Here is a layout I scrapbooked this weekend, based on Audra's April sketch challenge over at Scrapdango.
The longer story on Owlie - Every year around the time of our anniversary (Nov 10) Steve and I buy a Christmas ornament, or ornaments. The first year we got ornaments from Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. The second year we got a set of mini nutcrackers. This past year we got Owlie. We got him a little late, I spotted him in the store, and remembered we had forgotten to get an ornament, and thought Owlie would be perfect, Steve agreed. So we brought him home and went to hang him up, and the string came off his back. I tried to glue it back on, but it just took more "feathers" out of his back. So I decided we would play a game with him, take turns hiding him around the house. The rules were you had to hide him in plain view (not behind anything, not under anything, not in a drawer...etc.), and the person looking had 3 days to find him, if not, the hider could hide him again. I don't think either of us hid him a second time in a row, because after a few days we would give each other clues. His final spot was as the tree topper on our Christmas tree. He is now waiting on top of our bookshelf for next December to come around, and for the game to start again.
