Ha!

BrainDead... all this whole week.

Then... found this HUGE toad... twenty forty minutes before the challenge ended!

I raked off a posterboard... added some sprinkles that I put on the table for the kids' birthdays... and ... the topper *grin*... a hat that my BFF gave me... left over "for whenever I needed it" from their 4th of July family celebration.

*grin*

Even if everyone hates it... I feel SO GOOD that I got 'er dun... in only fifteen minutes... start to finish. :D

Life is good... even when we're grumpy. :D

ETA: The hat is probably just a smidgeon too large for a Barbie's head.

Oddly, he was uncomfortable in the large empty space (they like to hide) UNTIL I put the hat on him. Then, he was calm, hiding there where no one could see him under the hat. :D

He actually, was smiling... that's his happy face. :D

THANKS FOR THE HM, FOLKS!

If I see him again (and recognize him), I'll tell him of his success.

I never realized that toads would sit still and be tolerant of toppers, or any clothing for that matter. Good to know.....in case I ever come across a toad I want to dress.

I loved this photo!
