Happy Family Summer Zoo Trip

 We decided to participate in the Happy Family Movement's Summer Bucket List as a family.  So often we have great ideas of activities or projects we want to try with the kids and we will say "let's do that this summer".  Summer comes and goes and we forget to do things.  So this year we wrote it all down on fun bright cards in our diningroom.  

For one of our activities we went to the Philadelphia Zoo!  The kids had a blast!  Its a good thing to because the next day, June 1st to be exact, I fell and broke my ankle in several places, tore some ligaments and bruised tendons.  I am determined to make this summer list work as much as I can even if I have to make "glow cones" from the sofa - lol

I got five free digital layouts with Studio J because I'm going to convention this year in Dallas - at least I hope I'm going!  So I used two of the layouts to document our trip to the zoo.  Here is the first layout
Initial Set up for this layout:   Select Lucky paper kit, Portrait Collection pattern and kit mix 5

Studio J Tip:  Place the circle from medium accent and crop in half.  Copy and paste to create a scallop border along the blue ribbon.  So cool!  You can do this with any of the many digital stickers to make your pages uniquely your own :)

Studio J Tip:  To make a unique embellishment create a journal box, select "none" for background and type an uppercase "O" in Cobbler font sized at 113.  Take any of the small accents and place it inside the "O"

 I do like that even with a broken ankle I can get some digital pages done :)  If you want to check out 
Studio J you can do try it out for FREE and I'd be happy to answer any questions.  You do need to set up an account but you don't have to pay a thing to play around with it - I love that I went on the trip with the kids and less than a week later I had the photos on pages and in my scrapbook! 

Check out Happy Family Movement so see what others are doing this summer!  Do you have any summer family plans?  Thanks for stopping by - I'll show the other page from our zoo trip tomorrow!
