At The Zoo Collection: Adventure Layout by Anita Bownds

Hi there, Doodlebug fans...
Anita here sharing a couple of zoo layouts..
How cute are these animals simply just adorable and the patterned papers just pop
So for my first layout I used the cute little giraffes as my main theme for my layout as in my photo is a mother and baby eating ..

I want to stick to a colour combination that would blend across the layout 
I started with white cardstock and the b side of jolly giraffes and creating a border around my white cardstock 
And  I wanted to bring more of that patterned paper into the middle of the layout, so i matted my photo on it and used the cut off bit to go behind it
Then I added a strip of animal crackers behind my matted photo then a smaller strip of roly poly pandas 
And adhering it al down to start to embellish the page.
I used the mother and baby  giraffes from the odds and ends die cuts and put them on the left side of my photo 

 I added the die cut leaves to 3 corners of my photo then a few stickers 
From the this and that cardstock stickers and a cute mini paper clip 

Using the leaf shape sprinkles I add a 1 to each bunch of leaves 
And I thought I would add the cute little giraffe head shape sprinkle just tucked underneath the heart sticker 
Then I added the adventure title and some matte sprinkles to finish it off

5554 zoo friends shape sprinkles 
5546 zoo matte sprinkles 
5555 jungle leaves shape sprinkles

5610 at the zoo - this and that cardstock stickers

5663 Jolly giraffes 

For my second layout I wanted a big title 
I started with my white cardstock and cutting a big block title out with my silhouette cameo 
And backed it with the b side of zoo friends 

Then using the b side of roly poly pandas I fit a strip to go down the edge of the layout beside the title to break up the black and white then I cut a strip from safari plaid and add it over the strip on the edge
Then I repeated the same on the other side using stripes then I machine stitched the edges to add a bit more texture 

I used a strip of Swiss dot beetle black petite print then layered a bit of roly poly pandas b side to bring more green in then using the other side of the Swiss dot beetle black patterned paper I matted my photo 
I add a little die cut frame from the odds and ends behind my matted photo 
A few word stickers from the this and that cardstock stickers on the corners of my photo 

I used the cute little zebra from the at the zoo icon stickers ad put him on the left side of my photo 
Then using the doodle pop paradise palm I put it on the right hand top corner of my photo 
Then added some beetle black cardstock stickers and a few matte sprinkles
