Grab your favorite hot beverage and a warm blanket because we are about to Chill Out!!

We went to the zoo on Christmas Eve this year - it worked out that we had no family gatherings this year.  Speaking of Just Chillin' ~ it was pretty chilly that day so we visited the inside attractions!!  Here is the layout I created:
I found a sketch from Frosted Designs ~ here is my take on it.
We have an amazing zoo - the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo.  Our Aquarium has just been updated and is one of our favorite indoor attractions.

We got to the penguins at feeding time and I was able to capture this photo.
I spritzed Dirty Martini and Cherry Pie Dylusions ink on the background paper.  I inked the edges of my cuts with Vintage Photo ink.  I added some gems on the patterned paper behind my photo.
I cut my title on my cameo using a font from my computer.
I am really happw with how this layout turned out.  Thanks for stopping by!!!  What is your favorite part of your zoo? 

Up next is the talented Robin Lane!
