Flip A Zoo

     If you know baseball, you know that NOBODY was playing baseball on July 19 - it was still the AllStar break. My husband was on his way out the door to play poker. I was wondering what I was going to do with my evening. I was feeling so lazy that I wasn't even interested in crafting. Fifteen minutes before my husband left, my phone "dinged" with a notice that a CUBS game was starting in a few minutes.  Turns out that CUBS/Cardinals had a make-up game. Man - I came alive!!!! I was dancing my way to the craft room. What to make; what to make. I rifled through my photos and found these 6 pics of my grandson showing off his Flipazoo collection. I pulled out the Graphic 45 Safari Adventure Collection and Sketch #158. I set the Apple TV to CUBS baseball and in no time at all I had a one-page layout and the CUBS had 9 runs to the Cardinals 6. Good news all around!

Sketch # 158 by Lisa Hidy

     I used my Cameo Silhouette to construct this title. I welded the word "Flip" with a pith helmet and added 3 mini silver eyelets for a realistic look. 

     Since I fussy cut and matted a zebra in the corner, I repeated the zebra print on the helmet band, title mat, and chipboard button.

Matted Zebra
     I shaped a piece of ephemera as a tag, added a zebra chipboard button, and a green ribbon knot. I penned a little journaling here.
