So everyone knows the cheap plastic garden flamingos that seem to be everywhere, well, now they come in mini! These cute little flamingos can travel with you wherever you go, and you can pose with them everywhere, just stick em' in some dirt and snap, you've got a picture with you and your little flamingo friends! (though your finger may be the only thing to fit in the picture with the flamingos, they are so small. Smiley)

So, in school, we're learning about advertisments, so I thought I'd try it out with my challenge entry, which hopefully you got from the add, is five little garden stake flamingos. I made them out of clay, and their travel case is a machbox, which I cut down to 2 inches. Each flamingo is about 1 x 2 cm, but they're posing with a quater for size too. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!


Here they are!




Heres them and their fancy travel case (made of a matchbox)




and here is the flamingo being a cameo spy by being a flower. he he he  Smiley

Thanks for looking!




Oops, I forgot to put the most important picute in! the one of the garden flamingos actually in the garden!
