I couldn't help myself. I love the Hump Day commercial, and it was the first thing I thought about when it was time to scrap my son's visit to the petting zoo. He was so excited to get to ride the camel, and wanted to do it over and over again. I really like this layout, and how I was able to get 16 pictures on it. I started by cutting the title and the camel using my Cricut. I love the Animal Kingdom cartridge, and wish I had more opportunities to use it. I then used chalk to give the camel some color, using a tan, light brown, and yellow and blending them all together. Next I cut all the pictures to as small as I could, and started layering them on the paper. I wanted all the camel pictures on one page, since that was the highlight of the trip, and the pictures from the petting zoon on the other. I lifted some of the pictures using foam tape, which I think looks awesome and gives the page some depth. I finished it off with some yellow strip washi tape and some little green arrows that I covered using cardstock.

Here is the Hump Day Commercial, incase you haven't seen it!!!
And if you are a Dallas Mavericks Fan, then you will love this spoof on "Hump Day" by Dirk!!!
We wanted to take Dallas somewhere that he would really love, for this years family vacation. We decided that San Antonio would be the perfect place for a 4 year old. We visited the Alamo, cruised down the riverwalk, played in the hotel pool, ordered room service, and visited Sea World. At Sea World, we saw Shamu, saw the diver and dolphin show, and the sea lion and otter show. Dallas was excited and completely worn out by the end of the day. It ended up being a perfect family vacation.
When we got home, I couldn't wait to scrapbook these pictures. I wanted to do one layout that would cover all parts of the trip. I made a small pocket out of the side of the page to keep all our ticket stubs and reciepts. Then I wanted to make the page look like a whale was jumping into the pictures, but I didn't have the right cricut to make the cut, so I used the fish cut from the Animal Kingdom cartridge and only used the bottom part. I also cut waves out using the pirate border from Wall Decor and More.
