Duck Tales

 On our last trip to Disneyland a few weeks ago, the ducks were out in force!  And there were a lot of ducklings running around too.  They are so funny the way they really aren't bothered by all the people.  Sometimes they are so blatantly careless that the mamas take the ducklings out into the central hub to go popcorn hunting and are in danger of either being trampled by people and horses, or run over by one of the vehicles, so the Disneyland Security assigns a duck patrol to follow the around with umbrellas and make them get out of the way when danger is near.
 I stretched this one-page sketch into a two-pager for all my duck pictures.  

 I love the mama duck in the main photo on this page.  She had her little brood up on the banks of the Jungle Cruise and she had some things to say to us as we passed.  I caught her in mid quack.  And the ducks just sit wherever they want.  The top photo on the side is from the Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer's Island where they are sitting on the sunken ship, and the duck butt is was taken from the deck of the Mark Twain near New Orleans Square.

 This side has one of the ducks sleeping on the back of a moose along the Rivers of America, and from the poo running down the moose, you can tell that he sleeps there a lot.  The bottom picture is of a momma duck and her brood swimming in the upper pool in Pixie Hollow.

 The papers I used on this layout were from Scrap Within Reach, and I made my own flower jpg. to use as a cutting file so they matched the flowers in the paper. You are welcome to download it for your own personal use.
