Challenge 20# In the jungle, the mighty jungle - a whimaway....

Hi everyone, Cazzy here, and it is time for another little bit of quirkyness. I can't get that tune out of my head (The Lion Sleeps Tonight), so the challenge this week is In The Jungle, and is sponsored by the lovely Digital Delights by Louby Loo who provided some great jungle images to the team to use. Of course there are more in this range and lots of new images in several ranges too.

Your project (and it can be any crafty project, ATCs, scrapbook layouts, altered art, cards, boxes - whatever you can do) must include jungle images. Does your lion sleep tonight?
The Design Team chosen winner will win 3 images of their choice from Digital Delights. Both the DT winner and the Public voted winner will be invited to join the Design Team as guests and will be able to proudly display the winner's badge on their blogs.

So without further ado here are the Design Team examples to inspire you:

First of all Guest Designer Gemma, who used the very cute Dillon the Lion image to make her lovely jungle birthday card.
Our second Guest Designer Tracy J made a fabulous fun side step card and used Dillon the Lion, Mickey the Monkey, the coconut tree from the accessory pack and Wild Thing sentiment all available from our sponsor.

Caro decided to make a scrapbook layout of her son Alex playing in his Grandparents garden...Alex likes to pretend he is in the jungle as their garden is so big, so Caro used Dillon the Lion, Mickey the Monkey and Timmy the Tiger on her layout, all coloured in with promarkers.

Diane was quite inspired by the last challenge still (anything but a card). So instead of making the usual card decided to make a door sign for a nephews bedroom door. Using the Timmy tiger digistamp and also the palm tree digistamp, they were enlarged and then turned into a paper piecing.

I've used Dillon the Lion too. I've decoupaged him, printing out and colouring four Dillons and layered him onto animal papers from our sponsors as well as some freebies I found.

Cazzy will be along later!

  1. Lovely makes everyone, I am still not there with mine due to being ill and other problems. Now the computer seems to be on the way out so hope I can get something done and there.
