Zoo LO

Tonight I finally finished a huge LO I started a day or two ago. You know it took you a long time when you can't even remember when you started it! LOL

It is a double page LO, and the right hand page is actually a flap that opens up to reveal two more pages. Sorry for so many pics, but I wasn't sure how to best show you what I'm talking about. I also apologize for the poor quality pics! I should have waited until tomorrow for better lighting, but I'm going to be busy tomorrow and wasn't sure if I'd have time to post. I think you can get the general idea, anyway.

And my Don Juan cartridge came today! Can't wait to play with it!!!!! DD's birthday party is this weekend, though, so I have to get ready for that. Scrapbooking might have to wait until next week. Sad

Wow, that's awesome! That's one thing that with digital is not possible (hidden pages). I can't wait to see pics of Lindsay's bday, either ... maybe get some ideas for Kaitlyn's party on the 7th lol.

Thank you so much for posting this! It is so creative and fun. I have been stuck on a zoo layout since July 4th!!!! This is definitely inspiring!

It's a scrapbook within a scrapbook! That is SO creative.

I would show a lot of picture too.... that is a spread to be proud of. I'm trying to give some specific praise, but I like the whole thing so much. Great use of colors, great picture placement, great use of wording. Just awesome!

That is awesome how it opens up!! I can't do anything like that because I put all my pages inside the plastic page sleeves. I have to becuase Xavier is so addicted to looking at pictures that it is the best way to ensure they don't get damaged. That and I use so many metal embellishments I feel like they will stay better in place that way. I love the animal cutouts!!!

Thanks, everyone!

They actually are inside of page protectors. I would never let my kids near my scrapbooks without them, either! Smile I got the idea for the hidden pages from my aunt - you can fold over the cardboard edge of a Creative Memories page (I'm sure there is a more technical term for it, LOL) and attach two pages together using photo tape. That way you can still use your page protectors. I've used this technique a few times when I can't quite fit everything on a double page layout. I have a hard time deciding which pics to cut out, so I usually just end up using them all!
