Exotic Wildlife Zoo

Good morning, everyone! It's Friday and we have a 3-day weekend so I am super excited today!  I'm not sure what we're going to do this weekend but I wanted to show you what we did the last time we had time off from school and work.

I grew up in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, about 3 1/2 hours away from where I am now.  Oh how I miss living on the lake! Anyway, we headed out to a new exotic wildlife zoo. We had such a great time, aside from the deer in the petting zoo trying to eat my littlest daughter's skirt. And let me tell you how traumatic that is for a little girl who LOVES her skirts!  That aside, we got to feed camels, deer, llamas, baby goats and all sorts of animals I never thought we'd be close enough to ever meet.  We also got to see zebra, who were being shy that day, goats, who were actually standing way up in in trees, bison hanging out and so much more. Here's how I captured the details for my oldest daughter's album.

I had so many photos so I decided to make them either 2x2 or 2x3 and put them at an angle. This allowed me to still have a design aesthetic and include all the photos I wanted. I kept all the pattern paper to 2x2 and  luckily the title card and journaling card were 2x3. I added a few embellishments to some of the pattern paper. I intentionally kept embellies to a minimum. I used American Crafts Amy Tangerine Yes, Please to make this all come together.

The journaling goes a little something like this:
