Detroit Zoo Day

As a small child my son LOVED the Zoo. He could never get enough of watching the snow monkeys play or roaring at the lions. I found these Old pictures the other day and thought they'd work perfect for one of the challenges over at Scrap Sisters Studio. Our October Memorial Crop is going strong. In Memory of our Friends Leslie and Chris, did you- "Feel your Boobies today"?

Our challenge was to use a sketch from Sketch Support, specifically Sketch #8. Our friend Chris used it and made this layout:

As you can see I changed things up a bit. Where the journaling was on the original I put the cute little snake on the branch. He's from Little scraps of Heaven Designs. I tucked the journaling in above the banners.

Here's a few close ups:

It feels so good to complete a challenge. It also feels good to scrap OLD photos. One more down. I entered this layout over at Scrapbookers Anonymous. The October Challenge was to use die cuts. I think this qualifies.

I hope your feeling crafty today. I am! Lets see what else I can create this weekend.
