Scrapbooking, Zoo Fun


I have had these pictures sitting on my desk just waiting to be scrapbooked for a while now.  When I saw the challenge on The Paper Girls blog, I knew that these pictures were perfect for it.  I don't do challenges too often.  Mostly I never can finish them before the deadline, but often I don't have the right pictures for the theme, the right materials on hand that they call for, or I'm just not feeling the sketch or layout at the time. 


I love the details of this page.  The challenge required the use of mesh.  I used some as a backing for my main photo.  I did lots of stitching and had lots of fun cutting out frames for the photos.  I made the little green flag and cut out the hippo and leaf from some more paper.  I also used a monkey brad by the title that I've been wanting to use for a long time.  It's a little crazy pattern wise, but I love it!
