Turtle Creek

Well last week my daughter's preschool went to Turtle Creek Farm here where we live. Let's just say 30 very excited kiddos had a blast. This isn't your typical farm. They had Emu's, Lamas, chickens, pigs, alligators, sheep, ducks, an albino hedge hog, a huge tortoise, and even European Deer. The kids had a blast and Ms. Lucy surely loves teaching these kids a thing or two about animals. She was so wonderful and my little girl keeps asking to go back and see Ms. Lucy. The preschool has now done this trip 25 years. 
I think one of the  highlights of this field trip was feeding the animals. My daughter loved to feed the chickens, the ducks, the sheep. The other highlight was my daughter holding the animals she loved to hold them including the snake (ewwww), and the baby alligator.

Ok enough about the farm here's the layout I made for this. When I saw the challenge at PKS I knew instantly that I wanted to use this paper. This weeks challenge at PKS was to use specific colors:
Kraft paper for the base
Imaginisce Happy camper line  I think this paper is perfect has most of the colors. I added a splash of yellow.
Create a Critter - Chicken,  Hedge Hog, and Pig all cut at 2.5"
Create a critter - Alligator cut at 2"
Create a Critter - grass - 1", 1.5", 2"
Banner - Arts Philosophy - 1"
Billionaire - Letters cut at 3/4"

PKS stamps for the chicken, hedge hot and pig

The layout came from a Sketch that I really love from http://www.sketchsavvy.blogspot.com/. What great inspiration for different designs.

Since this has a small banner on it too I'll be using it for another entry in the Magazine challenge on the Cricut circle blog. This month was to make a banner - and you can also enter as many times as you want. I love that.

Hope you enjoy and
Happy Scrappin'
