Everything ABC Blog Hop - Letter K for Kilimanjaro Sarfari

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter K.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their K element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

K is for Kilimanjaro as in the Kilimanjaro Safari at Disney World's Animal Kingdom!

Ever since I found this layout on Pinterest I have been wanting to do it!  It was quite the time investment!

I started in the Cricut Craft Room with a triangle from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and stretched to be pie shaped.  then I put a circle on the page the size I wanted and positioned the wedge around it and resized to get 12 around the circle.  Then I cut a wedge and used it as a template to fussy cut out the animals.

The center circle I cut using the Accent Essentials Cartridge and added the title and Blue and Green Epoxy bubbles to make it a focal point of the page!
The giraffes were cut out using the Animal Kingdom Cartridge and I added Opaques (retired) to bling up the eye and nose!
The flower and leaves were cut from the Creative Memories Traveler Cartridge and inked to look more realistic!
 I kept the right page simple to not strict from the left page and cut out the hippo and crocodile from the Animal Kingdom cartridge.  I also added Opaques for their eyes and nose and used a white pen to emphasize the crocodile's teeth.  I also inked each animal to show the cuts and details.  The Durable Studs at the top and bottom are retired but we have Triangle and Artisan Durable Studs available now that would be great for the same purpose!
Hope you enjoyed this!  I sure enjoyed making and sharing it!
