For this hop we were asked to choose one project that Michelle from Scrappin for Kenzie has made from her gallery or facebook and make our own project using hers as inspiration. 

For my project I have chosen to scraplift this project from her:
This is a slider card that Michelle made I believe for Kenzie's first birthday

Here is my inspired project:
I decided right away to use her card as inspiration to make a layout for one of our zoo trips with the grandbabies.  The paper I used was DCWV Animal Crackers and DCWV Safari Kids.  I also used some scraps from my scrap pile.
The animals and title are all cut from Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge.
Here is the double page layout

I also punched out one inch circles and put them in bottle caps.  
Zoo time Letters from K and Company 
Cut sizes- Create a Critter 
Monkey page 46, lion page 57 zebra page 47 and elephant page 55 all cut at 3 inches
The giraffe was cut from page 48 at 6 "
Please check out my blog candy give away going on right now at the top of my blog.  I am really trying to make it to 500 followers by March 10th which is my birthday.  If you are a new follower let me know and if you send someone to my blog to be a follower let me know.
