Up Close & Personal

Hello everyone!! My daughter and I are back from our fun little get away!! We spent Monday at the Children's Museum in Indianapolis where they have a fabulous Barbie fashion display (which was perfect for Lauren since she does want to be a designer some day!!) and they also had a Rock N' Roll Guitars and Cars display!! Soooo much fun!! And then Tuesday we headed to the Indianapolis Zoo!! It was another great day where Lauren was able to be a Junior Dolphin Trainer and we got to see some of the animals very up close!!! Which is where I got the pictures for this weeks challenge at Sketches In Thyme!!! Our sketch this week is from Scrapiopath and allows for up to 5 photos! I love being able to use multiple photos on a LO!!



These are pictures I took of Lauren feeding the giraffes at the zoo!! They ate that sweet potato out of her hands so quickly I barely got the picture!!! They were so cute though and Lauren had a blast!

I have to be honest and say... this is not my favorite LO I have ever done. I think the patterned paper is so busy and the pictures are busy and combine that with the ribbon leaves circle and it might just be too much!! I love the sketch and I think I am going to try it again with some other photos!!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit!! Be sure to check out the Sketches in Thyme blog... the other designers did a fabulous job with this sketch!! Become a follower and play along!! You could win a prize!!

Papers: DCWV Animal Crackers stack
Cricut: Ashlyn's Alphabet for the circle
Letters: KI Memories

I think your layout is great! It's busy but you are still able to focus on the pictures. I felt that way about mine from last week....wasn't my favorite lo I've ever done! I really like the ribbon leaves circle....great idea!
