Scrapbooking with the Pink Elephant

Have you heard?!!  The Pink Elephant is doing Scrapbook challenges now!!  We have been bringing you some fun, fantastic challenges for the scrapbook Queens/Kings out there in cyberspace.  If you haven't been by to check it out now is the time!  We have a great sketch for you this week.
I am not sure how I came up with my layout this week.  I was truly inspired by the sketch but, I am not sure if you can tell that or not....hmmmm.  Do you ever start out with one thing in your mind but somewhere along the way things start to go their own way?  Well, I think that is what happened to me..LOL!!

I have a funny story behind these pictures too.  First I gotta tell you this was a great day, complete with me falling out of my folding chair and almost into the lake.  I can laugh about it...It really was funny and I am sure a sight to see!  But that is not the story I am sharing today. 

 So the boys were out fishing with dad aka POPS and they both were really doing well.  Both were catching lots of fish.  Zak (littlest boy) was doing so well holding his pole and reeling them in when......he got a bite on his line.  We all thought he just had a pretty good size fish this time.  Pops had to help him out a little and when we finally got the "catch" up out of the water what we saw was CRAZY!!  He had not only caught a fish but a fish with a SNAKE hanging onto it! I am not sure whathappened first.  The snake had the fish and the fish also went for a bite to eat (not likely right?!).  Or the fish was hooked and the snake was in the mood take out! HA!  Either way I tried so hard to snap a shot but when I was finally snapped out of amazement and grabbed the camera to take a shot the snake let go! GRRRR!  Oh well, it is a great memory I am sure we will not forget.

Here are the details of this layout. The papers I used for are from Cosmo Cricket (Earth Love).  I also used a Unity stamp for the sun and some machine stitching.  

I hope you have enjoyed my layout and story today.  Be sure to take a look over on The PinkElephant for some more great layouts and Join us for some fun too!  

Happy Craftin'! JennK
