Here is my "ScrapHop" Layout

Time to RIDE






These photo's were taken last weekend at my Aunt's house.. she has the best backyard with lots of animals.. You just can't have so many animals and no one to ride them for a bit.. and that is what Sydney decided to do.. Time to Ride .. this wonderful Garden Elephant!!


The Details..

For the banner I used the arrow stamp, love that you can use it for all different elements on your patterned papers. I also used the end of the grid stamps for the title spot as well.. love how that turned out.



For these cone flowers the I used one of the grid stamp.. the dot one.. and cut the cone of the flower out of brown paper and stamped the dots on it .. LOVE THAT!! The flowers are just some Prima folded in half for a cone flower look.. and with a black fine tip marker I did a faux zigzag stitch for the stems.. Using some of the Basic Grey "Indian Summer" papers I rolled the tips .. I love how they had this one pattern that kind of matched the grid stamp perfectly.



Well, thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to head over to Claudette San Pedro's blog next!


Hope to see you all as well Tomorrow for the Big Release!! I will have more projects for you to check out!


Happy Wednesday...
Hugs and Smiles,
Angie

Angie your elements of your page are FABULOUS! I have to try some of these techniques out - the zig zag stem and rolled papers are adorable. I love the way you used the parts of the SB kit - brilliant and so versatile. Your dd is hilarious - what a fun idea to play in Aunty's backyard like that - lol!
