Zoology

BoBunny has released the most awesome Zoo themed collection! It is called Zoology and it has papers in the best patterns and colors! It also has printed chipboard, stickers, rub-ons, etc.

I wanted to create a layout with this new collection so I combined it with this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.


This is my Zoo layout:


I used some photos from a trip we took to the Detroit Zoo in 2008. I have so many pictures from that day, so this will help me to be one page closer to scrapbooking them all!



I started with a background of Kraft cardstock that I sprayed with Black Chalkboard Mist from Tattered Angels. Then I took a 'bite' out of a couple edges with a border punch! This was a really neat idea that came to me when I woke up yesterday and I couldn't wait to give it a try. (I must have been dreaming about scrapbooking!) I think it turned out really cool!


Then I broke into my stash of buttons and created a fun border that matched the papers really well.





I used the BoBunny alpha stickers that came with the Zoology collection for the journaling and I distressed the edges of my photos with a sanding tool.

I can't wait to do more pages with this collection! Thanks for looking :)

  4. Wow, just love it Joanne! Great inspiration to take a chomp out of your edge like that! I think I dream about scrapbooking too, but too often by the time I full wake up, I think I have forgotten those great ideas!
