The zoo

We went to the zoo yesterday with Lea, Bella and Ollie. It was very cold, no wind (phew - I hate the wind!) but foggy until we left at about 12.30! It was a really fun little outing with our very special friends. Tassy and Bella tripped on the gravel while running and Tassy skinned a knee and ruined a pair of tights. She's such a klutz like me! But luckily it was on the lower side of her knee and she couldn't see it, so she recovered fairly quickly. Here are my favourite pics of the day.

So who's the artist being showcased on Donna Hoopers Collective Creative blog at the moment? Well lookee here it's me, lol! I love what Donna did with my photo - a little airbrushing here and there to remove some wrinkles. ;) If only she could do it in real life. This is the layout I did for the Collective Creative blog. The photos are over a year old. I love discovering old "scrapworthy" photos. :)This next one I did for a LSS. The colours aren't what I would normally use, but I like how this one turned out. I thought the papers would suit a boy, and since I don't have a boy I used this old photo from my dad's and his brother's birthday from 1960 or 1961. I just love all the vintage and kitsch stuff you can see in the photo. I'm a bit slow getting around to this, but apparently I'm a Rockin' Girl Blogger as nominated by Mardi and Miriam. Thanks girls! It's just sharing the love. :) You can read more about it here. I'm going to nominate a few girls and I don't care if you've been nominated before. :)Megan

Have a great day everyone!

Yvette your layouts are all gorgeous, and I will be heading over to check you out at Donna Hoopers! I love that one in cool.

Your trip to the zoo sounds like a success too. What a shame Tassy skinned her knee, but if she got over it quickly then that is great!
