Peanut and Walnut Update

I was recently asked about Peanut and Walnut.  They are doing well.  Peanut tends to be a bit accident prone, but she has recovered from recent injuries (mainly to her horns).  She is not an exemplary example of a cow, but she is a wonderful help with petting zoos.  She loves kids and doesn't mind them playing with her horns.  We will get another photo of her later - my camera card filled, so I have to do some deleting/ordering of pictures before taking photos.

Walnut is now a steer and has been ridden (he doesn't mind, though most riding steers have horns) and learning how to pull a cart.

As you can see, both are doing well and pretty happy to have the rain let up for a few days.  I will be adding some recent layouts I finally completed as well.  I have been having fun playing with my gypsy and welding - I think I used Country life (maybe) and Alphalicious for the Peanut the Wonder Cow title.  Her horns were not very big at this petting zoo.

I love the look of mosaic layouts, but have a really tough time creating.  This one was made very fun by using a lot of the swaps I have for school themes!  The swaps are from both and the cricut board.

I used a martha punch for this layout, along with some fun techniques I have been wanting to try.  I clipped pieces for the story from some October Afternoon papers.  The leghorns are looking wonderful these days, however, I was not thrilled with the ones who jumped out of their box and were running around in the back of my vehicle!  The Thank You in the lower right corner of the bottom page is the front of a card I received - worked perfect on this layout as I love to repurpose anything I can!
