Zoo statue pictures

This week I was looking at old pictures and went thru a group from the trip my daughter Leslie, my brother and my Dad took to Sydney, Austrlia.    Since I'm going to visit Leslie next month I wanted to get some more layouts finished to take to her.    So I've been working on layouts from this trip for her.
She is getting married May 4th so after that I'll be busy with wedding layouts and not much else.  :)

At Scrap Our Stash, Stash A Thon Challenge #11 is   Hats/Triangles.     Check it out    HERE
This birthday day challenge was to use triangles somehow on your layout, which can look something like birthday party hats.    When I was reading about this challenge I thought of these pictures of Leslie in her hat and the gorilla statue at the zoo, so knew those would be what I would use on my layout.    I even had patterned paper scraps to use to cut my triangles and viola I have my layout completed.     The title I got in a swap a few years back and it was on a piece of paper but I peeled it off the background paper and just used the cut-out for the title.     Then I used my white gel pen and did some faux stitching around the letters in the title to make it stand out.   I liked the look so went ahead and did faux stitching on the triangles also.
