I have a thing for twine!

Hello good people! Here's a confession: I do have a thing for twine lately! Since I've finally got my hands on some of that product, I want to incorporate it in almost everything! And of course, I have a thing for sketches, especially when it comes to scrapping many pictures at a time. So when I saw that sketch by Donna Jannuzzi on Ella's blog, I knew I could finally attack those Zoo pics! Here's the sketch:



Every time we go to the zoo this happens: I take zillions of pictures and never have the courage to do anything with them. And I know why! For this layout it took me something like two hours to select, crop and print those pics (with me knowing the size they had to be). And I won't even mention trimming! But fortunately I will learn something in the process and next time I'll find my courage to tackle the subject of multiple photos events.

Enough of the talk, here's my take on the sketch that I had to stretch a little! :) I told you, many pictures! In order to fit a good part of them on those pages I mirrored the sketch, altered some pictures sizes and embellished it all...

The only animal stamp set I have is the one by Artemio, a belgium company.
As for the title I went with this cool alphabet set by myStamp Box that's called Royal Flush. With a little background touch of Back to the Basics set.

Thanks for sticking with me that long. And thanks Donna for your fantastic and inspiring sketches!

Agata, I am probably the only person who isn't enthralled with this craze for twine, but I must admit that it adds a wonderful touch to your lay out that couldn't be achieved otherwise. Great pictures and a wonderful layout!
