A Day At The Zoo ~ The Pink Elephant Scrapbook Challenge

Hi everyone..  Wow,  June has been very busy for me this year, and it's only half over..  My DIL is having her gall bladder removed tomorrow and I will have the little grand babies for awhile.  Not for sure how long just yet.  DD is still waiting for her little one to arrive and I will be helping her out at that time...  And then I made an unexpected trip back home to visit my parents and now I'm calling my mom every night about my dad..  I just don't know if I'm going to make it or not!!!   
I haven't had much time to scrap lately, but I did get this layout for The Pink Elephant Scrapbook Challenge finished.  This week it's a Sketch Challenge with a theme ~ Park/Vacation/Zoo!!  So how about digging out those fun photos and start scrapping.  We are even providing you a sketch to follow!!  Now, how easy is that??  Here's the sketch that Lori designed...  And what a wonderful sketch it is, too.  She's just sooo talented...    
And you can do so much with this sketch..  If you don't believe me go check out the layouts the other girls did, you won't be disappointed...
I decided instead of one large photo I would use 6 little ones.  The photos were taken August, 2008, and were taken at the San Antonio Zoo.  3 of the photos were taken at the "Lory Landing" which is an Australian rainforest environment that lets you get close and hands on with hundreds of brightly colored, nectar-eating lorikeets.  For a small fee you can purchase a small cup of nectar to feed these beautiful and gregarious small parrots.  We couldn't get Savannah out of there.. She was having sooooo much fun with these little friendly Lories!! 
This layout also qualifies for a few other challenges out there!!
