Elephant Butts and Noise - A Trip to the Zoo!

How is that for a title to draw you in, huh?
I have two layouts to share with you from our trip to the zoo. The first uses Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Collection. I won this a just a little bit ago and I could not wait to play with it. I added a tag, trim and letters from my stash to create this fun layout. I am entering this in ScrapFit's challenge #45 to use something from around the house. The blue bias tape and flower trim was from my sewing box! I used Sketch 122 from The Scrappiest (I had to add one more photo) -
Make a Joyful Noise
And this is where you will find the butts! :)
The next layout is currently a favorite - I love the way it turned out! I completed five challenges with this one - that might be a record for me! To make it easy I am going to list them!
  • ScrapFit Workout #46 - to use school supplies! I used a flashcard on my layout!
  • Paper Variety and Crop Stop - Project inspired by Summer. What's more summery than red,white and blue and a trip to the zoo?
  • The Kraft Journal - "Something Old, Something New" (think combining old and new products on a single project). I used old Mind's Eye paper (red scalloped edge) and diecuts (ticket and flower) with new Mind's Eye paper (everything else!). And I stuck everything on kraft paper - which in my humble opinion seems to go with everything!
  • Sweet Peach Crop Shop Blog - The June Sketch!

Elephant Butts Make Me Nuts

I have a few close ups of the little elephants at the top. I used baker's twine for their tails and made an elephant train!

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
