Welcome 2 the Zoo layout

Finally a layout for my newest addition...Jaidyn my soon to be 22 month old daughter.  I was inspired to create this layout for 2 challenges, I missed one but I'm hoping to squeak this one in for Paper Cutz Challenge 107.   The requirements for this challenge was to create a card, layout, or papercraft using at least 2 Cricut cuts or stamped images of zoo animals.  Plus, add some dimension or bling and use any colors or occassion you'd like.  I think I did all that!!!

The picture was taken March 14, 2010 and my youngest daughter Jaidyn (in the stroller) was almost 4 months old and it was her 1st trip to the Phoenix Zoo.  This was the 1st trip of many others to follow and still to come.  In 2010 the Phoenix Zoo had a new exhibit and it was the Komodo Dragon.  We have been members of Phoenix Zoo since that year and will continue to because my oldest daughter loves animals and we love this time together as a family.  I knew I would eventually scrap this photo so at the end of the day I purposely bought the 5 x 7 photo and today here it is!!!

I used these items to create this layout:
  • Design Studio - to determine and cut the size of all the animals,the title and welded the word "the"
  • LePlume II markers and stamp pad ink - for shading and outlining
  • white gel pen - dots on the title and journaling
  • google eyes
  • Recollections Animal Kingdom pattern paper - for the title and background paper
  • Misc. cardstock
  • Foam squares - to pop-up all the animals and part of the title
I used these Cricut cartridges:
  • Animal Kingdom - for all the animals and most of the title
  • Birthday Cakes - for the 2 and the "the"
Here are some additional photos:

Thanks for looking...I really enjoyed making this layout, the 1st of many to be added to my daughter's scrapbook!
