Over at Let's Scrap it is once again time for a new sketch, designed by the very talented Cheri O'Neill
When I saw the sketch I was very excited to get started and choose some pictures. The reason, I do not have a lot of portrait pictures, and this layout is filled with ONLY portraits. So I had to do a bit of digging, but in the end I found some lovely pictures to use. Here is my take on the sketch.
The pictures were taken while I was in the Kruger National Park during August. I really wanted to scrap something african, as I had the BoBunny Zoology Collection that I wanted to use, so I decided to use the KNP pictures and the Zoology collection. All the paper and embellishments were from that range, except the word "Kruger Park", which is from FabScraps. Instead of using a die-cut for the middle part of the layout, I made my own, by just cutting a square and I used a border punch around the edges.
I had a bit of a mishap with this layout - The day made this layout, I was scrapping with my mother-in-law. Once she left and I had finished the layout on the Saturday, I left it on the patio table where we sat the whole. Needless to say, my dear puppy - Sherlock - decided that evening, that he also wants to contribute towards this layout. So when I arrived downstairs the following morning to let him out, I got a bit of a surprise................. (thinking about it now, I should have taken a picture to scrap). I had to do some damage control, luckily I could salvage MOST of it! So in the close-up pics, you will see some teeth marks - those are Sherlocks :-)
What was really awesome about this collection from BoBunny, is that I got hold of all the stickers as well as the brads. I could use the G (giraffe) and Z (zebra) and E (elephant) as well as the "Monkeyin' around, as they matched the pictures perfectly. Below are pictures of the brads that I used. What I really loved about the big brads, was how they incorporated the South African monetary system into their brads!
For the title I had three portions:
- "Day Trippin'" which is also from the sticker sheet, I just added some staples to each side;
- "through the" is from the alpha-set, also part of this range;
- "Kruger Park", a chipboard word made by Fabscraps.
Well that is about it regarding the layout. Now for some prices!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About the Season-Serve (retail value $22 USD)
Marinades make food taste great―but they can make a mess. Put meat or vegetables in the container, pour over the marinade and close with top cover. Now, simply turn it over every three or four hours. Special grills on top and bottom ensure marinade flows―plus meat, fish and veggies stay extra fresh, even overnight.
