It's a Zoo Out There

I had the pleasure of making a new friend at a baby shower recently, and she's expecting her first little bundle of joy in a few months. She knows she's having a boy (yeah for boys), and wanted me to make her a name book to showcase some special photos of her son-to-be!

The nursery theme is monkey's, and the colors are espresso, sage & yellow...so awesome! I wanted the book to have a little variety, so I decided on a zoo theme (and Mom agreed) instead of doing 6 monkey layouts, and here's what the Mommy-to-be received!!!

Now for some detail:

All embellishments for this album were created using the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge.  I just love the way this turned out...this mom is lucky my sons name isn't Joseph ;)
