Day at the zoo

Today i am sharing a little mini I made with Carina Gardner's SVG files. Our family decided to take a trip to the zoo and we had a great time. It ended up being about 90+ degrees and super humid but we made the best of it!

Jordan had a great time and for a little guy he did about 3 hours of walking and didn't whine about nothing. I think he really enjoyed seeing all the animals. He wanted to take a train ride around the zoo which we had hoped would show all the animals. It was crazy it just showed the buildings and operations of the zoo (who wants to see that!) so in the process of the long wait in line we missed feeding the giraffes. BUMMER. The giraffes are my absolute favorite animal. One year I was there they had a baby and it was just so adorable.

They had a new orangoutang exhibit that was quite disappointing. We seen only about two and they seemed rather lethargic. My photo seems bad but honestly it was because of the glass they were behind.

The cover I took the giraffe shape from the Alphabet file to create a shaped cover for the front. I pop dotted the giraffe for dimension. I hand wrote the "DAY AT" part of my album. Carina's "Swirly The" file was PERFECT for the look I was going for. I even doodled this out before working on it and I had doodled something similar so it was meant to be.

I have a list at the bottom of all the files I used for the album. It was fun and I still have loads of pages to fill.

I added Timeless Twine to some of the photos to just give it that extra little detail and to some of the tags.

**I used Carta Bella's Alphabet Junction on most of the pages and AC Cardstock for the solids

I used the "double pocket album" file to just create a little pocket and added the fish from the letter "F" I also added wink of Stella Glitter pen to the fish. Hard to tell in photo.

I created a button (of course right!) and fit it over the giraffe body just to give it a little pop of dimension.

I just made a pocket to keep extra photos and journaling cards in until I get to adding more pages

I cut a second layer on some of the images and pop dotted them to give them more dimension. I also created a button clip with the elephant. Here is a close up.
