Just one sketch #6 including penguins

I feel so lucky to have 'met' so many lovely people via the Blogosphere and today's post is brought to you via the kind of actions of two lovely ladies who I have never met in real life but know that if I did, we would become firm friends.  
Firstly to Alison over at Life in the Slow Lane.  I have just realised that she lives in a village about 20 mins drive from where one of my husband's relatives has a holiday home so you never know, we could maybe meet in real life sometime!  She read my post about worrying about the forthcoming trip to Africa that my son is planning and sent me a lovely note and fridge magnet with a beautiful sentiment.  
Then onto Deb at Paper Turtle who saw a beautiful jewelled penguin embellishment and remembered that I have a soft spot for penguins.  I've been holding onto it, just waiting for the right layout and yesterday that layout appeared as part of Just One Sketch.  This prompt was to fill your page, and I printed out two pictures from the snowy conditions on Sunday and what do you associate with snow and freezing temperatures?  Penguins!  And so the next layout was born ...

I could of course take the stand that my feelings on this subject are unprintable, given my aversion to penguins - but that would be hugely unfair on two lovely, lovely ladies :)

Worthy layout for the penguin, I can't believe how mild a winter ya'll were having and the cold you now have! You are right, they are 2 very lovely ladies :)

This is a great page, extra special because of its connections to Alison and Deb. Yay for blog friends!
PS: I'm laughing at the beginning of Sian's comment.

Hooray for blog friends and hooray for your adorable page! I always think of you when I see penguins, Mel when I see hummingbirds, and Rinda when I see unicycles. :o)

Great use of the penguin, love the title. Isn't it fun meeting e-maginary people, especially if you then get to meet in real life.
