The Road to Africa

 I had my leftovers from the Free to Be Me promotional paper pack last month sitting on my table and the just seemed to be perfect for these pictures from Animal Kingdom on the way to the African Safari!!
Above is a layout from a challenge on a virtual crop I think!  The green of the photo mat is actually from Ariana!  Mixing paper packs is so crazy right!? I love the way it turned out!  I am usually so picky about the distribution of colors on layout like this and forced myself not to be and just plunked the circles down wherever and it turned out great!  My son was so fascinated with the man carving!  There is another picture of him with another man carving at Epcot 2 days later!

 I have been taking a class online about altering sketches to suit your needs and the bottom page was one of the sketches!  The original sketch had a 5x7 and two 2x2s.  I used matting to give my 4x6 photo the look of a 5x7 and changed the two tilted photos to larger photos!
I wanted to add a plug for a virtual crop group I am in!  We "get together" every month and I usually host and ask just random silly get to know you questions every other hour and on the off hours I post a challenge!  You get a ticket for question answers and for challenges done and posted.  At the end I draw a random person for a prize!  It is a great way to get some creative time without having to go anywhere and it also pushes you out of your box with the challenges being maybe a different way to scrap than you usually do!  It is fun too to read people's responses to questions!  If you are interested in joining us next month let me know and I will invite you!


  1. We must be in the same online class :) Wonderful layout. It's fun to see how Disney has changed since we were there in 93'

    1. I got so behind! I now need to go finish it!
