Hanging At The Zoo Blog Hop "Wild About You"

Thank you for joining us today on My Cricut Craft Room's

Hanging at the Zoo Blog Hop

If you came from Crafty Sisters Creations  you are in the right place...
If not please visit to start the hop. 

Today I made....a layout using zoo animals.  Can you imagine adding pictures to this layout of a trip to the zoo with your children or grandchildren, a school trip, or perhaps pictures of your baby, child, teen, or your loved one. 

I found several sheets of animal print papers I had in my stash, which were perfect for this layout.  I used these prints in the layout along with  Bazzill papers to cut out the animals.  I used the Cricut Cartridge Animal Kingdom and Luau to create this layout. The leaves were cut with Luau, while I cut the animals out using Animal Kingdom.

Design Team Post


Connie is a retired special education teacher living in Barnegat, NJ with her husband, David.  Between them they have 4 children (ages 28 to 46), 7 grandchildren (ages 14 to 23) and 4 great-grandchildren (ages 6 month to 4 years old).  As an avid crafter for more than 20 years, Connie enjoys working in many different craft media, including scrapbooking, card making, and other papercrafting. 

            Initially Connie started working with the Wishblade in 2002, but as the Cricut became more popular she switched over to the Cricut Personal Cutter.  Within a year, Connie upgraded to the Cricut Expression in 2006 and has never looked back.  She is totally in love with the Cricut and uses at least one die cut, if not more, in all her creations. 
            One of Connie’s favorite projects is a wedding card box that was made for a granddaughter’s wedding     More than 30 flowers of varying sizes were used for this box…and each flower uses 4 to 6 flower shapes.  The Cricut was really helpful.
