Gail's "The Birds" Challenge

Postby missgailly » Sat Apr 21, 2012 11:08 am

Alfred Hitchcock was an award winning producer and director who made many wonderful, but mostly, suspenseful films.

In 1963, his movie “The Birds” came out. The plot was as follows:

A wealthy San Francisco socialite pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town that slowly takes a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people there in increasing numbers and with increasing viciousness.

It scared many, many people (including me) and no one ever looked at ordinary birds the same way again. :shock: :shock:

For this challenge, I’d like you to use BIRD(s) on your project (but not scary ones, please). :)

Here's my example using the yummy April kit:

I actually got attacked by a bird once (I was too close to her nest) - it scared the crap out of me. It was BEFORE I saw this movie though..... :shock:

WE didn't have geese, but we had a turkey that would come out to the road and meet the school bus! I hated that thing! :roll:

I'm glad the challenge is far less creepy than the movie - that was a scary one!!!
