LM 357 - All About Animals - At the Zoo

This month at Lasting Memories, our theme is "All About Animals."  This week, our challenge is to use a zoo animal - it can be in your photo, on your paper or embellishments, etc.

When I came up with this month's challenge, I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use.  In December, we went on a trip to St. Augustine, Florida.  We visited The Fountain of Youth.  There were peacocks EVERYWHERE!  And you could feed them peanuts!  I absolutely LOVE peacocks and this was the absolute highlight of my trip.  The photos worked really well with this gorgeous paper!

August Stick it Down Challenge

Here's the sketch for this month's challenge at Stick it Down.


In December, my husband and I went to St. Augustine for vacation with his family.  We visited the oldest wooden schoolhouse.  I used an old Webster's Pages collection and its vintage school images were PREFECT!

LM 356 - All About Animals - In the House

This month at Lasting Memories, our theme is "All About Animals."  This week, our challenge is to use an animal that could be in your house (dog, cat etc) - it can be in your photo, on your paper or embellishments, etc.

I was down the shore last week.  Each night, I would walk my dogs with my 14 year old nephew. The sun was setting one night and we talked down to the bay.  Rocky, my boxer, jumped up onto the wall.  I sat next to him and asked my nephew to take our photo.  I LOVED IT!  SO I asked him to have me my other dog so that she could be in the photo too.  These are two of my favorite photos of me and my dogs.  Look at that lighting!!!
