For my project I made a layout for the pictures I took at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. You can purchase lettuce and feed the giraffe herd, it's so fun to watch their long tongues reaching towards your lettuce filled hand.
I found the paper at a local scrapbook store, the giraffe head came from a pattern called A Day at hte Zoo from Scraptastical Kreations. I really struggled with the giraffe herd at the bottom of the page but I love how it turned out.

So, lets get started!!!  If you are here from Nancy's blog - then you are in the right place, but if you have just showed up here at my blog - make sure you go to the beginning at Lynda's blog because it's always best to start at the first of the hop for all the GREAT ideas you will end up seeing! 

Our lineup for the day:

8. Blog Hoppin' Mamma's -  

For my project I made a birthday invitation for my son's Thomas themes birthday. I have several other decorations planned out so if you are looking for Thomas ideas check back. I had planned to have them finished in time for this hop but my parents decided to come visit us a week early. I did a mad cleaning marathon instead of working on party decorations :) 
To make my card I used a file called choo choo from Scrappy Dew to make the train and train tracks. The tunnel is from a file called Dear Santa I was framed from Little Scraps of Heaven.  

Now for the fun part - the blog candy...  One lucky winner will receive a box of scrapbooking goodies donated by Deborah!!!  To be eligible for the drawing you must:
