Paper Players 170


Happy Sunday (again), peeps!  It’s time for a new Paper Players challenge!  Jaydee has a great one for us today:
What a super idea…you could go in lots of different directions with this one!  I don’t have many wildlife stamps, but I do have Zoo Babies, and those little images just make me smile, so I thought I’d put this little alligator to work:
LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 170 Zoo Babies

I went CAS with this; I simply embellished the alligator with a little glimmer paper heart and added some zig-zaggy embellishments:  a border of Pear Pizzazz from the Finishing Touches edgelits and the Chevron-embossed background.  My final touch was a heart-shaped clip decorated with a Gumball Green ribbon!  And I had to laugh…I alphabetize my stamps, so I used the first and last set of my current stash!!!
Hope you can play along with us this week with your wildlife-inspired creation!  Share it with us at the Paper Players so we can all enjoy it as well!  Here are links to the other designers if you’d like to check them out:


You may remember last year’s Halloween fiasco:

This year was MUCH better….we were even able to use the same costume and the hat (plus a sweatshirt this time):
We practiced saying “trick or treat” at the screen door:
In she comes with her treat bag….once we gave her some treats, she understood the trick or treat concept and was quite happy!!! 

Enjoy your day!
