Beautiful Giraffe's~

Hello Ladies~

A big thank you for all the lovely comments you leave for me, they are so very welcome and so nice to read.

I have just had some of my older photographs from my cd's printed. I decided a couple of weeks ago to get all the cd's out and go through them, it was lovely to see all those "memories" come flooding back of when we used to go on our "day's out" with the children.......Alas not any more, I go shopping with them now, but gone are the trips to the beach with a bucket and spade and the local Zoo.

This is the page I came up with today.
I have followed the lovely sketch set by "Frosted Designs" and after a good look through my photo's came up with these two taken of the Giraffe's at the local Zoo.
I could just watch them all day, I still cannot believe these creatures have a neck that long! It just defies gravity doesn't it?

I have used 2 sheets of Bo Bunny "Back to Back's" cardstock, a Doohickey Swirl and a row of Tim Holtz tickets (which I have stamped on with a double bird stamp and added some glossy accents, all coloured with Pro-markers). I added journalling to the lines on the paper at the bottom left hand corner.

Hi Debbie,
How lovely to have a 'local zoo' This looks fab. I love the photos & layout of this & the birdie raffle tickets. Recently you asked about how I colour with my Prismas. I'm using Verithin ones, which might make a difference & I do a lot of blending & then use pencil strokes again over the top. Other than that it's all very much trial & error & fingers crossed. One day I'll do a tutorial. But thanks so much for your kind comment & for joining us at Secret Crafter's this week.
