Houston Zoo Layout & 2 Red Bananas Split Sunday Challenge

The 2 Red Bananas challenge for this week was Pattern Frenzy in which you had to use at least 3 pattern papers in your project. If using double-sided paper counts, I'm in the challenge! The background paper Bo-Bunny's Chocolate Dot and the zebra pattern is Sparrow Zebra by Glitz Design. The grunge-ish blue is the back side of the Sparrow Zebra paper. So if using both sides of that paper counts, I'm in the challenge. The cool woven ribbon and the suede leaves are from 2 Red Bananas and the flowers are from prima.

Rainforest Cafe Layout

This is the most recent layout I've done. It's from a trip to visit Wendy and the girls in Beaumont, TX last May. The yellow background paper is from Black Market Paper Society. It has a really cool linen texture to it and the butterfly paper is from BasicGrey. The sticker letters are also from BasicGrey. Under the butterflies is a strip of silver ribbon. The palm tree was cut out on the cricut machine and the glittery stickers are from K&Co. Have a great weekend!

Crop 4 the Cure Layout

We have a local Crop 4 the Cure Scrapbook group that meets every other month for a weekend crop. But once a year we have a Crop 4 the Cure convention with more vendors, prizes, etc. These photos were of the last convention in September. Like the layout I posted earlier this week, I did this one a while back and took pictures but never got it posted. I got several sheets of the My Mind's Eye papers from 2 Red Bananas and mixed about 4 patterns together plus used the coordinating punch outs. I used some little jewels to accent the punch outs and put some on pop dots. Sorry the picture isn't that great. I haven't mastered the double-page layout picture taking skills yet :-)

Circus Layout

Well I know it's been a while since I've posted something! Since I'm not working on the 2 Red Bananas Design Team, I don't have blog deadlines so I've become a slacker :-) I was talking to a fellow scrap friend the other day and she made the comment that I haven't posted anything new so I'll see if she mentions seeing this one :-) Speaking of 2 Red Bananas, this week's Banana Split Challenge is pattern frenzy in which this layout would fit the criteria. You have to use at least three patterns on your project. Maybe I'll get some creative time to create something new so I can participate in the challenge this week. I did this layout a few months ago and took pictures of it but haven't posted it yet. I hope you enjoy it!
