Why Ducks Have Webbed Feet

This photo is one of the clearest memories from my childhood. I’m not sure how old me and my little brother are in the picture, but I know we were on a summer camping holiday in Norfolk.

He had asked me why ducks have webbed feet and I was trying to explain it to him, and I remember feeling proud that I could pass on some knowledge to him, and also feeling a level of responsibility towards him, because I knew he was really listening to what I had to say and trusting that I knew what I was talking about.

We may have had lots of silly arguments when we were young, and grew less close as we got older, but I treasure the fact I had him to grow up with, and share magical moments like this one.

Below is a layout I created for this photo. I wanted it to be fun and playful, but also have a sense of peace and nostalgia, so I used a mix of bright Papermania Retro Floral paper and accents with some DCWV Old World papers. I also found a little duck brad from craft works to show that childish innocence!

The only problem I had was that I planned the page and then had to write the journaling really small to fit it into the space that I wanted it to go in, should have thought about the journaling first! There is more journaling hidden on a tag with a bit of ribbon knotted on to pull it out, of stories I’m not ready to share yet!
