Welcome to the Wild Side!!!
We are walking on the WILD side and hope you join us!!
In this blog hop you will see lots of animals along the way. You should have come from HERE. If you found me first, hop on over to LISA'S BLOG so you don't miss anything.
There is also some blog candy, so make sure you comment along the way too. Information about blog candy is at the end of this post.
We live near Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. It is an amazing zoo if you ever are close to Omaha or Council Bluffs, IA be sure to stop on over!! Once a year, they have special events for Members Only. We were waiting for the Jaguar training session and behind us was bear canyon (which is down a big hill from the Jaguar exhibit. A black bear climbed up the tree to see what was going on behind him - which put him close to eye level with the crowd!!
You can see here just how close the bear was to us!!!
I took a couple of photos with my cell phone (did not bring the BIG camera this trip) and was kind of freaked out!!!
Of course I had to make a layout!
I started with some images from the Silhouette Online store and my cameo:
I used the bear shape as a background piece and cut it out of black cardstock.
I used a font from my computer for "hello BEAR" and the border Wild Animals and cut them out in brown cardstock.
I used these two leaf cuts and cut them out in two different green cardstock papers.
Here is a sneak at my title and the leaves. I layered the leaves and let them hang off the page. I trimmed the edges.
Here is the bear peeking out from behind the photo!
I got a new toy - a Zink!! It is an inkless mini printer that prints photos from your cell phone and tablet. I forgot my big camera and before my Zink I hardly printed off any pictures (successfully anyway) from my cell.
These 4x6 photos were posted to FaceBook, then copied and saved to my computer and sent in to Shutterfly. The print quality of the 4x6 is not as good as the pictures I took with my Nikon D40 and printed from Shutterfly. It is such a pain to get these printed off!!!
And......with my Zink I may be able to actually do Project Life!!! I take several pictures every day with my cell phone, but not my big camera!
I hope you had fun visiting my black bear friend at the zoo!!! Now onto the Blog Candy!!!!
