I have two different projects to share with you today.  The first is a two-page layout I did a few years ago:

 



My husband and I spent almost a month in San Antonio, Texas back in April of 2008 while we were going through an IVF cycle.  While we were there, we (obviously!) had a lot of time to sightsee; one of those trips was to the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, just north of San Antonio.  At this ranch, you're able to drive your own vehicle through the ranch, all the while seeing many different species of animals and being able to drop food out your window for them.  As you can see, the zebra thought he needed to come in the window to get his!  LOL!


I picked up the "Cute Critters" sentiment set from an online sale at My Craft Spot.  When I ran across this "Happy Lion" from KennyK in my digital stamps, I knew they would be perfect together!  I made this simple card, because I wanted the image and sentiment to be the focus.  

Up next is VERONICA.  Here's our lineup in case you get lost:

Ashley (YOU ARE HERE!)
Veronica (GO HERE NEXT!)

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

That layout is so fun and the photos are hilarious! The printed papers add just the right amount of embellishment while letting the photos stand out.

Your layout about the wild animal park is really wonderful. The photos are awesome (and hilarious) and your mix of patterned papers couldn't be more perfect.

I love the safari feel of the layout, it is beautiful. Puns are also one of my favorite types of cards, so yours is great and I might scrap-lift it for a coming Valentine's card.
