Zoo Pages

It was an interesting weekend. DH came home on Friday and surprised the kids! He just showed up at the bus stop and was waiting when they got off the bus! Adorable...

The Cherry Blossoms have bloomed! Cherry Blossom viewing, or Hanami, is a BIG deal here. We planned to go out on Sunday, but woke up to 3 inches of snow. In April. Snow. Ugh. So, we hunkered down and I got to craft!

I have cropped 28 pages this month. I know! I am so proud of myself! I must admit though, after reading how far behind everyone else is, it makes me feel better! At least I am not alone!

Here are the pages I am going to share with you today. They were taken during a trip to the Morioka Zoo in Spring of 2007.



Paper: Expedition (CTMH), Making Memories solids and Wildlife line
Accessories: CTMH stickease, Cricut Zooballoo cartridge, SU corner punch

Thanks for looking! Hope you have a great week!

That's always a great trip taking the kids to the zoo, I bet they had a lovely time. And I've read about the cherry blossom viewing, that must be a sight . . . when there isn't any snow!

Cute pages! We need to get to the zoo before we go. I can just see Ryan calling all of the animals "DOGGIE!"

Beautiful pages! I adore giraffes and love the one on your first page that is looking up, so cute! I'm so impressed with 28 pages in one month- you should be proud :) That's really great! I just posted on my blog last night about how I'm so happy that I've been doing better with scrapping too. It feels good, doesn't it? I can't believe it about the snow. Weather is so unpredictable. Hope the cherry blossoms survived alright. And, way to look at the bright side- getting some crafting done!

Oh I miss the Cherry Blossoms of Japan! I hope that you get to see them even with the snow.
It's great that you are getting so many pages done....do you have a great printer for your pics or do you order them on-line???
I really need a better way to get my pages done.
Love these with the zoo!!!
