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!
