chicken kit. Hahahaha. And here it is. I even went as far as making a recipe card in it with an easy recipe for a chicken dish on it. Am I a nice girl or not??

Not sure for what kind of pics you can use this it, perhaps for a family gathering with barbecue, or making recipe cards with it, something like that perhaps. Up to you to do something with it. Enjoy this kit, named "Tok, Tok, Tok........ Another Egg". And have a nice Sunday!

I think I have finally caught up with reading your blog and dwnlding your goodies.:)I love your kits.This chicken one is really cute.I have no idea what I will use it for..but your recipe idea sounds great.I want to do a recipe book soon.:)
I am not sure how to help your friend with the png files.I know if you bring them up in your paint can save them in a different format if you want.That might help.Also...I know some of the paint programs need to have the png format turned on.(a check in the square) helps.It's under "preferences".In mine anyway.:)I know it has to be frustrating for her.Hope she can get them working.I would love to see her cards.:)
Have a wonderful day.Hope you got to read that book in your garden.Sounds sooo relaxing.:)

Thanks for this chicken kit! What a great idea. The kit is cute. I have my great grandmother's egg basket that she used to take to market for eggs. (I have fake ones in it now in my kitchen) This kit will make a great background for the egg basket LO!
And... I want to thank all of you ladies who have tried to help with the png files. I can get them in the program now, but they have a green background. LOL From one problem to another.
Hugs, Becky Jo

Hello Kyra, Thank you for the freebie for those like me who are not crafty. (I try, I fail) I like scrapbooking, but it is something I am just looking into, never having made one yet. I dream I will make little 'family treasures'. ha @ me.
You saw the newest André Rieu Vrijthof Cocnert! What channel and where was that shown? It was recently filmed, last July in Maastricht.
Andre's concerts are such fun! I hope you have been or can attend one live. I posted his most recent tour schedules on our Blog:
Thanks again, and hope to see you at a concert soon!
