... exploring in my creativity further in 2017

Once Upon a Time...

... there was a Frog Named Freddie. Freddie was a very talented frog. He could do amazing things with his tongue. Anytime he wanted to venture out into the world (and he loved to go on adventures....) he would stick out his enormous tongue and send the end spinning. In no time he had his own personal froggie-copter to lift him into the air and take him off on an exciting escapade.



This is my little submission to Inspiration Avenue's Weekly Challenge of "Once Upon a Time" and Whimsical Wednesdays. When my daughters were little, their Dad used to start a bedtime story with "Once upon a time, there was a frog named Freddie..." and from there the story would evolve with contributions from his and the girls' imagination. I don't know if that Freddie traveled by tongue-o-copter, but mine does!

Oddly this also suits the new December CED theme of "Air" though that was totally subconscious!
