We're Going To The Quirky Zoo ...reminder

It's Hot Hot Hot here! We've got the fans down from the attic blowing air everywhere and it's still too hot. Hubby's been repairing, no, rebuilding the shed all week and is at this moment on the roof. He tells me it's even hotter up there! I've been digging up roots and chopping down ivy, then hunting through all my old crafty bits and bobs, because I'm still out of coloured ink and paper/card and nearly out of glue again. I want to make something to remind you about Quirky Crafts 'Daddy's taking us to the zoo tomorrow' Challenge. You have another week to join in! Here's what I've ended up making! A sort of booklet.

 It's filled with all sorts of animals, I'm sure you'll find most of them in a zoo! Okay, maybe not a bunny with a chicken on it's head! Now I'm thinking, is that Bugaboo? I have a feeling I've thought this before... a few years back... if it isn't don't look at it!! That's it...pretend it's not there! The bunny is not there. Look away now... I'll change it to a Bugaboo image a.s.a.p! (The bunny comes from Bee Crafty! (ooops and sorry!) It was an Easter 2010 Freebie and still is HERE) Here's the next picture... all Bugaboo, promise!
 I already had some of the Giraffes, I won them some time ago, but I didn't have this one...
These were a couple of ATC's...nice and summery. That's where I should be! Down the flippin' beach!
 And last but not least, two more giraffes, which were printed onto some Dustin Pike paper ( It was green and not blue!) And as it's the last page, I thought I'd add the sleeping bear, because hopefully, all the kiddies should be asleep too! All the images are from Bugaboo. Last week I used Dustin Pikes zoo animals so this week I've used another of my favourites!
Luckily I did have a few images already printed out, some I had discarded because of the last time I ran out of ink! (Well, does it really matter that green leaves came out blue??? Course not!)  Atc's that were fixed on my craft room wall were ripped off (Literally! Plaster and all) and made good to go with the challenge. Most of the animals have been 3D-ed, coloured with ProMarkers, with added bits of garden string, raffia, ribbon, brads, buttons, foam and paper flowers and other stuff I've had in little boxes for years...You should see my mess... I've spread everywhere...but it was fun! I'd  better go and tidy up. I think I've buried Hubby under a pile of paper and I haven't seen the cat for ages! Thank you for stopping by! Hope to add this to some...

    1. I had to print some of the digi's on the other side of some (not very desirable) printed out backing papers as I seem to be out of everything! I mean, a crafter with out of paper, that's silly!
      I think it looks better in the photo's than it does in real life! But I am quite pleased with the way it came out. But then you can't go wrong with Bugaboo!

  10. Your zoo booklet is adorable! I think a lot of zoos also include petting zoos, so they might have a bunny with a chicken on it's head! :) All the animals on each page are great!!!
