STAMP SOMETHING FRIDAY CHALLENGE - IN THE WILD

Whoohoo - it's Friday everyone - know what that means??!! Time for another Stamp Something Challenge!!! This week we are featuring anything that represents something in the wild whether it is flowers, gardens, animals, trees, etc - you get the point, right??!! So, I decided that for my sample I would do a scrapbook page featuring the wild turkeys that visit us from time to time - it was totally funny to see them all marching around like they own the place! And, when they spotted me, they all lined up and marched quickly off into the woods! You could almost hear the leader saying, "this way, hurry" - LOL! Now, not all the products used are Stampin' Up! because I used my May scrapbook Kit from Coconut Scrapbooks - fabulous stuff in this one! So, I will leave you with a recipe at the end of my post, fair enough?? Those products NOT Stampin' Up! will be clearly identified as such! I did however, use my very cute Zoofari stamp set because I thought the marching birds were too cute to pass up! I also made a turkey out of my punches - I love the way he turned out! He is popped up on dimensionals to give my page a little more depth. Let me know what you think and make sure you get on over to the Stamp Something site and check out what the fabulous DT did for this week's challenge - you will not be disappointed! And, give the challenge a try and upload to the site, we all love to see what you do each week! Have a FABULOUS weekend everyone! Toodles!

Oh Alex, I love this page. So funny. I love the arrows and the birds from zoofari, works perfectly. I gotta remember those birds when I start my zoo book. We're going to the zoo here in Germany Sunday and I told the guys they had to like it, lol.
