the Great Escape

Squirrels are so cute.  I know they are rats with fuzzy tails but I still think they are cute...until they get into the drain pipe or run down the chimney or eat all my bird seed!

Last summer my husband heard a noise in the gutter.  He had me listen and at first nothing but soon, I heard it too so we set about to rescue whatever was down there.  We put a tie down strap down the gutter and left it overnight.  The sound was gone the next morning and then we began to see this little squirrel in our yard.  I wonder if he is the same one now eatting up all my birdseed?

The layout is based on a sketch of Shimelle's from a past class at Two Peas in a Bucket.  This week 2P's is doing all kinds of challenges to celebrate the new CHA releases.  This one is called: #6 Pick a Sketch.  See the entire list of challenges here.  Challenges are open through Sunday Feb 5.

I'd had that die cut from Crate Paper's Lemongrass collection forever knowing someday I'd have some squirrel story to tell.

Thanks for visiting today!

  1. I so love the way you capture life's "ordinary," or maybe not so ordinary (?) moments in your scrapbooks. They always give me a chuckle! Karen S.

  2. Love the bright colors in this layout! You are so right about squirrels. They are cute, but can be such pest. We have a yard full of them too!

  3. Awww what a sweet story.
    Squirrels can be very damaging to property....especially the huge mutant ones we have, lol.
    Cute layout :)
