Throwback Thursday Challenge: Zoobaloo

Submitting another project for the Throwback Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time with Emma! Love this challenge!!

Can't believe I am posting this so close to the deadline again! I actually had my page completed on Thursday evening and just put off taking the picture.... then, I couldn't get a good picture! Ughh! Oh well, I had fun playing with my Gypsy and learned a bit too. I also waisted A LOT of paper (especially on the grass!!)

The most important thing that I learned is to consider the paper you will be using when you design your layout on the Gypsy. For example, I put the palm tree and base layer of the animals on the same layer. The paper for the animals was extremely thin and the palm tree was thick. So, I would either rip the animals or not cut through the palm tree. Lesson learned! Next challenge for me... play with my new Peachy Keen stamps!

As for the picture... I was tempted to put a "cute" picture of my son on the layout; but, then I finally chose the picture that was taken as soon as they held him up and said, "It's a boy!". Maybe, I will show this picture at his wedding one day :)

Thanks for looking!

Peace and Love!
