A Trip to the Zoo and a FREEBIE!!

A few weeks to ago, my mom and my stepfather took the little girls (my daughter and my niece) and their nannies to the zoo. 

The girls with their guardian angels.
I tagged along too, of course. We went to the Avilon Zoo in Montalban Rizal. The girls wanted to see a giraffe and an elephant but alas... this zoo does not have big mammals. They have a lot of other fascinating animals though and we all enjoyed the trip. Except maybe for Andrea, who fell asleep on the one-hour road trip we had to take to get there, and just woke up when we arrived so she was cranky.

I created digital scrapbook pages of some of our photos from the trip. I used elements from Everyday Mom Ideas' Wild Ways kit. You can download the entire kit for FREE!

Alpha used for this layout is from The Scrappin Cop
Me and the girls.
I asked Julia, the designer behind Everyday Mom Ideas, if I can post Quick Pages of my layouts made with her elements as freebies for my readers. She said yes, YEY! Thanks again Julia! So here's my first Quick Page freebie. 

(File Size: 21 MB)

The file contains 2 quick page layouts: One for a 12x12 page, and the other for a 8x12 page (can be printed as a 4R size or 4x6... which is the standard size I use for printing photos for our photo albums). I removed the text so you can add your own (I also do not have a commercial license from The Scrappin Cop to distribute her elements). If you have any issues with the download, please feel free to contact me. This is my first time to use Google Docs so I have no idea how reliable it is.

I'm still working on my elements set. I don't think I can make a whole kit just yet. Getting the images to look just right is hard! It looks like I might have to take photography lessons to get great photos for extraction. Anyway, here's a preview of my elements set. 

Coming soon!!!
Of Pinks and Fairy Tales Elements Set
NOTE: Only the 3 brass flowers are mine (extracted from photos of my rings and pendants). The other elements used in the preview is from Granny Art (vase, window, small gold flowers spray). I'm still in the process of extracting some more images to add to set before I make this available for free download.

Family bonding! Kids today are luckier kasi dati ako through field trips lang nakaka explore ng new places. Sana paglaki ni Andrea maalala nya 'to. How about Ocean Adventure and Manila Ocean Park? Na try na ni Andrea?

I just love what you did with my kits. Great job!
