Wild About You with a bit of Pink Passion (JAI Challenge 7)

Well who can believe it?!?!? It's only Saturday night and I am posting my entry into this week's Just Add Ink Challenge- a whole four days earlier than I usually do. So much more relaxing this way!!!! The reason being is that my little treasure slept for 3 hours today so I used the "bonus" time to do some creating just for me (not for business) and Waa-Laa here is my "Wild About You" Layout for this week's challenge.

The Just-Add-Ink Challenge was a colour challenge this week. Here are the colours:

Wow what a bright little lot!!! At first I thought "EEK" because they are not colours I often use alone never mind all together. But then I pictured a little Green Galore crocodile and the rest of my "Wild About You" A4 layout followed. It was a bit of a stretch adding Pink Passion to a boy's page but I think it actually fits in just nicely.

I had SOOOO much fun putting this together. I have always loved this picture of Elliot eating grass in the park and am so happy that this challenge motivated me to scrapbook it. I only noticed when I had finished my creation that he was wearing his little zebra shoes in this shot - which ties in ever so perfectly with the other zoo animals- fancy that!!!!

I have to admit to cheating ever so slightly though with the lion's Chocolate Chip mane but I just couldn't bring myself to give him a turquoise, green or pink mane!!! Poor little lion no one wants a mane those colours. Seeing as it's the only colour I have used that is not a challenge colour I hope I will be forgiven :o)

So here is my little "wild" child with his animal friends:

And a closer look at Elliot in his zebra shoes munching on grass:
