"Are you sure this water is sanitary?"
I wanted to use some of the beautiful Scrap Within Reach paper that I recently purchased and thought it would go perfectly with these pictures I took at Disneyland a few years ago. I absolutely love the mix of brown, green and blue in these papers!
My friend Susan has just developed a new sketch blog that I absolutely LOVE! You must head over there immediately to check it out! Sketch Savvy
This is the sketch I thought would go perfectly with this paper, but since I wanted to make it a two-pager, I adapted the sketch and added a page. That's the wonderful thing about sketches, they give you inspiration and a place to start, and then you can make it into something that works for you!
In addition to the paper, I added a little Creative Imaginations felt trim which matched perfectly, and cut some flowers and leaves from Bazzill cardstock. The top flowers are some old cardstock that I covered with sheets from an old dictionary using Claudine Helmuth Studio Multi-Medium. I colored them with Ranger Distress Inks.
The brads on the flowers were made with the I-top by Imaginice. First I took a few small pieces of Claudine Helmuth Sticky Back Canvas and colored them with distress inks, then stamped on them with an Inque Boutique stamp. Then I just followed the directions on the I-Top and voila!
The title comes from Disney's Tarzan movies since these pictures were taken out in front of Tarzan's Treehouse (formerly the Swiss Family Robinson House). The cute little elephant, Tantor, says this as he is getting in the elephant pool. It cracks me up, so I thought I would link that section of the movie here.
