SYS Challenge #2

Hey Gang!!!! It's another WONDERFUL Friday here in sunny Florida which means another wonderful challenge at Scrap Your Story!!! This week's challenge is to create a layout with animals in mind.  Nowm this can be either photos of animals, animal paper, embellies, etc... Use your imagination!!! 
I happened to have some photos lying around from the last time we went to Animal Kingdom so why not scrap them up?!?!?  There's an area there where you can "dig up" dinosaur bones and fossils that's very neat for the kiddies!  They have a huge dinosaur "skelton" for the kiddies to look at, amongst other wonderful things!

I started by using a sketch by Tabitha Triplett... Here it is:

And here is what I've come up with:

I started by using the "Wild Saffron" paper collection by K&Company which I think is perfect for this type of layout!  I combined it with a die-cut pack by K&Company also that fit right in with the theme.  The chipboard "flowers" are by Basic Grey but I thought they had a "bone-y" look so I added them on!  I also used some grungeboard arrows from Tim Holtz that I dyed with Walnut Stain Distress Stain and inks, then went over it with Ranger's Perfect Pearls.  I did the same for the large chipboard "D" in the word discover.  I added a small amount to the rest of the word for them to match!  Here's a close-up...

For the "bones" at the top, I cut out various bones in various sizes using my "Movable Monsters" Cartridge on the Cricut Expression 2, then used some mod-podge to adhere them to plain grungepaper. After they dried, I painted them using Vinatge White color, and a few more coats of mod-podge for the glossed over look.  I put them on a "ring" to look like a collection!!! The letters are by Recollections and the rub on by My Minds Eye.

Well my friends, thanks for stopping in and have a LUCKY day!!!!
