2011: Louisville Zoo
While visiting my sister and her family we spend a day at the Louisville Zoo. I used two different leaf background papers for this spread that includes pictures of the kids and animals. See if you can figure out which is which.
I used my Cricut Machine to cut out the various animal silhouettes that are on the spread. The ephemera includes a patch from the Zoo store, as well as the brochure and map of the zoo. The brochure is attached to the outside of the plastic page protector so that the viewer can open it to read.
I used a corner punch to round the corners of the phot blocks – and notice that I rounded the edge of the brochure as well to help it fit inside the photo block. When it is opened it creates a neat effect and does not detract from the reading of the brochure.
While at the Zoo the kids had opportunity to explore the Sky Trail ropes course. I chose a striped background paper for this spread to mimic the ropes hanging down on the course. The course was a rigid square structure, and therefore I did not round the corners of these photos.
The two right most pictures are on the way back from the zoo – my son fell asleep ended up falling against my niece who I think regretted arguing about who got to sit next to him! I think that these are my favorite pictures of these two from their childhood.
