Stampin' Up! Zoo Review and I create a Giraffe Scrapbook Page

I have been participating in a 52 layout challenge over at The Scrapbooking Haven, and this week it was to scrapbook a ''collection.'' I collect giraffes. They have been my favourite animal for a long time, and slowly, people realised, and gave me giraffes... I have a bunch of stuffed toys including one a friend made me, bookmarks, key rings, a pillow, and a painting my best friend from high school painted me (she is crazy talented!). So, I scrapbooked about my collection
The coloured picture is a photo of the painting I received off of my friend, the other is a giraffe I bought from the zoo. I have used a Kraft base, and torn some giraffe paper my mum bought me when she went to Melbourne a couple of years ago, and some woodgrain paper. I have layered on some ruffled ribbon and a border punch. The patterned paper flower is from my friend Kelly from Kel's Kaszazz Kaleidoscope (Hi Kelly!) and the giraffe is from Zoo Review, I stamped him on to some worn looking patterned paper, drew around his outline with a Stampin' Write Marker, and then fussy cut him out.  

Thanks for dropping by, if you have any questions, please leave a comment :)

I used to collect giraffes quite a few years ago, had a lot of brass ones and finally got rid of them as they were hard to keep clean - a lovely page and fab photos of part of your collection.
