Each of these two layouts were created using patterns from Reflections. Rather than using the stamps to create the animal parade on the first layout, I actually cute the animals from one of the B&T papers in the Level 2 paper pack. I used only buttons as embellishments in an effort to create the two pages quickly. These pages will be back to back in Elijah's album so I only journaled on the first layout but used the stamped number 1 as an accent on the second layout. I love how the photos of animals fill the role of both photo and accent.
This particular trip to the zoo in Alexandria was to celebrate our first son David's 2nd birthday. It was also Elijah's first trip to the zoo. Each of these layouts will go into Elijah's album but I continue to add layouts to David's album as a way celebrate his memory. Check back tomorrow for his 2nd birthday layout and a collection of birthday cards using the Animal Cookies papers. What isn't used for those projects will be given to the girls tomorrow at the crop so on Thursday I will be moving on to another paper pack. Hmmm... which pack should I choose next?
