A Walk on the Wild Side

Welcome to the "A Walk on the Wild Side Blog Hop"!  Doesn't that sound like fun?  We are bringing to you a variety of projects with a safari or zoo theme.

If you just happened along my blog, why don't you head on over to the beginning of the hop with Lisa's blog at Honeybearz Designs.

For my project today, I made 2 centerpieces for a baby shower:

Aren't they cute?  A friend of mine asked for some help with a baby shower she is throwing.

The milk cartons are actually a retired product form Close to My Heart.  I then used a paper pack called Babycakes to cover the milk cartons.

For the overlay underneath the letters, I used Artbooking.  The overlay can be found on page 50, B3, Shift, Overlay, < E > cut at 2 1/2" using the Real Dial Size.  The letters were also cut using Artbooking cut at 2".

The cute little jungle animals came from the Wild Wonders stamp set which coordinates with Artbooking.  I stamped my images using Sunset, Slate, and Chocolate inks.
