It's A Jungle Out There!! Challenge Time!! :)

Happy Fabulous Friday, Friends!! :)  The weekend is upon us...  Have you had a SUPER week???  As many of you are aware, The-Girl-Child packed up and followed The-Boy-Child off to college yesterday -- I'll admit, I'm still in denial, but I might be handling it a bit better than The-Toby-Dog...  He curled up and slept at the front door all day yesterday...  He wasn't up for his usual treats or jaunts outside...  Isn't it amazing how your pets just "know"???

Since it's a FANTASTIC Friday, AND it's time for a NEW challenge here at Love To Crop!...  I thought we could celebrate all things wonderful and fun about some of my favorite animals...  So pull out your animal print papers and ribbons, add an animal image, or show us your own interpretation of "It's A Jungle Out There!!"

For a little inspiration, I have one of my very special friends and an incredible creation of hers to share with you....
Brenda from Creativity is only a State of Mind created this fabulous elephant sign...  If you're looking for some nifty creations with all kinds of different mediums, I'd love for you to visit my friend, Brenda...  I happened across Brenda's blog some time ago and was immediately amazed at all the incredible ideas she had!!  Little did I know that at some point down the road, we would be on the Getting Cricky Design Team together!!  I've so enjoyed getting to know Brenda -- She's such a loyal and caring friend...  If you haven't visited her before, I hope you'll click here and pop on over to become a follower of hers -- I know you won't be disappointed, and if you leave her a comment letting her know that you're stopping there from here, well I'll just have to do a drawing for a little goodie for someone who does!! :)

To follow up Brenda's incredible inspiration, here is a card from me...
And a few of my friends from the zoo wanted me to tell you that they hope to be a little inspiration for you too!!
Each of these photos was taken during our trip to the ZOO this past Monday (another last minute "Let's spend the day together" idea from The-Girl-Child!!)...  Thank you to my favorite zoo animal friends for inspiring today's challenge!!  I hope you'll join in with any animal-themed project (card, layout, altered art -- your choice!)!!  Please remember to mention the challenge and include a link to Love To Crop! in your post when linking up...  Can't wait to see what you create!! :)

** Cricut Cardz Challenge is ALSO having a challenge for "It's a Jungle Out There" until Tuesday, August 30th, so be sure to link up there as well!!  I was tickled to get to enter my Monkey card there too!! :)

Oh!!  One more thing -- YES, there will be a WINNER who will receive a little something-something from me -- And I have winners to announce from my last challenge PLUS some recent blog hops -- Those are all coming this weekend (sorry -- it's been a little hectic with the kiddos getting ready for school).  I will update this post with the last challenge winner too!! :)  Thanks!!

Thank you so much for having me as a guest designer this week. You are such an inspiration.
I just love your monkey card and if I didn't know any better I would have thought you made it for me. After the couple of weeks I've had, I could use a card like that...hehehe Great job.

Saw that there are 2 challenges in blog land having to do with "It's a Jungle Out There." This challenge here was posted 8/26 and I see that the 1st 2 entries linked have posts dated 8/25 and am aware of the wording 'new' but am confused as to how backlinked as in day before this post can be linked unless the link does not prevent it and one is on the honor system or if it is one day before there is some grace period so I decided to link a project I had posted 8/25 and this challenge link accepted it. What's a person to do?

I love your monkey card. Very Cute! I'll have to see if I can get something together for the challenge!

Oh Amy, your pictures are so amazing! What a great way to spend the day with your daughter! I swear that tiger is saying "cheese" for you! And the giraffe is thinking "what are you looking at?" Awesome pics! And your card is just the cutest! I will be back the next couple of days hopefully, with a project to link up! Have a wonderful weekend my sweet friend :)
