Wildlife Park

While with Grandma we took the girls to the Ballarat Wildlife Park
They were thrilled to feed the kangaroos


and squealed when the kangaroos tried to help themselves to the food


Lucy didn’t want anything to do with the kangaroos until we had been there for over an hour
but got brave near the end and patted them


she will now happily tell you that kangaroos are her favourite animal lol
Elizabeth, on the other hand, couldn’t get enough of the animals and walked around saying how cool it all was
She just loves animals


You could be fooled into thinking we only saw kangaroos lol
But there were MANY things to see
The girls even had the opportunity to get up close to a koala
Elizabeth had to hold the leaves so he would stay near them, while some photos were taken
Her little face was priceless :)
I used the Scout’s Honour kit from QTea to make this page to remember the time


was happy happy happy to spy this little koala on a page in the kit


did the journaling sideways, for something different
so here it is around the right way so you can read it :)


and see the jute circles?


I wanted to show you how easy they were to make
I used some scrap cardstock and punched out some circles


covered these with glue


cut about 70-80cm of string
knotted one end and placed the knot in the middle of the circle


then started to wind the string around itself


adding more glue as I went


I also added some string around the chipboard that frames the title
Nice way to add texture to the page :)

Pin It Now!
