The Zoo with Baby Reed!

Last weekend LaLa took us on a field trip to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo and omg it was a blast! Reed just staaaaaared at all the animals and more than anything, just loved holding on to all the railings. Cuz he's a weirdo like that. LaLa was in charge of Reed, while I took about a thousand pictures of our day, and even managed to get a few of me with my little man, too.


Noel Mignon is having a cruise crop via Facebook right now, and I made this layout for a challenge I posted as part of the week's activities, called 'Maiden Voyage' - all about scrapbooking a "first time" something in your life. And I have to say, I'm pretty happy with it.  I am using a mix of the Noel Mignon Sweet & Simple kits and the South Shore big kit (sorry, already sold out!) for this layout.

I must confess that I am so not a "red" person - I usually don't use it in my layouts almost at all, but my mamala's red shirt kinda made it completely necessary, so red it is!! And it's a good thing both of these kits work so well for the green/red/mint/wood grain palette!

 This is probably the least complicated filler card I've ever made. Cut down the paper, hot glued the chipboard camera to the card, hot glued the summer chipboard banner to the camera, then tucked the two pennant stickers on each side. Then of course I added a couple of enamel dots. Cause ya hafta.

And that's it. And I feel oddly good about it. Something totally different than my usual style about one of the sweetest firsts on our little guy's record!
