Here we are again with another Scrapbook Monday post! Today's page features actual photos from 2011 (ooohs and aaahhs from the crowd). I decided I better work on my newer photos as well as the older ones or I would forget what they were for... This is from my DD's birthday party. She is a cheetah fanatic and this attraction is fed by her 'fairy Godmother', who is also my sister. This year she received a bath towel and a ultra chic scarf from her aunt. Daddy thought he might look good in animal prints as well and tried on her scarf. My layout was based on a sketch from Simply Stampin' Challenge. This was their challenge a few weeks ago, but I didn't get around to creating with it until now.
Her scrapbooks are already full of layouts using cheetah/leopard prints, and quite frankly, I'm tired of using them! So I went with a sahara sand base, brown accents, and added just a hint of the animal print by using strips of fleece material as ribbon.
The background print was made using versamark, clear embossing powder, and a quick shot from the heat gun (have I mentioned my fascination with this process??) The rest is pretty self-explanatory
